One of the Four Corners states, Arizona’s temperate climate and diverse topography make it a landmine for outdoor sports. Hiking in Grand Canyon National Park, hitting a few rounds on the sunny golf courses, or relaxing at the spas are common past times here in the desert. The state’s Native American history is heavily folded into its robust art scene—Southwestern and Native American art reigns supreme in Arizona’s largest art museums and in the up-and-coming artist communities popping up throughout the desert state. Festivals, cultural performances and public educational programs are at your fingertips when you choose Arizona.* What more do you need than gorgeous weather, sprawling landscapes, and abundant opportunities to get in the zone in Arizona?*Wikipedia, “Arizona”, “Colleges and Universities in Arizona” *www.GPEC.org
