Phoenix, the capital city of Arizona, is comprised of about 10 major suburbs and is known as 'The Valley'. Even though a resident might be from Gilbert or Scotsdale or Glendale, he or she will still refer to him or herself as being from Phoenix. The whole city is on a grid system, and there are several converging inter- and intra-state freeways and highways.

There is a short period of mild weather from December to March, but 100-120 degree weather rules the rest of the months. In August/September there is a limited period of a few weeks called 'Monsoon Season' where it rains for several hours.

Phoenix is home to the biggest party school in the nation, Arizona State College. A beautiful campus set in the middle of downtown Tempe, it is in the middle of several points of attraction, including the newest baseball stadium, Bank One Ballpark - also known as BOB. ASU is a growing college of about 50,000 students, most of which are as hot as the weather.

Despite being a major, metropolitan city, Phoenix is distinctly dull and soul-less. It has no major theatre companies or enriching artistic outlets. It's at best a glorified rest stop for folks on their way to California. It's a web of suburbs comprised of 'pink houses' - developments that rely on the same four or five architectural structures to create identical houses with pink or salmon colored roofs. Like most of the manufactured homes, the people are fake - as in silicon implants and liposuction.

Phoenix also has the rare pleasure to host a large population of what natives call 'Snow Birds'. Snow Birds are a flock of elderly couples and singles that come into The Valley during the three or four months of mild weather and stay in their homes in Sun City and Sun City West until summer begins and they travel again to the norther, cooler climates. They drive very slowly, clog up the freeways, and generally annoy the public.
I've never been hotter than the three days I spent in Phoenix.

The Cap. of Arizona. Also I from Phoenix and I dislike that people dis us. These are the reasons why people should think differently:

1. Unlike other major cities in The U.S.A. we have not been around as long so this is why we have not built up a soulness to say such as other cities that have been around for over 100+.

2. Scottdale is not the only nice place. Glendale has a lot a really nice areas.

3. We can't help the fact that we have many illegals what are we going to due just pick up the state and more it so we are not next to it. Furthermore why does California not get talked about for all of its illegals.

4. We can't help that we don't have a port. I am sorry that we are land-locked and yes we did that just to make you mad.

5. Now if Phoenix as many people moving here then who is to blame about the driving. Let me think the people moving her more than likely becuase they out number native born.

6. I can't help Sun City and the Snow Birds. Maybe people who make fun of them now will become them when they are old to get from the cold.

7. Ya, we have bad public schools but that is why there are private schools. People look up Xavier College Prep and Brophy College Prep. They are some of the best in the USA.

8. I'm sick of people from the Midwest thinking that this place is great. Then moving back to the cold becuase they did not like this place and deciding to just bad mouthing it to get over it. Why don't you think about is wrong with were you live.

9. Get it though your head that it hot here not '70-80 8 months out of the year. That is a good one.

10. If it is hot and so sunny then there would be a good chance of getting skin cancer but then again that is just common sense to me. Why aren't people sayin that about California is it is sunny there.

11. since we are not a old city we have not develop a mass-transit system just over time like older cities.

12. People who say there is not culture are wrong you have to really live here to get to it.

13. We have our slums be every city does so get over it.

14. ASU does party but other school are coming to learn how to run there Recreation Major just like ASU.
Stop bad mouthing Phoenix we you don't know what you are talking about.

A sorry excuse for a city. Sorry but it is. Those who move here from great cities like Chicago, New York, San Francisco, what have you deserve what they (usually) have coming. Why do people think we have such great weather? Is 110 degrees great weather? People here will tell you that its a dry heat or something stupid like that but feel free to dismiss that completely. 110 degrees is 110 degrees. Period. If you want great weather then move to Southern California or if that's too expensive then go to Florida or Hawaii or somewhere in the Carribean. The kids at Arizona State University in nearby Tempe aren't too smart. It's like they're in High School again. They brag constantly about being a party school and it gets quite annoying after awhile.
Phoenix should not be mistaken for a real city.
