Set within the Valley of the Sun, Phoenix is the heart and soul of the American Southwest. The tale of Phoenix is one of extremes. A bustling city, the fifth largest in the country in fact, is set against the harsh beauty of the Sonoran desert. Long-lived and stately, the Grand Saguaros cacti that dot the arid desert gradually give way to the bright lights of a cosmopolitan cityscape. Here nature blends perfectly with big city fun. Recognizing its natural riches, Phoenix has set aside 41,000 acres, more land for parks and preserves than any other major city in the nation. 200 miles of desert trekking are spread among 88 trails throughout the city, including trails in the South Mountain Park & Preserve, iconic Camelback Mountain, and the picturesque Piestewa Peak among many others. And of course, it’s considered to be the ‘Gateway to the Grand Canyon’, at just a little more than three hours due south of the park. Big city offerings are abundantly apparent with the area’s ample theaters, shopping, dining, and museums. Immerse yourself in the storied Native American culture at the Heard Museum, where 22 individual tribes converge to celebrate their traditions and culture. Heritage Square offers visitors both the Pizzeria Bianco (best pizza in the nation) and Nobuo at Teeter House, both winners of the prestigious James Beard Award winners. Bask in the warmth of the Southwest in sun filled Phoenix.
