Phoenix is a great place to start exploring the natural beauty of the Sonoran Desert. Phoenix is the capital of Arizona and is located east of Los Angeles, California. Arizona State University adds a youthful atmosphere to the city, with an enrollment of more than seventy thousand students, making it the largest public university in the United States. The city also has a large Hispanic population and is known for great Mexican food!

There are few hostels in Phoenix, so don’t just assume you’ll be able to find a place to stay. Make sure you contact a hostel in Phoenix before you arrive. Things to do are spread out over a large metropolitan area, so if you’re not driving, the Valley Metro provides bus service throughout Phoenix. You can explore the trails on foot or on horseback. There are gorgeous hiking trails at Camelback Mountain, the pueblo ruins at Pueblo Grande, and Phoenix Mountain Preserve. Several stables provide opportunities for horseback riding. For something different, you can take a hot-air balloon ride over the city. Phoenix is also a popular place to begin a Grand Canyon tour.

Like in Las Vegas, during the summer season, you can enjoy a poolside party at local bars and hotels. The best nightlife area is downtown in neighboring Scottsdale, which has been compared to South Beach, Florida. There you’ll find posh cocktail lounges and lavish nightclubs filled with hip young crowds. The Downtown Trolley can take you around the area. Just make sure you don’t get dehydrated on your way back from partying, because the temperatures in the area are often over a hundred degrees.

Phoenix is looking way better from last, the only downturn I noticed is when I looked at an almanac it said its population grew by more than a million! But they added a light rail kind of like trolleys in San Francisco, and I'm liking what's happening.


The best I can say about Phoenix is that I left.


Phoenix is different but good!

Phoenix is a craphole. There are homeless people everywhere you turn and the bus system is bad!


Phoenix area is a place where there is lots to see and to do. The bus system is not so great but it brings you everywhere you need to go -- you only have to have time because they take forever.


If you're coming to Phoenix, try to be here during the first Friday of the month. There is an "art walk" where all the galleries downtown open for free and you can drink booze in the street. There is also usually lots of cool live music going on.


Phoenix is great for those who like sunshine. People are friendly, and the food is great.
