Arizona Fun Facts
How well do you know Arizona? Known for extreme heat and a diverse landscape, the state is recognized for being home to – The Grand Canyon. In fact, it’s the official nickname of Arizona: The Grand Canyon State. There’s a lot to Arizona with hot tidbits and cool experiences that you’ve yet to explore or didn’t know, until now.
It snows in Arizona – really, it does. The higher elevations of the northern and southeastern parts of the state see snowfall and a lot of it. According to the National Weather Service, on average, Flagstaff records nearly 102 inches of the white stuff every year. For comparison, the snowiest city in the U.S. last year was Caribou, Maine, which received 114 inches of snow. So you can see, Flagstaff isn’t that far off from taking over the top spot. (Sorry, Erie, Pennsylvania, we can’t forget about you guys.)
When we think Arizona, you can’t help but pay homage to the late U.S. Senator John McCain. Born in Panama, Senator McCain did not grow up in Arizona. His father, an admiral, was stationed around the world, meaning a young McCain experienced different cultures and lifestyles. It wouldn’t be until later in life, after being a military officer and held as a POW during the Vietnam War that Senator McCain would set his eyes on Arizona as home. And while he’s not originally from Arizona, there are many famous Arizonans who have been born and raised in the state: Emma Stone, Michelle Branch, Geronimo, Lynda Carter, Joe Jonas and Shawn Michaels a few to name.
Are you familiar with the saguaro cactus? It’s plant architecture is so definite and makes it a must see in Arizona’s Sonoran Desert. If you plan on checking it somewhere else, then all we can say is “good luck.” The saguaro cactus is rare, so rare that it can only be found in the Sonoran Desert.
