Arizona has yet to receive a really good snow storm this year but we’re still holding fast to hope, especially as Christmas inches its way here. If you’re looking for some towns and cities across the state that look absolutely charming this time of year with Christmas decorations and even a dusting of snow, here are 7 of the most enchanting. This historic town looks absolutely charming even outside of the holiday season thanks to its colorful Victorian buildings.
Winter has a way of making some of our favorite places look even more charming. Perhaps it has something to do with the glistening snow, the twinkling Christmas lights, or all the food-centered festivities. Either way, we think it doesn’t take much for New Mexico’s towns and cities to look like a scene from a snow globe this time of year. Here’s a peek at a handful that are especially fitting of the designation.
Earlier this year, the U.S. Census Bureau released figures that show Arizona is one popular state. The entire state saw a increase of 1.7% in its total population in 2016 with urban areas becoming denser and even our little towns experiencing some degree of growth. Not all Arizonans are happy about population growth but at least we’re not seeing our population numbers plummet!
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
