Did you know that Arizona is located in the American Southwest. It is the 48th state admitted to the Union on February 14, 1912. The word Arizona derives from the Aztec Indian word "arizuma," which means "silver-bearing." Arizona’s most famous and now official nickname “The Grand Canyon State” celebrates its most iconic feature, the Grand Canyon. Arizona is also known as the “Copper State” revealing its abundance in this mineral. Approximately 85 percent of Arizona’s land is comprised of national forests, national parks, recreation and wilderness areas, wildlife preserves and Indian reservations. In addition, Arizona is home to several of the world’s “sky islands,” mountains surrounded by valleys that boast wide-ranging ecosystems of plant and animal life.
The total area of Arizona is 113,998 square miles (295,000 square kilometers) and is the 6th largest state in the U.S. All New England plus the state of Pennsylvania would fit inside Arizona. It’s the 15th most populous state with 6.5 million people. Phoenix is the 6th largest city in America with an estimated population of 1,488,750. It is located within the heart of the 13th largest metropolitan area in the country with an estimated population of 4,329,534. Phoenix is the most populous state capital in the United States.
Currently, Arizona’s tourism industry ranks as one of the state’s top export-oriented industries. Other top performing Arizona industries include micro-electronics, mining, aerospace and agriculture.
Arizona is a year-round destination. Sunny skies and low humidity prevail 300 days a year across the state. The busiest season in the desert areas (southern half of the state) lasts from January through March. The peak season in the mountainous regions (in the northern half of the state) are the opposite of the desert areas and are from June through August.
Arizona does not observe daylight savings, however the Navajo Nation in northeastern Arizona does. Arizona remains on Mountain Standard Time year-round.
