DescriptionABOUT PHOENIX

Things are different in the desert. The sky is bigger. The stars are brighter. The sunsets stop you in your tracks.

It’s a feeling that can’t be conjured, landscaped or kindled with twinkling bulbs. John Ford knew that. So did Frank Lloyd Wright. Come to Greater Phoenix and you’ll understand, too.

America’s fifth-largest city still has real cowboys and rugged mountains and the kind of cactus most people see only in cartoons. Phoenix is the gateway to the Grand Canyon, and its history is a testament to the spirit of puebloans, ranchers, miners and visionaries.

Projected against this rich backdrop is a panorama of urban sophistication: Resorts and spas that drop jaws and soothe souls. Stadiums and arenas worthy of the world’s biggest sports spectacles. Restaurants with inspired cuisine and inspiring patio views. Golf courses that beckon players the year round. Shopping centers as stylish and eclectic as the fashions they house.

This is Greater Phoenix — Arizona’s urban heart and America’s sunniest metropolis.


THINGS TO DO

Perpetual sunshine. Sonoran Desert scenery. Four million people. It’s a combination that sets Greater Phoenix apart from every other major metropolis in the United States. It also means you can do things here you couldn’t dream of doing in other vacation destinations.

Greater Phoenix’s landscape is covered with mountain parks, including one that’s 20 times bigger than Central Park and crisscrossed with 50 miles of trails. And never far away on the horizon is Phoenix’s most famous natural landmark: Camelback Mountain. Its red-rock profile challenges dayhikers and provides the backdrop for some of America’s most beautiful resorts.

Want a little “wild” with your West? Then mosey into a friendly saloon in Cave Creek or chase the legend of the Lost Dutchman in the Superstition Mountains. Or maybe you’d rather gawk at the world’s lushest desert from a Jeep, horse or hot-air balloon. If so, a guide awaits who’s full of facts and stories.

When the sun gives way to the stars, don’t be surprised if the desert vibe entices you into a comfort zone you didn’t knew existed. Dress your best for the seen-and-be-seen nightlife of Scottsdale, hang with the college crowd in Tempe or stroll the country’s largest art walk in downtown Phoenix.
