Phoenix: Valley of the Sun

Phoenix is the capital and most populous city of Arizona. It also serves as the anchor of the Phoenix Metro Area, which is commonly referred to as the “Valley of the Sun.” Phoenix is noted for its high-end spa resorts, sprawling golf courses, and vibrant nightclubs. Phoenix is also an excellent place for nature enthusiasts to call home, as the city is located just a few miles from Tonto National Forest and Phoenix Sonoran Preserve – both of which are home to picturesque landscapes filled with cacti and other native plants and animal wildlife. Plus, Downtown Phoenix offers residents no shortage of hip eateries, bars, shopping districts, and entertainment venues—all amongst scenic views of the Salt River and Phoenix Mountains. With so much to do and see, it's little wonder why residents love living in Phoenix!
