West Valley

The Phoenix area’s West Valley is primarily made up of the cities of Glendale, Avondale, Arrowhead and Peoria. The vast horizons allow for large sporting and event venues, including the Glendale’s University of Phoenix Stadium, home of the Arizona Cardinals, and Gila River Arena, home of the Arizona Coyotes.

North Valley

The northern Valley of the Sun takes you back to the Western roots of Arizona. Just past the north Phoenix and Scottsdale areas, the small, rugged towns of Cave Creek and Carefree are a cozy welcome to locals and visitors alike. The brilliant mountain scenes removed from the city are a sight to see, while these areas have some of the Valley’s best dining, hiking and outdoor adventures.

Central Phoenix

Central Phoenix is a combination of old-Phoenix aesthetic with modern appeal. It’s resurgence of unique restaurants, bars, vintage shops, and art spaces peppered throughout the area make CenPho a true playground for locals. With Camelback Mountain and the Phoenix Mountain Preserve, many resorts call Central Phoenix their own.

Downtown Phoenix

Downtown Phoenix is a sunny metropolis for work and play. With the Phoenix Convention Center, sports stadiums, arenas, concert venues, performing arts theatres, Phoenix Symphony and events always happening, it’s a relaxed but exciting atmosphere. Hip restaurants, boutiques, art galleries attract a youthful crowd, especially on First Fridays for America’s largest art walk.

Scottsdale

Scottsdale is the newest, glossiest area of the Phoenix area, with shops, nightclubs, swanky restaurants and resorts abounding. Old Town Scottsdale has numerous western stores and art galleries, which makes way for night owls on the weekends. North Scottsdale hosts recognizable stores outdoors to make the most of our sunny weather.

East Valley

The East Valley primarily comprises the cities of Tempe, Mesa, Chandler and Gilbert. While Arizona State University in Tempe has a lively and energetic atmosphere, Chandler, Gilbert and Mesa enjoy a relaxed suburban feel. Shops, neighborhood restaurants and quaint art galleries call the East Valley their home.
