PHOENIX -- Last week, Tom and Kathleen Morris of Burnsville, Minnesota won nearly $229 million and became the largest lottery winners ever in Minnesota.
The Morrises, who have been married for 38 years, now have 60 days to decide whether to take a one-time cash payout of around $123 million (before taxes), or roughly $7.5 million a year (before taxes) over the next 30 years.
With that kind of windfall, we think the Morrises may just be in the market for a new house...and what better place is there for a couple of Minnesota Snowbirds that sunny, warm Arizona?
We've selected a wide range of luxury homes from across Arizona for the Morrises to preview in our Arizona Mansions Photo Galleries.

Modestly priced between $3 and $30 million dollars, we've included some lovely estates near Flagstaff, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Prescott, and Tucson.
We even tossed in a $38 million vacation home in Honolulu for comparison purposes. (Tom and Kathleen, we think you'll agree that Arizona is an easy choice over Hawaii, but we want you to see all of your options).
Take a look at these photo galleries and let us know which home you'd pick for a couple of lottery winners who are ready to come out of the cold.
