Local Area Information
We love calling Phoenix our home.
If you are new to the area, or if you’ve been here a while, enjoy all that Phoenix has to offer. Below are a few of our favorite unique & local activities.
Due to its natural beauty and climate, Phoenix has a plethora of outdoor attractions and recreational activities. The Phoenix Zoo is the largest privately owned, non-profit zoo in the United States. Since opening in 1962, the zoo has developed an international reputation for its efforts on animal conservation, including breeding and reintroducing endangered species back into the wild.
Right next to the zoo, the Phoenix Botanical Gardens opened in 1939, and is acclaimed worldwide for their exhibits and educational programs. They feature the largest collection of arid plants in the U.S.
For those who love to explore, South Mountain Park, the largest municipal park in the U.S., is also the highest desert mountain preserve in the world.
