An Economic Force

Of course, it's not just baseball though. Surrounded by the scenic landscape of the Sonoran Desert, the Greater Phoenix region's neighboring cities provide the excitement of the old west within a thriving metropolitan area brimming with cultural and outdoor treasures.

Recognized worldwide for its broad range of outdoor recreational opportunities such as golf, boating and hiking, Greater Phoenix provides more than 300 days of sunshine each year. This is the perfect place to enjoy more than 200 picturesque golf courses and discover the adventurer in you. The options include guided tours, hot air balloon rides, horseback riding, rock climbing and so much more.

When it's time for fun and relaxation, get out and see a show, symphony or ballet. Visit museums filled with Native American art and history and enjoy incredible culinary delights. Plus, as one the few U.S. metropolitan markets to field teams in all four major professional sports, the Greater Phoenix region is a sports haven even beyond spring training baseball. Additionally, a shopper's paradise can be explored with fabulous malls, unique boutiques, art galleries, antique shops and outlet centers. And don't forget dozens of luxurious resorts are scattered throughout the valley, many of which provide spectacular spas that offer special treatments native to Arizona.

With so many ways to watch sports, be active or simply relax, it's easy to understand why visitors find themselves treasuring their time in Greater Phoenix.
