Economy of Arizona
Arizona makes a lot of money off of: aeronautical products, electronics, cotton, grains, fruits, and vegetables. It also makes money off the Grand Canyon. Arizona makes enough cotton to make each person in the U.S. more than one pair of jeans
My economic location is the Grand Canyon. This is because lots of tours of the canyon make the state money. Many tourists from around the world come to see it.The Grand Canyon is 277 miles long, and 18 miles wide.
Historical location
My historical location is Tombstone, Arizona. I chose Tombstone because in 1881, the famous OK Corral gunfight happened. 9 people fought, 3 people were killed, and 2 people were wounded. In 2010 the population was 1,380. Tombstone was founded in 1879 by Ed Scheifflen.

14. Billy The Kid killed his first victim in Bonita, Arizona
15. The original London Bridge was dismantled, fixed, and sent back stone by stone in Lake Havasu City, Arizona
Geographical location
I chose Meteor Crater, Arizona as my
geographical location. This is because a meteor crashed there. That makes a big crater, which could interest a geographer. Meteor Crater is 1,200 meters wide, and 170 meters deep.
Political location
My political location is Phoenix.
Phoenix is the capital of Arizona.
Phoenix has 1,445,632 people, and is the largest city in Arizona. In 2001, Phoenix had more car thefts than any other city.
Fun location
My fun location is Kitt's peak national
observatory. Kitt's peak has 24 optical telescopes, and 2 radio telescopes. It is 56 miles away from Tucson, Arizona. Kitt's peak has the most optical telescopes in the world.
