Phoenix is the country's fifth largest city and also one of the few cities that is home to teams in all four major professional sports. Phoenix supports a plethora of diverse restaurants in a number of vibrant entertainment districts; although not surprisingly, southwestern cuisine always gets top marks from visitors. Phoenix’s concert halls, stadiums, and arenas also attract a wide selection of top artists and shows to complement our local art and culture. Phoenix is just a short drive from majestic mountains and lakes offering every kind of recreational option imaginable, including skiing (water and snow), boating, fishing, hiking, and camping. Even with all it has to offer, Phoenix still manages to maintain an exceptionally reasonable cost of living. It's no wonder the "Valley of the Sun" is one of the country's most desirable places to live, work, and play.
