It's a world-class sports hub, a sophisticated spa and resort community and a vibrant setting for arts and culture. It's also the gateway to the Grand Canyon, home to present day cowboys and steeped in the fascinating history of the American Southwest. And don't forget its ranking as America's sunniest city. Phoenix has everything you'd expect from America's sixth largest city, and whole lot more you'd never imagine.
Located in the colorful Sonoran desert and bordered by the Phoenix Mountains, the city of 1,488,750 attracts anyone who appreciates clear, sunny days, an average temp of 85 degrees, and some of the most breathtaking and unique scenery you'll ever lay eyes on. Blooming cacti and wildflowers provide pops of color, red sandstone rocks balance atop one another forming precarious towers, and rugged mountains loom in the background.
But Phoenix isn't just another pretty face. It's also a thriving economy that constantly attracts new businesses and workers thanks to a low cost of doing business, strong transportation infrastructure (a light rail system connects metro Phoenix and surrounding suburbs, and Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport is the hub for US Airways), and a young, well-educated workforce (average age of Phoenix residents is 34). Forbes has named Phoenix to its list of Best U.S. Cities for Jobs.
From contemporary to historic homes; from new construction to established communities; or from palatial custom estates to active senior neighborhoods, you'll find something for every budget and lifestyle in the Greater Phoenix area. Outstanding housing options extend to the Phoenix suburbs, where you'll find the college-town vibe of Tempe, the mountain sanctuary of Gold Canyon, and nationally recognized Gilbert - one of CNN Money's Best Places to Live in America.
