Phoenix, Arizona

Surrounded by the scenic landscape of the Sonoran Desert, Phoenix provides the excitement of the Old West within a thriving metropolitan area brimming with cultural activity. More than three dozen luxurious resorts are scattered throughout the Valley, many of which provide spectacular spas that offer special treatments native to Arizona.

Recognized worldwide for its broad range of outdoor recreational opportunities such as golf, biking and hiking, Greater Phoenix provides more than 325 days of sunshine annually. More than 200 picturesque golf courses helped earn Greater Phoenix the title of "Golf Capital of the World" from the National Golf Foundation. For adventurers, the options are limitless; including Jeep tours, hot-air balloon rides above spectacular scenery, horseback riding and rock climbing.

When it's time for fun and relaxation, get out and see a show, symphony or ballgame in Downtown, Copper Square, visit museums filled with Native American art and history, and enjoy incredible culinary delights. As one of only eight US cities to field teams in all four major professional sports, Greater Phoenix is a sports haven. At the same time, the Valley is truly a shopper's paradise with fabulous malls, unique boutiques, art galleries, antique shops and outlet centers.

With so many ways to keep busy, or simply lounge out and do nothing at all, it's easy to see why visitors find themselves completely satisfied in Greater Phoenix.
