Home of the Grand Canyon, one of the seven natural wonders of the world, the state of Arizona achieved its statehood as late as 1912.Though it is the 48th state and last of the contiguous states to be admitted to the Union, it was the home to numerous Native American tribes for thousands of years before the modern era.
The state’s name originated from a Spanish name, Arizonac, meaning “small spring”. The pronunciation sounded like “Arissona” to the European settlers, and ultimately it came to be called ‘Arizona’. However, the theory that the state’s name originated from the Spanish term Árida Zona (“Arid Zone”) is a misconception. The state is nicknamed as the ‘Copper State’ as it is the largest producer of the metal in the country.
Part of the Grand Canyon National Park, one of the first national parks in the US, the Grand Canyon is a deep, colorful, steep-sided gorge, carved by the Colorado River, and is a major tourist attraction. The state is also the home to “Meteor Crater”, one of the most well-preserved meteorite impact sites in the world, created around 50,000 years ago!
The metropolitan area of Phoenix, the capital and largest city in the state covers more than 14,500 square miles and is one of the biggest metropolitan areas in the world in terms of area size.
