Warm and sunny year-round, Phoenix is a gorgeous seasonal escape for millions of travelers every year. However, for those lucky enough to call Phoenix home, they know that it has a lot more to offer than an escape from the brisk temperatures.
The beauty offered by the Valley of the Sun is unmatched whilst high-end spas, resorts, and a golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus himself await the area’s residents. At night, the city awakens with a different tone as the vibrant clubs turn things up. Those who favor natural beauty will also love the area for the Desert Botanical Garden, the endless cacti, and the native plants that bloom all year.
East Phoenix is definitely one of the most popular areas to consider if you’re thinking of moving to this gorgeous metropolis. Also called Camelback East, this is one of the 15 sections that make up the city. Nestled between Camelback Mountain and Piestewa Peak, this is a beautiful place to call home.
The Ahwatukee Foothills are another popular paradise, covering 35 square miles. Ahwatukee lies at the southernmost point of the city, but this urban area is extremely easy to access. Over 80,000 call the area home, but you wouldn’t know it given the spacious roadways, a plentiful number of parks, and other amenities.
Tempe is the place to be if you want to be just a stone’s throw from the heart of the city. Just east of Phoenix, Tempe is the center of the arts and plays host to dances, concerts, and comedians from all over. Tempe Town Lake is a fun recreation spot with paddleboards, kayaks, and other water adventures up for offer.
Each of these villages has something that sets it apart from the others yet, no matter where you choose, you’re unlikely to regret your decision thanks to the convenience afforded by the entire area.
