By: Cecilia Valenzuela

What is it about the state of Arizona that attracts so many visitors each and every year?

Is it because of the diverse climate? Is it because Arizona is known so well known for the highly rated golf courses that allows golfers to play virtually every day? Certainly there are those who rate the high quality health care as one of the major reasons why they travel to the state?

Or is the reason that so many people flock to the desert southwest is just because of the simple fact that constant sunshine can be felt on more than 300 days a year?

There are many reasons why many visitors travel to Arizona. Some of these visitors like the state so much that they end up making it their permanent residence. There just happens to be a long list of many cities and remote towns that offer visitors everything they are looking for.

With such a diverse climate along with the size of the state, it's probably no wonder why Arizona ranks high when it comes to the top states people visit. Arizona ranks sixth among the states in size and is spread out over 114,006 square miles, (295,274 square kilometers), which includes 364 square miles, (943 square kilometers) of water. The size certainly offers not only the visitors, but the residents more than enough room to explore this wondrous southwestern United States attraction.

Arizona is home to the world famous Grand Canyon and so many other famous tourist sites such as Sedona, Tucson, Phoenix and the White Mountains and the famous road known as Route 66, that never stop attracting people from experiencing the amenities that the Grand Canyon state offers.

Whether you are looking for the city life of Phoenix or Scottsdale or looking to take in a little rest and relaxation of the mountainous high country, Arizona has so many places to choose from that the only problem you might have is choosing one single location over the other locations that attract so people from many cities and countries.

Many visitors will be traveling to the desert southwest when Arizona hosts Super Bowl 42 on February 3, 2008. There have been many already who have purchased their Super Bowl tickets and have made all of their other necessary reservations to experience this NFL experience of a lifetime.

Arizonan truly has it all. If you like warmer weather, you can be rest assured that you will find that, as temperatures in the summer typically range well over 100 degrees. In the summer months, there usually aren't too many days when it is humid, except for the monsoon season, which runs from the first part of July until the first part of September. Even then, if you have lived or live in an area outside of Arizona where it is known for humidity, you will likely think that the monsoon season is not that humid compared to what you are accustomed to.
