Just like the legendary bird the city is named after, Phoenix is on fire! One of the year-round sun cities with warm temperatures, no wonder that it has a metropolitan area known as the Valley of the Sun. You can indulge yourself at the high-end spa resorts or shop at Scottsdale, but actually, the beautiful nature of the city is not one to miss. The unique Desert Botanical Garden displays cacti and numerous native plants. Hiking at South Mountain Park and Camelback Mountain will make fulfilling that 10.000 steps a day a breeze.
