About Phoenix Area
Valley of the Sun
The greater Phoenix Metropolitan area is the capital of Arizona, and the sixth most populous city in the United States.
With scant rainfall and lots of sunshine, Phoenix is a popular destination for people who enjoy the desert climate. The warm winters allow for year-round outdoor activities like hiking and biking.
The cultural scene of the Phoenix area is lively, with a number of venues for concerts, sports, theater, and the arts. Local museums have some of the most extensive collections of historic Navajo and Hopi artworks.
