The Valley of the Sun.

Phoenix was given its name after the mythical bird that rises to new life out of its own ashes. The name was fitting when it was coined and is still fitting today. Thousands of years ago the Hohokam Indians dug irrigation canals throughout the area that is today Phoenix. The canals where abandoned for many years then cleaned up, expanded, and put back to use in the mid 1800s. The rest is history. Today, Phoenix is a desert oasis complete with palm trees, citrus, and many other types of greenery. Of course, you'll still find native cacti on every street.

Phoenix boasts near perfect weather 9 months of the year. During the summer, misters are used to cool off outdoor patios and shopping areas. Phoenix’s premier
golf courses and luxury resorts are attracting more and more vacationers every year. The many mountain preserves around Phoenix including Camelback, Papago, and South Mountain can be admired from almost anywhere in the city. These preserves are popular attractions for joggers, bikers, and dog walkers a like

The city is also home to such rare gems as the Heard Museum and the Desert Botanical Gardens. In addition, the neighboring city of Scottsdale has some of the best shopping in the nation along with many fine restaurants. You definitely will not run out of things to do while in Phoenix Arizona. So go ahead and book your dream vacation.
