|Phoenix, in Maricopa County, is the thriving
capital of Arizona. There are countless suburbs, sprawling shopping
centers and rambling ranch-style homes retain a Western
look, while high-rise office buildings stand as gleaming
symbols of Eastern influence. Spanish Colonial and Native
American pueblo architecture add color and variety.
Phoenix is the hub that binds together some important
nearby cities and communities, which play a large
role in Arizona's impressive growth rate.
Although surrounded by sun-drenched desert sands, Phoenix also is close to sparkling lakes and rivers. The Valley of the Sun is an area of vast diversity, with its fertile flat lands and craggy mountain peaks. People flock to the area for the unique quality of life and panoramic views, the hospitable climate, and to be part of the thriving business environment.
Private industry has a dynamic presence in Phoenix, home to manufacturing giants like Honeywell, Motorola, Allied Signal and Intel.
Phoenix displays enthusiasm and pride in the many athletic and cultural activities it supports. The arts are pursued at excellent theaters, numerous museums and lectures at colleges and universities. The Civic Plaza downtown houses a state of-the-art convention center and a symphony hall. Greyhound races, horse races, golf tournaments and rodeos add to the city's entertainment scene. It is a business and tourism center with a wealth of restaurants and theaters, a city with more than 140 golf courses and the home of the NBA's Phoenix Suns, the NHL's Phoenix Coyotes, and in the spring of 1998, the new Arizona Diamondbacks baseball team.
Demand for new homes is high, due in large part to the current relocation boom. Once believed to be geographically limited by the mountains, homes can be found today on the mountainsides or strategically nestled along the foothills.
