The Phoenix metro area, now America’s 5th largest city, offers affordable housing and a relaxed, informal southwestern lifestyle. Diversity abounds. Greater Phoenix has an abundance of golf courses, parks, public swimming pools and bike paths. For the sports fans Phoenix is home to the NBA’s Phoenix Suns, NFL’s Arizona Cardinals; Major League Baseball’s Arizona Diamondbacks and the NHL’s Phoenix Coyotes. Across the state, more than 11 million acres of national forest lands provide a varied playground for those who enjoy skiing, horseback riding, hunting, fishing, boating, hiking or camping. For the more adventurous, there’s white water rafting on the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon! For city dwellers, the valley boasts exceptional shopping and retail establishments, restaurants and night life. The valley is also rapidly gaining prominence as a Mecca for the arts. Phoenix possesses world class museums, a ballet, symphony orchestra and several theater companies.
