Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Tempe Travel Guide
Plan Your Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Tempe Vacation
The Valley of the Sun, otherwise known as metro Phoenix (i.e., Phoenix and all its suburbs, including Tempe and Scottsdale), is named for its 325-plus days of sunshine each year. Although many come to Phoenix for the golf and the weather, the Valley has much to offer by way of shopping, outdoor activities, and nightlife. The best of the latter is in Scottsdale and the East Valley with their hip dance clubs, old-time saloons, and upscale wine bars.
The Valley of the Sun now offers locals and visitors some of the country's best choices when it comes to funky, high-fashion accommodations.
