For thousands of years, the land of Phoenix (as well as around it) was the home of a Native American culture known as the Hohokam. The area wasn’t settled as the city of Phoenix until 1867 when a Confederate Civil War veteran decided that it was an optimal spot for an agricultural community.
Today, the city is known for its hot and dry climate, due to its desert environment, which makes its agricultural history rather remarkable. The average temperature highs in the city top 100 degrees Fahrenheit for four months of the year (June through September), while three other months (April, May, and October) have average highs of 85 degrees or higher.
Despite these intensely hot temperatures, Phoenix did have its roots in the world of agriculture. Multiple rivers and tributaries bisect the city—features that helped farmers grow cotton, citrus, hay, and other key crops for decades.
Today, manufacturing, technology, and finance are the driving industries in Phoenix, with tourism also playing a vital role in the city’s economy. Software, aircraft components, computer products and other electronics, air conditioning equipment and more constitute some of the city’s biggest exports. Fortune 500 companies based in Phoenix include Avnet, Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold, Republic Services and PetSmart. Wal-Mart also has extensive operations in the area and is Phoenix’s second largest employer after the State of Arizona.
Phoenix is a hub for tourism—both for the state of Arizona and for the western United States. In 2014, the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport was the 11th largest airport in the U.S. for total passengers. The Phoenix area sees some 10 million outside visitors each year. These tourists flock to Phoenix for its warm weather, particularly in the winter when daytime temperatures can still reach the high 60s or low 70s.
The popular Musical Instrument Museum shows off instruments from some 200 different countries, examining how music varies from culture to culture. The museum also hosts instruments that have previously belonged to (and been played by) world-famous musicians, such as John Lennon of the Beatles, Elvis Presley, and Taylor Swift. Another famous museum, the Heard Museum, allows visitors to delve into the area’s deep and rich Native American culture and history.
Phoenix is also located about 220 miles south of the Grand Canyon National Park. Many visitors to Phoenix plan day trips, guided tours or flyover tours of the Grand Canyon. Numerous Grand Canyon day trip companies offer pickups from Phoenix hotels or rentals.
In addition to the numerous natural draws and museum attractions of Phoenix, the area is also home to several sports teams, universities, festivals, and other arts and leisure features. Phoenix is home to three major professional sports organizations: the Phoenix Suns, an NBA team, and the Arizona Diamondbacks, an MLB franchise and the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals (in Glendale, a Phoenix suburb). The Diamondbacks have won the World Series once, in 2001 when they beat the New York Yankees in a thrilling, down-to-the-wire seven-game series. The Phoenix Suns have never won an NBA Championship title, but won the Western Conference and advanced to the finals on two occasions, in 1976 and 2003. The Cardinals were founded in 1898 in Chicago as the Morgan Athletic Club and are the oldest continuously run professional football team in the U.S.
Professional sports teams aren’t the only reason that Phoenix receives attention for athletic events. The University of Phoenix Stadium (actually located in Glendale) is the home of the Fiesta Bowl, one of the six bowl games played annually as part of the College Football Playoffs. The Fiesta Bowl is the newest of the six bowl games, having originated in 1971.
The Phoenix area also plays host to numerous universities and colleges, including the University of Phoenix, the country’s largest for-profit university. The area’s largest university, meanwhile, is Arizona State University, located in Tempe rather than Phoenix. Tempe borders Phoenix and ASU has multiple campuses in Phoenix itself. Arizona State University typically ranks as one of the largest universities in the United States, regarding enrollment. It even topped the list for the 2012/13 school year. For the 2015/16 school year, ASU ranked sixth.
Phoenix’s status as a major city, a major tourist destination, and a major epicenter of college study makes it an attractive touring market for musical artists, Broadway touring companies, and other high-profile entertainment. The area is also home to the Phoenix Symphony, while the cities of Phoenix, Tempe, and Mesa overlap to form a booming rock ‘n’ roll music scene. Over the years, numerous famous bands and artists have hailed from the region, including Jimmy Eat World, Gin Blossoms, The Format, The Meat Puppets, Dierks Bentley, Michelle Branch, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers, and American Idol winner Jordin Sparks. Unsurprisingly, the area is home to several notable music venues, including both larger venues (the Ak-Chin Pavilion) and smaller ones (the Comerica Theatre).
The Phoenix area is also home to a plethora of different festivals, with their focuses ranging from food to beverages to comedy to live music and beyond. A top attraction each year is the Devoured Culinary Classic, an event at the Phoenix Art Museum where local chefs and culinary businesses show off their best dishes, desserts, beers, and wines. The festival offers attendees the opportunity to sample the best foods from local restaurants.
Other festivals in Phoenix or nearby areas include the Great American BBQ & Beer Festival (in Chandler, a major suburb of Phoenix), the Great Arizona Beer Festival (in Mesa), the Beer Olympics (in Tempe), the My Nana’s Best-Tasting Salsa Challenge (at Phoenix’s Steele Indian School Park). Then there’s the Check, Please! Arizona Festival (at Phoenix’s Margaret T. Hance Park) that attracts scores of visitors each year.
Over the years, the list of famous residents of the Phoenix, Arizona area has included the likes of legendary boxer Muhammad Ali. Also, professional baseball player Randy Johnson (who played for the Arizona Diamondbacks from 1999 to 2004, helping the team clinch its sole World Series victory), actress Emma Stone, iconic film director Steven Spielberg, U.S. Senator John McCain and many more.
One of the Phoenix area’s key bits of trivia is that it was the first place ever to sport the famous McDonald’s “Golden Arches.” Though not the first McDonald’s restaurant, the original Phoenix location (on North Central Avenue) was the first franchisee and the original spot of the now iconic symbol.
