Thanks for visiting our beautiful state and I'm so happy you enjoyed it! We moved here 16 years ago (job related) and only planned on staying a year or two. Well, we're still here.
We have traveled to many other destinations seeking something better but never found it. The weather is hard to beat and no natural disasters. I think a lot of folks tend to shy away from border states but we have found it to be safer than a lot of other locations. The food, culture and scenery is fantastic. Yes it tends to be hot and dry but it beats floods, hurricanes, and SNOW!!
I grew up in Tucson and have visited the Pima Air Museum several times. It is awesome! My uncle flew 47's & 52's among others and was stationed at Davis Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson so I was able to see first hand the planes he piloted. It's a must see destination when in Arizona.
Thanks again for visiting and come back to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta in October. An incredible sight to see for 10 days. You won't regret it.
