Surrounded by the dramatic landscape of the Sonoran Desert, Phoenix combines the charm of the Old West with the energetic buzz of a modern, thriving metropolis. Over the past 40 years Phoenix has more than quadrupled in population, making it the sixth largest city in the nation today. Although the city now sprawls through the nearby desert, there are still enough towering cactus and craggy mountains nearby to give you an idea of what the settlers must have seen when they arrived here on horseback.
With more than 330 days of sunshine a year, it’s no wonder that Phoenix is known around the world as a haven for outdoor recreation. You can laze in the sun and soak up the desert heat, take a dip in an oasis of cool water or indulge in a game of tennis or golf almost any day of the year. For adventure seekers the options are limitless—including everything from hot air ballooning and horseback riding to rock climbing and white water rafting.
When the sun sinks below the desert floor, the city’s cultural attractions come to life. Phoenix offers an impressive array of music, dance, theater and symphony concerts, as well as an incredible variety of culinary delights. Scottsdale, a neighboring town, is especially renowned as a visual arts center, ranking behind only New York and Santa Fe in its concentration of art galleries.
Whether you stay for a season or a lifetime, Phoenix will extend a warm desert welcome and a lingering embrace to all who make their home in the ‘Valley of the Sun.’
