Always Entertaining – Always Fun – Great Place to Live
Arizona has become a Mecca for anyone looking for opportunity – whether it’s a chance to find a great job, a nice home, enjoy beautiful weather, or an opportunity to partake in the amazing scenery, there’s something for everyone. Arizona has seen a phenomenal growth in population over the past decade. Arizona attracts millions of visitors each year, and as these visitors realize the unique opportunities in Arizona, they come back to stay.
Arizona has grown into quite the entertainment capital. If you like professional sports, you’ll find lots of options in Phoenix. There are professional sports teams for baseball, basketball, football, Women’s basketball, even hockey. Arizona is also the sight of spring training for a number of professional baseball teams. For the true baseball fanatic, there’s nothing more fun than taking in several preseason baseball games, while also getting a little sun and breaks from dreary winter.
Arizona is a golfer’s paradise. With over 325 golf courses you can find a tee time whenever you’d like. In fact, Arizona has 100 golf courses that are rated as some of the best courses in the world. There are two tournaments sponsored by the PGA and LPGA each year. Golf tournaments are a major draw for tourists.
Of course, one of the prime draws to Arizona is the incredible natural environment. Not only can you count on incredible sunny days, but you have some of the most scenic, unsurpassed parks in the world. Arizona, the Grand Canyon state, offers truly spectacular vistas, with opportunities, to hike and rock climb.
Arizona is a little bit like Brigadoon – visitors fall in love with the open beauty, the incredible weather, the friendly people and the endless choices of entertainment. As a result, the population just keeps skyrocketing. And real estate sales are keeping pace with the influx of people.
In fact, Arizona may see steady increases in home prices, but it still represents one of the most affordable places to live. For families that have been priced out of the home market in other parts of the country, Arizona can be a haven. New home buyers are finding homes that are not only affordable, but that their money goes further than ever. You’re able to more house for your money than almost any other major metropolitan area.
Central Arizona offers visitors and residents a great deal of diversity. The population of the area is diverse and balanced. There are many employment opportunities for highly educated and for blue collar employees and lots in between. This valley might not be the land of milk and honey, but it certainly offers people a rare opportunity to own a home, start a new life, find amazing career and live in an area that offers great diversity and entertainment.
