Greater Phoenix is the perfect setting for family vacations or weekend getaways attracting 16 million visitors each year. America’s fifth-largest city still has cowboys and red-rock buttes and iconic towering cactus. With an elevation is 1,117 feet, Phoenix is the heart of the Sonoran Desert and the gateway to the Grand Canyon, and its culture carries the spirit of the Puebloans, ranchers, miners and visionaries that came before.
Greater Phoenix is located in the Sonoran Desert, which is one of the wettest and greenest deserts in North America yet basks in sunshine more often than any other major metropolitan area in the U.S. The city’s horizon is defined by three distinct mountains: South Mountain, Camelback Mountain and Piestewa Peak. Phoenix is also home to the largest municipal park in North America–South Mountain Park and Preserve with more than 16,500 acres and 50 miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails.
Among the cultural hot spots in Phoenix are the Heard Museum (Native American), Desert Botanical Garden–the world's largest collection of desert plants, Taliesin West–home of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, the Phoenix Art Museum–the Southwest's largest art museum, the Fleischer Museum, the Arizona Science Center, the Hall of Flame featuring the world's largest collection of fire-fighting equipment, Pueblo Grande Museum and Cultural Park and the Musical Instrument Museum.
Dependable sunshine and warm temperatures make outdoor activities a way of life in Phoenix. Golf, tennis, hiking, cycling, mountain biking and rock climbing are popular Phoenix activities. Jeep, Hummer or horseback riding is a great way to see the Sonoran Desert. Thrill seekers can soar above the desert plateau in a glider, sailplane or hot-air balloon. Visitors also can choose from water skiing, sailing, fishing and tubing in the region’s lakes and rivers.
Greater Phoenix’s top attractions are South Mountain Park and Preserve, Tempe Town Lake, Camelback Mountain and First Friday Art Walks in downtown Phoenix. Other noteworthy attractions include the Heard Museum, Desert Botanical Garden, Heritage and Science Park, the Musical Instrument Museum, and Phoenix Zoo. Phoenix is also the gateway to the Grand Canyon; the drive to America’s greatest natural wonder takes 3½ hours.

Many resorts and spas infused with Native American tradition, desert charm and world class golf.

Many of those courses were designed by the greats, and most don’t have merely one signature hole, but many.
