I am proud to be an Arizonan because of the many places that you go to eat. If you have lived in Arizona for a time, then you know how many places we have to eat at. That is one of the reasons that people come to Arizona.

The second reason I am proud to be an Arizonian, is the way people live here. Most people come here in the winter, but then they go back to where they came from in the summer. They enjoy the warm winters that where they come from maybe doesn’t have as warm winters as we do. I have lived here all my life and know how hot it is the summer. In addition to that, we have a lot of tourist attractions such as the Grand Canyon. 

Some positive things about Arizona are that since the summers are hot longer then other states you can swim longer. Another thing is how long you can ski in flagstaff. It snows there 1/3 of the year. The last thing is how friendly people are in Arizona.

Some things that make people live in Arizona are the attractions, such as the Grand Canyon or sun splash. The snowbirds come in the winter and then they go back to wherever they are from. I think that more people come to see the Grand Canyon.

Those are a few things that make me proud to be an Arizonan. There are still more reasons why, but there are many more.
