Arts, Culture and Sun, Sun, Sun
If you’re looking for big city living with as much sun as you can handle, look no further than Phoenix, Arizona. The aptly named “Valley of the Sun” boasts 300 days of sunshine per year, which is the most sunlight of any major city on earth.
All this sun is perhaps why people flock to Phoenix, which is also the sixth most populous city in the United States. Whether you’re here for the climate, the culture or the cuisine, Phoenix has plenty to offer any individual, couple or family.
All About the Arts
Phoenix is the birthplace of some of the biggest names in show business, literature and the arts. Individuals like Stephen Spielberg, Emma Stone, DMX, Jordin Sparks and Stephanie Meyer all once called Phoenix home.
It’s no wonder Phoenix seems to have more than its average share of hometown heroes. The city has a bustling arts scene with plenty of museums, concerts and shows to see on any given night. Hit up Roosevelt’s Row on the first Friday of every month to see unique arts displays or take the kids to the Musical Instrument Museum to see, hear or even play instruments that come from every part of the world.
And don’t forget to visit the Heard Museum, where the culture, history and traditions of over 22 regional American Indian tribes are detailed and celebrated.
Phoenix boasts a beautiful landscape for any outdoors folk who want to visit places like Camelback Mountain. But if you’d prefer to watch people move, Phoenix is home to four professional sports teams. And, like the arts scene, the city boasts some truly memorable sports alumni, like Muhammed Ali.
Catch the Cardinals in the fall, the Suns in the spring, the Diamondbacks in the summer and the Coyotes in the winter. Or see any number of college bowl games, NASCAR events or even Cactus League Spring Training.
Great Jobs, Great Education
Phoenix boasts a diverse array of job opportunities in a number of fields. The city is home to four Fortune 500 companies, as well as a campus for Intel. The healthcare system (including the Mayo Clinic), is one of the largest employers in the city, and there are plenty of retail, administrative and trade openings, as well. Plus, with a great public transit system downtown, it’s easy to get to and from home.
These opportunities are why there are also plenty of options for education throughout the city. Whether you go public, private or charter for your family, you can rest assured your kids will be getting the kind of education you hope for.
