Move yourself outside. If year-round sun, minimal rain and unlimited outdoor activities are your thing, you are relocating to the right place. Phoenix has more than 180 city parks and over 33,000 acres of desert preserves. Commonly called the “Valley of the Sun” because it sees more sunny days (over 300) than any other metropolitan city in the country.
We shovel sunshine. Yes, it does get hot during the summer months, at times over 110°. However, it is a dry heat and we're the envy of the north during the spring and winter seasons when temps average in the 70°s.
There's nothing like the desert in bloom. Discover nature's beauty on the many hiking trails surrounding Phoenix. You'll find a wide variety of trails perfect for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts at any skill level.
Pleasing your palate in the city or suburbs won’t be a problem with the wide range of restaurants. The eclectic dining scene truly offers something for everyone. Pro Tip: The seafood dishes in the "The Valley" rival any coastal town.
About 95% of Phoenix's water comes from lakes and rivers and the remaining water comes from groundwater wells. Staying hydrated to avoid dehydration is a number one safety consideration out in the Phoenix desert sun.
Walking in Phoenix is a healthy activity, but in most cases, you will need a car. Thanks to a well-planned infrastructure, newer road system, and HOV lanes, driving is pretty convenient - even during rush hour. Please visit ADOT for laws, car registration and more. https://azdot.gov/
During the driest months of the year, June - September, there can be major dust storms called “haboobs.” Getting their name from the Arabic word for “blown,” haboobs are giant (and dangerous) walls of dust created from the high winds of a collapsing thunderstorm. These storms move quickly and typically last for a couple hours. Please take shelter and listen to local news direction if forecasted.
