Phoenix & Scottsdale - The Valley of the Sun



Things are different in the desert. The sky is bigger. The stars are brighter. The sunsets stop you in your tracks.  We still have real cowboys and rugged mountains and the kind of cactus most people see only in cartoons.  Projected against this rich backdrop is a panorama of urban sophistication:  resorts and spas that drop jaws and soothe souls.  Stadiums and arenas worthy of the world’s biggest sports spectacles. Restaurants with inspired cuisine and inspiring patio views.  Golf courses that beckon players year round.  Shopping centers as stylish and eclectic as the fashions they house.

This is the Valley of the Sun — Arizona’s urban heart and America’s sunniest metropolis.  With over 350 days of sunshine annually, the Valley presents the perfect opportunity to venture outdoors.  Situated in the heart of the unexpectedly lush Sonoran Desert, the opportunities for adventure are endless.  Explore the area’s rugged mountain parks, climb its iconic rocks, soar above the desert landscape, and float down the scenic rivers.  Whatever your passion, you’ll find it here!
