Happy Statehood Day, Arizona!

Desert sceneA little over a century ago in 1912, the beautiful state we call home became the state of Arizona. So forget that it’s Valentine’s Day and go celebrate Arizona’s statehood!

Check out these 10 facts about Arizona so you can impress your friends on Arizona’s birthday:

1. Arizona will turn 104 this year.
2. Arizona became the 48th state in 1912. Prior to it becoming a state, it was known as a territory of New Mexico, but often referred to as Arizona.
