Smart Snapshot:

The Greater Phoenix metropolitan area is known as The Valley of the Sun. This scenic, cactus-studded Sonoran Desert region is anchored by the city of Phoenix. A quintessential dessert location, its red sandy valley promises warm weather year-round, and it’s rife with cultural attractions.

Despite the heat, Phoenix is a wonderful place for hiking. In fact, it has been recognized by National Geographic as one of America’s best hiking cities. Especially memorable are sunset hikes through the mountains.

The Valley of the Sun also has a thriving artistic element. To get a feel for this side of the destination, stroll through downtown and check out local arts and crafts. An artistic attraction on a grander scale is the Phoenix Art Museum, which houses the largest collection of visual arts in the southwest, with works from all over the world.
