Greater Phoenix Trip Planner
Welcome to Greater Phoenix!
Greater Phoenix encompasses a number of suburbs around the Arizona capital. While the city of Phoenix is a popular tourist destination in its own right, smaller centers such as Tempe, Scottsdale and Mesa offer a variety of attractions and activities within a short distance from the amenities of Phoenix. Tempe is known for its annual festivals, including the Tempe Fiesta Bowl Block Party, featuring bands, food concessions and more to help celebrate New Year's Eve. Scottsdale is home to a number of golf courses that are open year round and draw people from around the state and across the country. Casa Grande is another suburb that is located just south of Phoenix and provides more golf courses, art galleries and accommodations for visitors to enjoy. The Greater Phoenix area also includes towns such as Wickenburg, Maricopa and Carefree, smaller destinations that are still within the service area of Phoenix and give visitors access to big city amenities.
