Phoenix is a magnificent city in the heart of the Southwest. The tech scene is growing, with a tech district rising downtown, an innovation center and a tech-focused mayor. The city is amid a building and development boom and is home to some of the Valley’s most innovative and entrepreneurial businesses. Among the fastest-growing industries are professional and business services, information technology and aerospace.
It’s a Western city with a modern feel. The heritage is preserved in the historic area, home to most of the city’s arts and cultural activities and home to beautifully restored homes from 1900. Part of the draw, of course, is the gorgeous no-winter weather in central Arizona!
