Why Phoenix, Arizona is so Easy to Love

Many people do not think of Phoenix, Arizona when they think of cities that they love. Most of the time when people are asked what cities they enjoy the most they answer large cities like New York City, Los Angeles, or Chicago. However, Phoenix, Arizona is an oasis of community, culture, and everything that makes a city great.

Often the fact that Phoenix is the capital of Arizona often turns people off. They believe it will be overly crowded, too political, or not a great area to live. However, Phoenix being the capital has not made any change on the life of citizens. If anything, it encourages more tourism which in effect allows for more work and a better economy. The fact that Phoenix is the capital brings in retailers and restaurants that most towns and cities would not have based on population alone. This allows citizens a much better quality of life.

Phoenix also does not have the terrible winter weather that other states have. Yes, it does get a little hot in the summer, but during the winter Phoenix has mild temperatures which still allow residents to spend quality time outdoors. For people who like to be outside rather than cooped up in doors trying to hide from snow storms, then Phoenix is definitely a good place. With 330 days a year of sunlight, Phoenix definitely is a great place for those who love the outdoors.

Phoenix has a very eclectic selection of dining as well. Something that many people do not realize about Phoenix is that few people went to McDonald’s when they say they got something at the Drive thru. Phoenix has amazing Drive Thrus that aren’t fast food chains. You can get a variety of breakfast offerings, Mexican, Thai, and Greek. Amazingly you can eat local and not have to leave your car. Phoenix also has some of the best coffee shops in the country. On almost every corner there is a funky coffee shop that can offer you the best cup of joe in the world.

Phoenix has the best public transportation in the country. With the addition of the light rail Phoenix went from too much traffic and not enough public transportation to having the cleanest and most affordable public transportation in the country.  The light rail gives the best views of the city while you safely travel from destination to destination. This is definitely a plus considering the constant rising of gas prices. The light rail has also enabled night life to thrive in Phoenix. You can chose from dancing clubs, jazz bars, cigar bars, and many others. Most of these establishments are close to the light rail so you can easily have a night out on the town and still make it home safely.

Phoenix also offers citizens a stable economy. There are many jobs available in Phoenix due to the fact there are multiple Fortune 500 companies located in the area. This enables citizens to always be able to find employment. The housing market also has need had a steady increase as it has throughout the rest of the country. Housing is easily affordable and offers the citizens of Phoenix an awesome opportunity to be home owners rather than renting.

Phoenix also offers many shows and attractions to both tourists and locals. You can see a game at Chase Field, visit the ballet, symphony, or theater. There are always multiple offerings of shows that fit everyone’s needs. In addition to these attractions are a multitude of museums. The Arizona Science Center is one of the most amazing ways to spend time in Phoenix. Many people do not visit this center because they believe it is centered around children, however, that is incorrect. Adults can actually watch a live brain surgery in action. It is an amazing place to visit and it is very unique to Phoenix.

Phoenix also offers a variety of wildlife and nature. The Grand Canyon is only 230 miles away. People don’t realize the majestic size of the Grand Canyon and having it so close is awesome.  If you do not want to travel that far to view some amazing scenery then all you have to do is go outside the city limits and see an amazing mountain range. You can also visit the amazing Botanical Gardens which has a massive selection of flora and fauna, including a butterfly tent that is amazing. The Camelback Mountains offer views of the city which are absolutely incredible

Phoenix is not all about being outdoors however. In Phoenix you will find amazing shopping and spas. Frances Vintage offers amazing vintage shopping that you can get lost in. The Desert Sky Mall offers amazing shopping and wonderful playgrounds for children. Kierland Commons offers a vast amount of outdoor shopping that explodes into a wonderful bar scene at night. If you feel like you need even more luxurious shopping then head over to Biltmore Fashion Park. Here you will find the high end retailers, shaded walkways, and extravagant dining. If you need some quiet time with a book visit the library in downtown. There you will find a four story library that has offerings for everyone.  Burton Barr not only has a massive collection of books, but it is architecturally beautiful. Definitely a place to go if you want to find some amazing reads.

So maybe Phoenix does not have the huge subway system of New York City or the lavish Millennium Park like Chicago, but Phoenix does have something that most cities do not. That is the nature and the community life that so many cities are lacking. The city is not based on commerce and running from one social event to the next. The city is based on living a happy life that you make your own. Phoenix relies on making citizens happy naturally rather than offering the false influences of most modern cities. This makes Phoenix a city that is lovable and perfect for anyone.

🙂
