“Phoenix is known as Arizona’s Urban Heart. It continues to grow, change, and adapt with the times. What began with copper, cattle, climate, cotton, and citrus, turned into real estate, finance, manufacturing, retail, and healthcare. The times may change, but Phoenix is always there, leading the way.”
Located in the northern part of the Sonoran Desert and with a population of over 1.6 million people, Phoenix is both hot and alive! The fifth most populous city in the United States and the heartbeat of the “Valley of the Sun” Phoenix has been growing by leaps and bounds over the last 20 years. A booming economy and an amazing climate have caused a lot of people to pack up their things and head west, as the old saying goes, to this great city.
Phoenix averages over 300 days of sunshine a year. Can you even imagine that? It’s easy to say, and it’s easy to think about how cool that would be, but when you’re living there and every day gets bright and beautiful sunshine, you begin to wonder why you would want to live anywhere else. The city has great outdoor activities including; hiking, riding ATV’s, trips through the Grand Canyon and more! If that all sounds good, but a little bit too much like work, there’s always the Desert Botanical Gardens. It’s a great place to learn about the plants and climate that are historic to the region.
Phoenix has some amazing outdoor activities that set it apart from a lot of other cities, but it also has everything you’d expect from one of the biggest cities in the United States. The night life is special. From arcade bars to the Crescent Ballroom, where national music acts rock the stage, Phoenix has it all. Stop by and check it out.
