Was your trip to Hawaii canceled? Are you depressed? Well you shouldn’t be, because you can still come to Arizona. Arizona is a very opulent state. It is also a great place where you can just have fun on vacation. While you’re in Arizona you can do a lot of fascinating things, like snowboarding, skiing, hiking, cycling, swimming, and you can visit a various amount of national parks. You can do almost all of those things any day you want in Arizona. Here are my most important reasons why I am proud to be an Arizonan.
One reason that Arizona is a great state is because of the sports you can play. For example, football is played a lot in Arizona because of our climate. It is blazing hot in the summer and freezing cold in the winter. That gives us two seasons to play and two seasons to relax and take a break. Arizona is also very dry and we almost never get rain. That means that our practices will not canceled. However, we don’t only play football, we also play soccer, tennis, baseball, volleyball, basketball and golf. Those are all played just as often. In fact, some of the aforementioned sports are played a few times a week.
Another reason that I am proud to live in Arizona is because of the vegetation. We have all sorts of plants like cacti, flowers, trees, bushes and vines. Some of those plants are only grown in places like Arizona because of our climate. Our most famous flower is the Saguaro cactus blossom.
