Phoenix, the capital of Arizona and the sixth-largest city in America, is a vibrant, thriving metropolis set amidst the stunningly beautiful backdrop of the Sonoran Desert. Also known as the Valley of the Sun, the Phoenix major metropolitan area is the 13th largest metro area in the country, rated by population, and one of its largest cities rated by land area, spanning over 516,000 square miles.
The Phoenix major metropolitan area is divided up into numerous smaller towns and communities, each with its own rich culture and history, making Phoenix one of the most diverse cities in the United States today. Natural beauty meets urban sophistication in this seamless merging of two worlds. With homes ranging from sprawling, ranch-style homes and simple country cottages to massive, luxury mega-mansions and custom homes in private, gated communities, the housing market in Phoenix is just as vibrant and diverse as the people who live there, so everyone has the opportunity to find the perfect home to suit their needs and style.
Culture and history are a big part of the Phoenix communities and that is showcased in the plethora of museums and galleries throughout the city, not least of which is the world-famous Phoenix Art Museum. Phoenix is also home to some of the greatest shopping centers in the country, rich dining featuring cuisine from all across the globe, nature trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding through the desert or over mountains, even including guided tours after dark with night vision goggles. There is entertainment to be found during all hours of the day and night at any number of golf clubs, theaters, resorts, lounges, and nightclubs, and more, as well as festivals, farmers’ markets, and other events all year round, including the annual Arizona Scottish Gathering & Highland Games.
