Maybe so, but I always enjoyed my time in Phoenix, if I had a stay-over. We would stay at the Double Tree. We also enjoyed the southwest cooking.In summer in Phoenix one expects it to be over 100 every day, it is just a matter of how high over 100 it will get. That area gets 7" of rain per year.
Before air conditioningPhoenix was a small city, now it is a large city.
