Located in the beautiful Sonoran Desert, Phoenix is America’s sixth-largest city and the center of a diverse metropolitan area known as the Valley of the Sun. Every year, millions of visitors flock to Arizona to bask in its warm, dry climate and enjoy the natural beauty of the Grand Canyon, Sedona and Monument Valley. Whether it’s a spa day at an iconic resort, a round of golf on a championship course, or a hike on urban mountain trails, there’s something for everyone in Phoenix.
Endless outdoor adventure, world-class resorts, spas and golf, unparalleled shopping, three wine trails, 22 national parks and monuments, a burgeoning culinary scene and Old West and American Indian culture and are just the beginning of all the things you can see, do and experience in Arizona.
Tempe, a vibrant college town in the heart of Metropolitan Phoenix, exudes its own personality, separate and apart from its neighboring cities. Here you’ll find a downtown that’s active day and night, locally-owned eateries and microbreweries, arts and cultural events, the largest college campus in the U.S. and plenty of opportunities to bask in the sunshine on a bike, hiking trail or stand-up paddleboard.
Take a break from the everyday and experience the effortless revitalization you’ll find only in Scottsdale. The remarkable clarity of our desert light, the exotic cactus blossoms and the warm smiles of our people create a stirring beauty that leaves you inspired. Come get away, and see what blooms in the desert.
