Arizona Map Information

In 1912, Arizona became the 48th state just before Alaska and Hawaii. It is now known by the state nickname, “The Grand Canyon State.” The state is landlocked bordered by four other states, and Mexico on the southern border. Most of the western edge of the state is defined by the Colorado River which separates Arizona from Nevada and California. The Colorado River is also what created the Grand Canyon which was one of the first National Parks in the US and is over a mile deep in some areas.
Arizona is well known by their dry, hot climate in the lower areas, which may be part of the reason it’s one of the fastest growing states in the United States. The state flower of Arizona is the “Flower of Saguaro Cactus,” the state bird is the “Cactus Wren,” and their state motto is, “God Enriches.” The largest city is Phoenix with a population of 1,513,000 people.
