With an average annual temperature of 72.6F (22.6C), and 300+ days of sunshine, you'll have no lack of opportunities to get outside. And though the city is located in the heart of the Sonoran Desert, Phoenix isn't only about the stark desert beauty: There are more than six lakes within a 75-minute drive from the city center, so you'll be able to get your fill of watersports, too. And golfers take note: You can enjoy more than 190 courses.

    If participating in outdoor activities isn't your idea of a good time, but you like to watch sports, you can root for the NFL's Arizona Cardinals, MLB's Diamondbacks, the NBA's Phoenix Suns, and the NHL's Phoenix Coyotes. On top of that, there are three major golf tournaments, NASCAR, and Indy Car.

    In the evening, get yourself a light jacket, and enjoy the Arts! Choose from professional opera, theater, and ballet, three symphony orchestras, and more. Or spend the day at one of the 23 museums in the area like Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West.
