Where are you from? I guarantee it isn't half as cool as AZ.
It's cooler, NY. Lots of awesome mountains and landscapes upstate. NYC is mostly to be avoided, bar selected areas. Specifically, I'm from Long Island. Nice area to raise your kids and all, in most parts, but apart from some good beaches and parks, it's mostly strip mall after strip mall.
Arizona's landscapes look really compelling but the intense heat is something I could never get used to. That and all of the Republicunts who live around there. Living amongst mostly Democraps in NY is bad enough.
