Phoenix Travel Tips
Newcomers to Phoenix may well believe that their goose is cooked. Let there be no mistake, Phoenix is a place in the sun. Reveling in more than 300 days of sunshine a year, the city is searing hot in summer but perfect in winter and spring, a haven for "snow birds" seeking refuge from chilly northern climes.
Although it's the largest city in the southwest, Phoenix's greatest attraction is the land that surrounds it: a vast expanse of untamed desert. It's a modern city, with an active arts scene, major museums, excellent restaurants, nonstop nightlife and superlative shopping. And as the capital of Arizona, the Grand Canyon state, it's the launching pad of choice for Grand Canyon adventures.
