FUN THINGS TO DO WHILE IN 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. Come to Greater Phoenix and you’ll understand, too.
Phoenix is America’s sixth-largest city and 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 and 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.
The beautiful weather in Phoenix creates ample opportunity to enjoy a variety of attractions year round.
