Ten on Tuesday #2

This week's Ten on Tuesday is: '10 Places You'd Take a Tourist to See in Your Hometown'

I live in the State of Arizona. A beautiful state I have called my home town for several years now. I moved out here in the Fall of 1994, so I've been here nearly fourteen years now, and I couldn't imagine living anywhere else. If someone came to visit me here, there are several places here in the State I would try to make sure they saw.

1. Grand Canyon - This is probably a given, but it is one of the wonders of the world. It has to be seen.
2. Colorado River - This goes along with the above. Right across the river from Kingman, you also have Laughlin, which is a mini-Vegas!
3. Chase Field formerly Bank One Ballpark, where the Arizona Diamondbacks play. It is an awesome venue to see.
4. Superstition Mountains - This mountain range just outside of Phoenix is beautiful. While there we can check out Goldfield and The Lost Dutchman Mine.
5. The Sedona Red Rocks
6. A casino - there are a few around the state that have been built over the years. Fort McDowell is the oldest, and Casino Arizona is probably the newest. There is even a Harrah's casino about an hour away from me.
7. The Phoenix Zoo and the Desert Botanical Garden
8. The Heard Musuem - A museum containing a large number of artifacts and information about the Native American's in this area.
9. Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park
10. ASU and Gammage Auditorium - A beautiful campus and Gammage regularly gets many Broadway shows.

All in all, Arizona is great state to live in. Yes, it is hotter than hell in the summer months, but you honestly learn how to adapt to it over the years. It is a beautiful state with a rich history.
