Arizona's name is believed to have come from the Spanish interpretation of arizuma, an Aztec Indian word meaning 'silver bearing.' The name may also be based on the Pima Indian word arizonac for 'little spring place.'
Arizona is located in the southwestern region of the United States. Its capital and largest city is Phoenix. Arizona is one of the Four Corners states. It has borders with New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, California, and Mexico. Arizona is noted for its desert climate in its southern half, with very hot summers and mild winters.
There’s so much to see and do in Arizona. Some of the destinations you shouldn’t miss are the Arizona’s Sonoran Desert, Grand Canyon National Park, Red Rock State Park, Alcantara Vineyard and Winery, Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village, Biltmore Fashion Park, Lake Powell, Four Corners, and Monument Valley.
