Phoenix, Arizona is the "Valley Of The Sun" for obvious reasons. Phoenix averages zero inches of snowfall each year compared to 25 inches the average U.S. city receives. Phoenix boasts 300 days of sunshine per year, making it the 4th sunniest place in the United States. Phoenix is currently the 6th largest city in the United States with predictions of 4th place by 2020. Why are so many people moving to Phoenix? Because 6 months out of the year, the temperatures are ideal for any outdoor activities. Along with ideal temperatures add all the amazing things Phoenix offers its residents such as the Phoenix Suns at US Airways arena. The entire downtown district buzzes with excitement from Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field, along with the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale and the Phoenix Coyotes. The downtown district also hosts outdoor concerts and events during the holidays along with housing some of the city's best restaurants. If you're in the mood for some old cowboy flare, head over to Old Town Scottsdale and take a walk through blocks of eclectic shops full of southwestern attire and art.


While the rest of the nation shivers from the winter cold, Phoenix residents are out hiking and biking in 70° temperatures. Phoenix also has multiple lakes nearby such as Lake Pleasant, Bartlett Lake, Roosevelt Lake, and our favorite, Canyon Lake. Spend time winding through the huge, steep cliffs of Canyon Lake (which are reminiscent of Lake Powell) and catch some bass or rent a couple of wave-runners! Phoenix lakes are large enough to operate high horsepower boats yet are enjoyable for families as well.
