Arizona's capital city, Phoenix, has risen from
the mythical ashes of an ancient agricultural Indian village to
become a sprawling modern metropolis, the sixth largest city in the
USA. Its rapid urban growth has filled what is known as the 'Valley
of the Sun', encompassing the neighbouring towns of Scottsdale,
Mesa and Tempe as suburbs and is America's fastest-growing urban
centre, claiming to have more 5-star hotels than any other city in
the USA. With luxurious resorts and spas, glitzy shopping plazas,
upmarket restaurants and superb golf courses, together with over
300 days of sunshine a year, the area has become a popular winter
getaway for the rest of the country.
