Phoenix Apartments for Rent
Is there a bit of cowboy in you seeking big sky and bright stars? Want to see a sunset like you’ve never seen before? Maybe it’s time to rent an apartment in Phoenix, Arizona, America’s sunniest metropolis, nicknamed “the valley of the sun.”
For those cramped by urban areas, this city offers lots of room to stretch. Phoenix, the capital of Arizona, is one of the largest cities by land area in the US. Phoenix offers real cowboys, rugged mountains and saguaro (rhymes with “tomorrow”) cacti. Explore the red rocks and desert arroyos of Echo Canyon. Camelback Mountain, the most iconic outline on the horizon, is not to be missed. South Mountain Park and Preserve is the largest municipal park in the United States, with 50 miles of mountain trails.
Phoenix may be the gateway to the Grand Canyon, but don’t think mule teams and covered wagons. A vibrant cultural community exists in Phoenix, frequenting the Desert Botanical Garden, the Heard Museum and the contemporary Phoenix Art Museum and SMOCA. Nightlife is alive and well, especially in areas such as Central Phoenix, where locals meet up after work.
Like sports? Phoenix is home to the 2001 World Champion Arizona Diamondbacks, NFL Football, NBA Basketball, NHL Hockey and NASCAR. The Fiesta Bowl is played here every January, kicked off by a parade and block party on New Year’s Eve in Tempe, home of Arizona State University.
Great shopping is available to most areas within a 15-minute drive. Kierland in Scottsdale and the Biltmore Fashion Mall in Phoenix are two popular malls.
Phoenix is located in the Sonoran Desert, where it gets very hot. But the sun is almost always shining and the sky almost always blue, and residents are within only a two-hour drive of the mountains where it’s at least 20 degrees cooler. For those who love Phoenix, every day is like being on vacation.
