    Known for its warm climate and beautiful landscapes, it’s no wonder the state capital of Arizona rests in the metropolitan area known as the Valley of the Sun. Phoenix is a fascinating tourist and attraction location. Hospitality is in high gear here, where sprawling resorts and tasteful restaurants nestle against the backdrop of the Sonoran Desert. From luxury, to golf, to spa, to dude ranch resorts – Phoenix has it all. Major League Baseball holds Spring Training at stadiums across the city every year, drawing droves of fans. The Grand Canyon, towns of Sedona and Tucson, plus plenty of exciting casinos, are all not too far away.
