Popular as a destination for those who desire summer weather year-round, Phoenix has all the choice and luxury of a large city in the unique desert scenery of the Southwest. Spectacular rock formations and plant life of surprising variety fill large city parks like Papago Park and Camelback Mountain, making them popular with sightseers, hikers and rock climbers. Lush golf courses abound with the popular Estrella Mountain and the upscale Troon North just two of the many courses in the area. During the peak summer heat, the art galleries in Old Town Scottsdale, the Heard Museum’s collection of Native American art and the town’s many pro sports teams provide cooler indoor entertainment alternatives.
