Shipping from the State of Arizona to Rhode Island
Arizona was originally part of New Mexico; however, the land was yielded to the United States in 1848 and became a separate territory in 1863. On February 14, 1912, Arizona became the last of the 48 contiguous United States to be admitted to the union.
Arizona is located in the southwestern region of the United States. It is also part of the Western and the Mountain states. Arizona is the 6th largest and the 14th most populous of the 50 states. Arizona shares the Four Corners region with Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico; its other neighboring states are Nevada and California to the west and the Mexican states of Sonora and Baja California to the south and southwest. Both the capital city and the largest city is Phoenix.
Arizona is nicknamed “The Grand Canyon State”. It is also well-known as “The Copper State” and “The Valentine State”. The state tree is the Palo Verde, the state bird is the Cactus Wren and the state flower is the Saguaro Cactus Blossom. The state motto is “God Enriches” (Latin: Ditat Deus).
Shipping to the State of Arizona to Rhode Island
Rhode Island, measuring only about 48 miles long and 37 miles wide, is the smallest of the U.S. states. Despite its small area, Rhode Island, known as the “Ocean State,” boasts over 400 miles of coastline. Rhode Island was founded by Roger Williams in 1636, who had been banished from the Massachusetts colony for his advocacy of religious tolerance and the separation of church and state.
During the colonial period, Newport was a major hub for shipping and trade, and in the 19th century, Rhode Island was at the forefront of the Industrial Revolution and the establishment of power-driven textile mills. Rhode Island hosted the first National Lawn Tennis Championship in 1899 and is home to the Tennis Hall of Fame. Famous Rhode Islanders include novelists Cormac MacCarthy and Jhumpa Lahiri, actor James Woods, television personality Meredith Vieira and Civil War U.S. Army officer Ambrose Burnside.
