No matter where you are, Arizona Highways brings a piece of home

Have you ever traveled far away and saw something familiar that you would never have suspected would appear thousands of miles from home?

It’s happened to a few of us over the years. One of our colleagues here at ADOT once traveled to Japan and encountered a subway rider wearing an Arizona Cardinals jersey. 


Do you know what isn’t random? Finding a piece of Arizona as far away as Asia or actually on just about every continent on Earth (possibly even Antarctica). That piece of our iconic state is the world-famous Arizona Highways magazine. 

Pardon us a little humble-brag, but Arizona Highways is awesome and is published right here at ADOT.

It gets around, though. People all over the globe are familiar with Arizona Highways, which has outstanding photography, great writing, layout and design, and, well, it is just a cool publication all-around.

You don’t have to take our word for it. As a recent news release pointed out, Arizona Highways just took home not one, but at least two full armloads of awards for excellence. This photo is the cover to an essay it just won a gold award for. 

We would like to congratulate everyone who makes Arizona Highways come to life every month to show people all over our planet what a uniquely colorful state Arizona is in every way. 

And if it is in Antarctica, we hope anyone there who reads it feels a little warmer.
