For the best moving company Arizona has to offer, look no further!
Arizona is often mistakenly thought of as meaning “arid zone,” when in reality, its name originates from an early Spanish name, Arizonac, which translates to “small spring.” Being the southwest quadrant of the American Four Corners states, when people think of Arizona, they think of cacti and deserts, but the state has so much more to offer. Arizona has a vibrant culture stemming from a combination of peoples and features mild winters and areas of forest pines, mountain ranges, colorful canyons, national parks, and even snow in some regions.
When you make Arizona your new home, there are a variety of regions to suit your lifestyle. Arizona, well known as a desert basin region, was shaped by prehistoric volcanoes. The state’s high region is the Colorado Plateau in the northeast borders, where you can find the country’s greatest concentration of National Park Service units, with the largest stand of Ponderosa Pine trees in the world being contained within the stateliness. Approximately one fourth of the state is designated as Indian Reservations. Around Flagstaff, Tucson, and Alpine, you will find ski resorts. West of Winslow, Arizona is the Barringer Crater. One of the most well-preserved meteor impact sites in the world, it is a disarray of broken boulders the size of small houses along the rim spanning an impressive mile in width and over 500 feet deep.
The state’s capital, Phoenix, is the largest city and has been the home of many notable pop culture icons such as Alice Cooper, Stevie Nicks, Lynda Carter, Frank Lloyd Wright, Zane Grey, and Steven Spielberg. The city has plenty of outdoor attractions that capitalize on the area’s natural beauty. The Phoenix area has over 200 golf courses, and the Phoenix Zoo is the nation’s largest non-profit zoo. Being a western town, the earliest restaurants were primarily steakhouses, but today, the city is well-known for its authentic Mexican food.
As a citizen of Arizona, these amazing landscapes will be in your own backyard. In the Native American-governed territory of the Navajo Nation lies the desert badlands known as the Painted Desert. Here you can observe striking colored bands across the landscape where the elements continue to change the deserts appearance by exposing layers of iron and magnesium compounds within the rocks. Many dinosaur tracks, fossils, and petrified wood are found in the region as well.
The Grand Canyon National Park is one of the first national state parks to be established, and it is here where you can see where the Colorado River carved this colorful, steep sided gorge regarded as one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Depending on which side you approach from, the view can vary drastically. It isn’t hard to see why the Pueblo people regarded the dramatic landscape as a holy place.
