Although I was not born in Arizona, it has been my home for the last 19 years and I can't imagine living anywhere else.
I live in Scottsdale, Arizona, which is part of the Phoenix metropolitan area and home to some of the best shopping, resorts and restaurants in the nation. Many complain about the scorching summer temperatures here, but it's a small price to pay to enjoy 70-degree "winter" temperatures. What is also great about Arizona is that you can drive just a few hours to the ocean, Mexico, Las Vegas and snow in the mountains. So really any type of climate or scenery is easy to get to from the Phoenix area.
Additionally, Arizona has stunning sunsets and beautiful mountains. And the great year-round weather means many Arizonians are very active. We have hiking trails, biking paths, running trails and fitness studios on every corner.
Arizona is a pretty fabulous place and my mission is to let everyone know!
