Arizona is a part of the US region commonly known as the
South West. Phoenix and Tucson are the two major
cities of Arizona, however the name Phoenix is also used to
define the city of Phoenix (capital of Arizona) and the
whole mega polis area, which also includes Mesa, Tempe,
Scottsdale, Glendale, Chandler, Gilbert and a few other
cities, which all have their own councils, police and taxes.
The name Arizona, comes from from the Spanish interpretation
of "arizuma" which originated from the Aztec Indian word for
"silver-bearing" and Pima Indian word "arizonac"
for "little spring place". Because of its mild winter
climate, Arizona is well known as a vacation destination for
"snowbirds" from Canada and the northern states as they
escape the cold winters.
