Arizona m ou f ?

puis j'irais en Arizona (from fill in the blanks). As I learned from other sources all US states are masculine but 9: la Californie, la Caroline du Nord, la Caroline du Sud, la Floride, la Géorgie, la Louisiane, la Pennsylvanie, la Virginie, la Virginie occidentale. So, Arizona is not feminine ? So shouldn't it be à l'Arizona?

“En” can be used for “pronunciation” purposes when the country/region name begins with a vowel, even when it is masculine gender. 

For example: en Ontario or dans l’Ontario in the lesson.
