A true desert gem, Phoenix is where natural rugged landscapes meet urban sophistication.

The 24 acre Phoenix Convention Center, located in the heart of downtown and just minutes from Sky Harbor International Airport, hosts many national and regional conventions and trade shows every year. Arenas and stadiums have hosted the world's biggest sports events. Stylish and eclectic shopping centers are scattered throughout the greater metropolitan area.

"Active City with Seasonality"
Score 5.0 / 5

Phoenix has something to offer for everyone. The city is easy to navigate as it is laid out in a grid. I have found parking here easier than in most large cities. Do be aware of the heat. May to October can be rather brutal. July and August can have very heavy rain with streets getting flooded very quickly. Spring weather is very pleasant! There are a lot of various festivals, shows, and event that go on all year, so check on the web when making your plans. Book hotels early as they do fill up very quickly.

"Great Roadways"
Score 4.0 / 5

We loved how well the traffic flowed throughout the city. The roads are excellent, signage is good and the major routes allow one to move quickly to a destination.I am always amazed at the artistic beauty of the designs in the retaining walls and on the pedestrian overhead walkways. So beautiful.

"Traffic and unattractive scenery."
Score 5.0 / 5

The city of Phoenix is flat, brown, and the highways are totally jammed; so didn't really like Phoenix.
