Phoenix: Golfer Paradise

Phoenix is one of the best areas in the country for golfing, thanks in large part to its near perfect year round climate. This beautiful urban city boasts a number of championship level golf courses as well as easier courses, so anyone can find a course to enjoy. The city is home to intriguing desert flora and fauna that can be seen at the popular Desert Botanical Garden. Beat the heat by going early in the morning. The Arizona Mining & Mineral Museum is home to an extensive collection of beautiful gems and minerals, some of which were mined locally in the surrounding mountains. The Camelback mountain is the perfect location for hiking enthusiasts. This isn't a difficult hike, and the views of the valley are well worth the effort."
