America’s largest suburb and is not a city by any means. “The Valley” as it is called is actually a very fast-growing mesh of identical suburbs that comprise a very dull metropolis, for its size (almost 4 million people), in the Sonoran Desert of south-central Arizona. Phoenix does not constitute a typical large metropolitan profile by most standards and sucks, generally speaking. It isn’t New York. Isn’t L.A. Isn’t Chicago. Isn’t Washington DC. Isn’t Phily. Isn’t San Fran. Isn’t Seattle. Isn’t Miami. Isn’t Atlanta. And even isn’t Dallas-Ft. Worth. Why? No culture (illegal immigrants don’t count). No diversity. Not much greenspace. No rapid transit. No skyline. Not a major educational center (despite having ASU in nearby Tempe). Not a major manufacturing center. Not a major healthcare center. Not a port center. Not a financial center. Not many high-paying jobs. Nothing. It doesn’t even have many corporate headquarters when compared to many cities (US Airways, the worst airline in the country, is the only Fortune 500 company that calls Phoenix home). If you’re single and looking to meet someone, go elsewhere because Phoenix was ranked as one of the worst cities in the country for meeting other single people, especially those looking to get married. The city of Phoenix may be the 6th single-largest US city, in the nation’s 14th largest metro area, but Phoenix has nothing on metro areas that are even half its size. The Phoenix area is known for practically NOTHING and has no functional role whatsoever in our nation’s economy, which is sad, because most cities have some sort of identity or purpose. This makes Phoenix America’s largest “small town” or America’s largest suburb. And to prove it, Walmart is the Valley’s largest employer. Go figure. However it is a good place if you want to golf in the winter (and ONLY in the winter), hike, mountain bike or ski up in the mountains. Most people at urbandictionary who give thumbs down on negative definitions of Phoenix may be due to their heads being so stuck in the sand, that they haven’t realized the truth or haven’t even been to the coastal cities. If native Phoenicians don’t like it then may I suggest you try to change it? I moved here 3 years ago and will never poke fun of Chicago again. At least it is a major world city with world-class amenities and is everything Phoenix is not. Phoenix sucks!

The people are not really very friendly either. They have almost a California mindset and not like what you would see in the Midwest or the South. Phoenicians, as its residents are called, generally have the worst personalities. They seem materialistic, introverted, egocentric, not very social, quiet and downright haughty or stuck up. Try going to Scottsdale. Most of the women there are stuck-up bitches where money, sex, materialism and sometimes partying are the only things that count in this life. The men are just as shallow and judge themselves by the size of their penis, the car they drive, the size of their house, how much money they make or how good looking their trophy wife is. Most Phoenicians are not just rotten people in their personal lives, but also AWFUL drivers on the road. If you don't believe me then drive in Phoenix or on I-17 or anywhere in the state. People don’t use their turn signal, they speed, drive wrecklessly, run red lights, tailgate, cut you off, flick you off, and Phoenix has numerous accidents everyday. Phoenix ranked as the worst city for auto accidents and was the number one city in all those things. Also, if your car breaks down or stalls on any road, drivers will scream at you or flick you off for causing a two-second inconvenience for them. They are not likely to stop and help you.

And don't even get me started about the weather. Despite conventional wisdom of this Sonoran Desert urban hell, Phoenix does NOT have a tollerable climate in general. It is over 100 degress for 8 months, but the remaining months between NOV and end of FEB are good. Do you consider 115-degrees tollerable, let alone for eight months at a time? I didn't think so.

Phoenix has an awfull drug problem, mostly from Meth being smuggled in from Mexico and the illegal immigrants that Phoenix tollerates. The city is a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants and it shows: violence, drugs everywhere, raids for illegal immigrants in a normally quite, suburban neighborhood and awfull traffic, because most of its Mexicans can't drive worth a dam, including the people who actually live there and belong there.

Phoenix is an undersirable urban err..suburban, desert, violent, drug-infested, heat island hell. It was once one of America's fastest growing metro areas, but that is no longer the case due to the decline in the housing market, by which Phoenix once led the nation. I hate this place.

A bowel movement so pleasing and ass shredding that the now water-encapsulated fecal unit(s) could easily support having a phoenix rise from its dookie ashes. The depositor of said BM would not be disappointed if he/she died right then.
I just peeled the paint and was seein' stars - it was total phoenix.

Phoenix the nations 5th largest city and the fastest growing major city in America. Central Phoenix is home to the Phoenix Suns and the Arizona Diamondbacks. Sky Harbor airport is one of the busiest in the nation. The area also includes lower class whites,sometimes involved with Meth. These areas are parts of Mesa,Apache Junction,Cave Creek and Sunnslope. The southside and westside of Phoenix are predominantly Hispanic and black areas. Tempe best known for its party atmosphere and overspoiled ASU students. Glendale is home to the new Arizona Cardinal Stadium and Glendale arena. Scottsdale is one of the upper-class areas located northeast of Phoenix-whites only enclave.
1. By the time I get to Phoenix.

3. Phoenix too many people movin in.

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.

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.

One of the largest cities in America. The weather is sunny and 70-80 degrees 8 months out of the year despite what some ignorant fool might have told you. The Summer is hot but it's better than cloudy and freezing winters. The Phoenix area continues to be the fastest growing area in the country and is quickly becoming the sports mecca of the US hosting the 2008 SuperBowl, NCAA BCS championship, FBR open, Barrett Jackson, MLB spring training, home of the Phoenix Suns, Arizona Cardinals, Phoenix Coyotes, 2001 World Series Champion Arizona Diamondbacks. Phoenix has everything from extremely poor ghettos west along the I-10 corridor and south stretching all the way to Manzanita Speedway, to some of the most upscale areas in the country in far north Scottsdale. Downtown Phoenix is bustling with construction of new hi-rises and a new light rail system. Phoenix has some downsides like every other city but overall it's a really cool place to live.
Most people don't understand why so many people want to live in the desert then end up moving out here after visiting.
