Quality of life in Greater Phoenix

Quality beyond business

Greater Phoenix residents enjoy a diverse quality of life unparalleled anywhere.

Whether it be the array of options life in 330 days of sunshine brings – desert hiking, golf, outdoor festivals, nearly year-round backyard barbecues and more – or the proximity to the many stunning landscapes of the West, the Phoenix metro area really does boast something for everyone.

Snow skiing just two hours away? Check. Water skiing even closer? Yes. Pine forests, mountain streams and deep, majestic canyons are equally close.

And that doesn't even include the almost countless cultural attractions, such as world-class shopping, teams from all four major professional sports leagues, museums, universities, performance venues, casinos, resorts and more.

Perhaps it's no wonder the Phoenix metro area is growing at four times the national average, according to Census Bureau estimates.
