Hot Activities

As one of the biggest cities in the country, it should come as no surprise that Phoenix has a wide range of amazing things to see and do. Chances are, regardless of what you’re interested in, you’ll find it in Phoenix. Catch a world-class performance at the Phoenix Symphony, tee off at one of the many well-groomed golf courses found in the area, or take to the skies in a hot air balloon ride. You can also get face to face with incredible creatures from around the world at the Phoenix Zoo or OdySea Aquarium.

Phoenix Loves its Sports

Phoenix fans have a lot to cheer about. The city is home to professional sports teams in baseball, basketball, football, and hockey. While every sports city has its ups and downs in terms of competitiveness, Phoenix has been performing at a high level in one of the major leagues for years now. In fact, the WNBA Phoenix Mercury have been one of the most dominant teams throughout the league’s history. You can also find the NBA’s Phoenix Suns, the NFL’s Cardinals, the NHL’s Coyotes, and the MLB’s Diamondbacks.

Something Different

Phoenix has a unique Southwest flair evident throughout the city and the surrounding area. You’ll find this most prevalently in the food, which captures the spice of Mexico to the south and transforms it into something uniquely American. Part of this Southwest style undoubtedly originates in the climate and geography, with the majestic Camelback Mountains and the pristine Tempe Town Lake creating a beautiful backdrop to the city.

Getting Around

If you have a car, you’ll have an easier time getting around the city, but if you are planning to go green while living at one of our Greystar apartments, you can make it work. The city offers a bus line as well as the Valley Metro Light Rail. You can also use ride-sharing programs like Lyft and Uber. When you’re ready to head out of the area, Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport makes traveling domestically or internationally a breeze.

If you’re moving to Phoenix, be prepared to enjoy great weather, plenty of things to see and do, delicious food, and a distinct Southwest flair. Greystar’s communities around the city offer something for everyone, with various floor plans and amenities to suit your needs.
