The New West melds seamlessly with the Old West in Phoenix. Unfettered sunsets and starry skies are still the stuff of romance in this city, where a burgeoning dining and brewery scene and locally-owned boutique shops share a cactus-studded landscape with mountain trails and Native American ruins.
Because Phoenix basks in sunshine more often than any other major metro area in America, exploring the city means spending quality time outdoors. Urban parks provide visitors with an outlet for every grade of outdoor activity—hiking, cycling, mountain biking, climbing—and professional outfitters are happy to show the Sonoran Desert to sightseers from the saddle of a horse, the seat of a Jeep or the basket of a hot-air balloon.
Like the best American cities, Phoenix makes it easy to migrate between high culture and low. Visitors can cocoon themselves within the grounds of a palm-canopied resort by day, then seek out local Mexican food and craft brews by night. In between, visitors can broaden their horizons in downtown’s mural-adorned arts district or trek through rugged desert trails just minutes from the cityscape.
