Phoenix is the anchor of the area known as Valley of the Sun, and the capital and largest city of the state of Arizona. Its population has grown nearly 4% per year in the last 40 years, making it the most populous state capital in the United States.
Phoenix averages over 330 days of sunshine per year, and receives little rain, typical of the Sonoran Desert climate in which it lies. This location is famous for a very diverse flora, including the giant saguaro cactus, prickly pear, Palo Verde trees, various types of palm trees, agaves and the creosote bush. Also due to its climate and beauty, Phoenix has a lot of outdoor attractions, recreational activities and festivals you’ll be able to enjoy all year-round.
Phoenix is one of only 12 cities in the U.S. to have teams from all four major professional sports leagues call it home. The Greater Phoenix area hosts the Cactus League, a spring training league for Major League Baseball. The city also hosts major golf events and marathons.
There are many parks and recreation areas, waterparks, amusement parks, shopping centers and restaurants. From saguaro-studded hillsides to a glittering downtown skyline; from palm-canopied resorts to mural-adorned streetscapes; from steakhouses to Mexican food and cuisines from all over the world: Phoenix is the heart of Arizona.
