Don't be surprised if during your visit you begin dreaming of making Phoenix your home. You wouldn't be the first and certainly won't be the last. More than allure surrounds our desert metropolis; a combined promise of economic opportunity and quality living convinces more than 50,000 people to move here each year. If you're thinking of counting yourself in, you're sure to find a welcome reception.
Phoenix is now America's fifth-largest city — a sophisticated, urban region of more than 1.4 million people with a marketplace valued at more than $50 billion. Our population is young, educated, multi-cultural and upwardly mobile. Our residents are as equally dedicated to hard work as they are to play. We are culturally and artistically minded and new and long-established residents alike share an appreciation of the unique land we call home.
