Phoenix. Pop. 1,601,587. State Arizona AZ. Currency US Dollar, Language English. Time Zone GMT minus 5 hours. Main Airport Orlando International Airport MCO. Climate - subtropical arid climate, with extremely hot summers and warm winters. Best time to go October to May, when the weather isn't too hot and humid. Phoenix was founded in 1861 near the Salt River, near its confluence with the Gila River. Although the surrounding area was semi-desert the city grew as a centre for agriculture with irrigation coming from the Salt and Verde rivers coupled with a number of large reservoirs in the mountains north and east of Phoenix. Tens of thousands of acres were planted with citrus, cotton and other crops, and for many years, intensive, year-round irrigated agriculture formed the basis of the city economy. In later years many high-tech and telecommunications companies have also recently relocated to the area. Also, due to the warm climate in winter, Phoenix benefits greatly from seasonal tourism and recreation, such as the golf industry. Modern Phoenix is divided into the following districts Downtown, Midtown, West Phoenix, North Phoenix, Camelback East, South Phoenix, and Ahwatukee. Principal attractions in the city include - Arizona Science Center, Desert Botanical Garden, Heard Museum, Phoenix Art Museum, Arizona Grand Golf Course, Mesa Arts Center, and Sea Life Aquarium. For souvenir collectors Phoenix has some distinct gifts such as - scorpion bolo ties and saguaro-cactus salt, pepper shakers, and the famous Cactus Candy.

Phoenix - wikitravel

Why would anybody want to start a city in the middle of a desert? The answer is, surprisingly, agriculture. The Salt and Verde Rivers of central Arizona were exploited for large-scale agriculture by Native Americans as early as the 11th century. Warm and sunny winter weather also ensured a thriving tourism industry, and encouraged many easterners and midwesterners to relocate to Phoenix.
