Why visit Phoenix?

Adventure in the The Sonoran Desert and The Grand Canyon ... or is that Mars? ! With it being one of the lushest deserts in the world, you are guaranteed to see cactuses and wildflowers here. Its vastness means you won't see it all but there a few ways you can get up close with the endless gorge sculpted by the Colorado River. Take a jeep ride across the desert to get to see areas other vehicles can't get too. For more extravagent experiences go horseback riding or take to the skies in a hot air balloon to get the most perfect view, even more so at sunset or sunrise.
