WHY YOU’LL LOVE ITThings are different in the desert. The sky is bigger. The stars are brighter. The sunsets stop you in your tracks.

Desert character. It’s a feeling that can’t be conjured, landscaped or kindled with twinkling bulbs. Spend a few days in Phoenix and you’ll understand. America’s sixth-largest city still has real cowboys and rugged mountains and the kind of cactus most people see only in cartoons. Phoenix is the heart of the Sonoran Desert and 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. Emerald-green golf courses that beckon players the year round. Shopping centers as stylish and eclectic as the fashions they house.

Dependable sunshine and warm temperatures make outdoor activities a way of life in Phoenix. Horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing are popular Phoenix activities for visitors and locals alike. Thrill seekers can soar above the desert plateau in a glider, sailplane or hot-air balloon. You can also choose from water skiing, sailing, fishing and tubing in the region’s lakes and rivers.

Noteworthy attractions include South Mountain Park, encompassing more than 16,000 acres, the Heard Museum, featuring one of the nation’s largest collections of traditional and contemporary Native American art, and the Desert Botanical Garden with more than 50,000 desert plants.

Phoenix and its neighboring communities are also home to more than 200 golf courses. Some courses occupy desert canyons where civilization feels a world away, while others are part of opulent resorts where golfers can indulge themselves with a post-round spa treatment.

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