Welcome, Arizona!

August 8, 2007

We are pleased to announce that Lending Club is now welcoming borrowers from Arizona. To commemorate this occasion, we thought we’d share some fun facts we discovered about the 48th state.

    • Arizona has the largest stand of ponderosa pines in the world. Arizona also has more parks and national monuments than any other state, more mountains than Switzerland, and more golf courses than Scotland.
    • There are more boat owners in Arizona (in relation to the population) than any other state in the US.
    • Arizona is unique in many ways… it has dehydrated rivers, trees made of stone, cactus that blooms only at night, a bird that can run faster than it can fly, the only poisonous species of lizard in the nation, a river named Colorado that spends most of its time in Arizona, and a retirement community named Youngtown.
    • Arizona is home to the original London Bridge – it was purchased from London and reassembled in Lake Havasu City, stone by stone.
    • Camels were used in the mid-1800s to survey a route for an Arizona wagon road – it eventually became the route followed by the Santa Fe Railroad and U. S. Highway 66.

Once again, a big welcome to our friends in Arizona who will now be able to enjoy the benefits of person-to-person lending!
