As America’s fifth largest city, Phoenix is all grown-up with cultural attractions and world-class restaurants. Yet it still treasures touches of the wild west and ancient civilizations. Ride with cowboys into the brilliantly colorful sunsets that exist nowhere else.

Phoenix is both cosmopolitan and rustic. Urban and rural. City lights, bright stars and wide-open places. Real ghost towns. Cowboy saloons. Five major sports teams. Upscale dining. Rivaled shopping. A world of romance, tranquility, things to do, and incredible views.

The Greater Phoenix and Scottsdale area features an abundance of attractions, points of interest and things to see and do. Included are several boating lakes, zoos, urban hiking trails, museums, ghost town amusement parks and ancient Indian Ruins.
