There's no arguing that Phoenix seems to have cornered the market on sunshine. With near-perfect 85-degree days as the norm, its comfortable climate makes it a favorite destination. And, as the nation's fifth-largest city and rapidly growing, it's also a hot place to live - literally.
Arizona is renowned for its spectacular scenery, and you will certainly see a lot of it in the greater Phoenix area. Many Grand Canyon tours are available from Phoenix, often including extras like a West Rim Adventure and Skywalk or a Colorado River Float. See the greater Arizona area on a Sedona Red Rock Adventure or Tucson Day Tour.
Adventurous types will love a Monument Valley Air and Jeep Tour or Hummer Night Tour in the Sonoran Desert. See the sights in a unique mode of transportation on a Phoenix Hot Air Balloon Ride or U-Drive Desert Car Tour in the Sonoran Desert, or glimpse into Arizona's past on a 4-Day "Native American Cultures of the Southwest" tour.
Phoenix's identity lies heavily on its arid climate and Southwest-meets-modern style, but there's no one type of person who is drawn here. Visitors of all kinds revel in its rich past and the vast number of vacation-friendly distractions. Go for a hike, play a game of golf, or choose from any number of activities in the city referred to as the Valley of the Sun.
