While Phoenix delivers on all the big-city amenities—coffee shops, great food, nightlife, four professional sports teams—the city also offers plenty of outdoor activities, with hiking and camping in the beautiful Desert Southwest accessible by a short 45-minute drive from the city center. And—it’s hard to beat a sunny, 75 degree Phoenix day in January!
