Phoenix is the nation’s fifth-largest city. It offers just about everything in the way of sports, recreation, arts, culture, dining, lodging and financial opportunities. The beautiful weather — more than 300 sun-filled days per year and an average temperature of 72.6 degrees — means activities can be enjoyed year-round in this dynamic area. The population of the greater Phoenix area is younger than the national average, with more than 50 percent of residents ranging between the age of 18 and 54. Phoenix’s cost of living is very reasonable — 96.8 overall cost-of-living index — making it an affordable choice for young families and an asset for companies looking to attract workers.
