    "Where it is always warm" — That is a false statement. Today (February 19, 2019), it is 35 F. Be warned. Phoenix winters are cold. The temperature rarely gets above 70 F during the Winter. If you want warm weather in the Winter, you need to visit Florida. In Lakeland, Florida, for example, it is 71 F right now. I do look forward to the triple digit temperature season (May through October), which is my favorite time of year.

    I’ve lived in Phoenix most of my life. There’s more to do but most publiclty is lazy and just says shopping and restaurants. Then go to Sedona or something. For the physically active, hiking can be beautiful in many spots, horseback riding at South Mountain, bike riding around Tempe Mill Ave, balloon rides, theater. But sadly not the most interesting city by itself as a vacation spot. If going to the Grand Canton in the winter, it’s worth spending a few days. If you want night clubs, definitely a big selection. I’m over drinking but if that’s your thing it may sway your decision.

    They could have listed about 50,000 other things to do in Phoenix and the Valley of the Sun. There is a reason over 3 million people live here. It's a great place to live, with so much to see and do.

    Yeah… we have cool museums and even a road named after Frank Lloyd Wright. But that's not all; you missed everything great about Phoenix. Let the locals know you're foreign to the city (we actually enjoy the company of tourists,) some of the best might be just under your feet. I mean, literally underground lol
