What's the weather like in Phoenix?
Phoenix is known as the Valley of the Sun for good reason. From May to September temperatures regularly exceed 100 degrees. Winter brings average lows in the mid-40s and highs in the 60s and low-70s. The climate is generally very dry, with the exception of some short-lived, late-day thunderstorms during the Monsoon season (July-September). This dry climate allows locals and tourists alike to enjoy year-round outdoor recreation, from white-water rafting at Tonto National Forest, to exploring Phoenix' picturesque Desert Botanical Gardens.
Why should I move to Phoenix?
Phoenix is a laid-back city, more reminiscent of a sprawling suburb than a large metropolitan city. Many people value the casualness of this city, especially those with a love for the outdoors. With so many parks nearby (Phoenix South Mountain Park and Estrella Mountain Regional Park just to name a few) there is no shortage of hiking trails, bike paths, and golf courses to explore. Nearby beautiful Flagstaff is a popular hiking destination and summer escape for Phoenix residents. Also notable, the cost of living in Phoenix is affordable and with many companies moving here, job outlooks are projected to grow over the next five years.
Does Phoenix have any famous museums or exhibitions?
Phoenix is home to a wide array of art, cultural, and historical museums and galleries. Located on North Central Avenue, Phoenix Art Museum showcases many excellent permanent, as well as traveling exhibits, showcasing local art, Mexican-influenced art, and a spectacular Ansel Adams exhibit. The Heard Museum, located just north of downtown, offers its 250,000 visitors each year over 130,000 square feet of gallery, classroom, and performance space. The Arizona Science Center on East Washington Street features a planetarium, an Imax theater, and many interactive displays fun for children and adults alike. Other museums in town include the Children's Museum of Phoenix, the Pueblo Grande Museum and Archaeological Park, the Hall of Flame Fire Museum, the Arizona Capital Museum, and the Phoenix Museum of History, amongst others.
Is Phoenix famous for any kind of restaurant or food in particular? What's the local favorite?
With delicious brick oven-fired pizza deemed the "Best Pizza in the Nation" by a New York Times critic in 2004, Pizzeria Bianco is a legendary Phoenix institution. Located on East Adams St, this renowned joint serves up tasty pizza with a chewy, yet crispy crust and only the freshest ingredients and toppings. Try the delectable Wiseguy topped with wood roasted onion, house smoked mozzarella, and fennel sausage, or the Rosa, a unique yet decidedly delicious combination of crushed pistachios, parmesan, rosemary, and red onion. Add to that delicious appetizers like the antipasto and caprese salad, an extensive wine selection, and a famously friendly staff, and its no wonder there is always a line out the door at this Phoenix hotspot. But with a separate building just for a wine bar and waiting area, you won't even mind the wait. And for this pizza, it is well worth it!
Where in Phoenix should I live if I'd like to walk or bike to work and to restaurants and bars from my apartment?
Phoenix is not the most bicycle/pedestrian friendly city, but organizations such as the Phoenix Pedestrian Safety Action Plan are working to improve pedestrian safety and development. That being said, Roosevelt Row, running through the northern edge of downtown from 3rd Ave to 7th Street is a feasible option for those looking to live in Phoenix without a car. This walkable, urban-mixed area is home to many of the city's artists and creative professionals, as well as many small local businesses.
I've got dogs. What are the best places in Phoenix for being outdoors with pets?
Some of the best places for being outdoors with dogs in Phoenix are the city's many dog parks. These include Echo Mountain Off Leash Arena (at Grovers Park), PETsMART Dog Park (at Washington Park), RJ Dog Park (at Pecos Park), Rose Mofford Sports Complex Dog Park, Steele Indian School Dog Park, Tonto National Forest. White Tank Mountain Regional Park and Estrella Mountain Regional Park are also great places to take your dogs, but you might have to keep them on leash. The biggest green area around is Tonto National Forest, which has many hiking trails where you can take your pets.
