The capital and largest city in the US state of Arizona, Phoenix is the 13th most populated city in America.

The city has a pleasant and vibrant mix of cultural diversity and this is reflected in the eclectic nature of the city’s bars, restaurants and shopping precincts.

Along with its glorious mountainous skyline and numerous local attractions, this is one of the primary reasons why Phoenix is growing in popularity as a major US tourist destination.

The city’s hot, desert landscape means that the city stays mostly warm throughout the year, but can become almost unbearably hot during midsummer months.

Arriving Phoenix Airport

One of the busiest airports in the US, Phoenix Airport located a short 3 mile journey from the downtown Phoenix, and therefore taxi cabs from the airport to the city centre can be found for between only $6-$10.

Airport processes can be a little on the lengthy side, and security checks in particular tend to be quite time-consuming. Car rental queues can also be a little more prolonged than at other major US international airports.

However, provided that you are prepared for a short wait when you arrive at the airport, the friendly and helpful airport staff will ensure that you are in and out of the airport in the shortest time possible.

The airport has an extensive array of dining and shopping outlets, and although these are a little expensive, visitors often remark that the overall quality and level of service is excellent.

Driving In Phoenix

One of the easier to navigate US cities, driving in Phoenix is mostly a fairly enjoyable experience. While the city once had a reputation for fast and reckless driving, this has almost been eradicated through the placement of many speed cameras on the major highways running through the city.

Public transport systems are a little worn down and can be quite expensive. However, they offer decent availability and reliability and they are a good option if you would rather not drive around downtown Phoenix.

Please note that car crime rates are slightly above the average in Phoenix. However, providing that you stay within the city centre and tourist related areas, you should not encounter a problem.
