Recently, the Census Bureau named Arizona’s Maricopa County, which includes the greater Phoenix metro area, the county with the nation’s highest annual population growth. Home to more than 4 million residents where everyone has a sunny disposition, the Phoenix area also ranks as the sixth-largest city in the United States. Phoenix is a premier destination offering the best of both worlds: a growing and diverse economy and a great place to live with more than 300 sun-filled days a year and an almost endless supply of attractions including:

  • 189 city parks, 33,000 acres of desert preserves, and 200 miles of trails
  • Host to MLB Spring Training and the annual Fiesta Bowl
  • Home of the “Phoenix Open” and 200 golf courses
