Phoenix is a large, beautiful city that just under 1.5 million people call their home. There are many vacation spots and tourist attractions throughout the city. The top three tourist destinations are the Desert Gardens, Heard museum, and the Phoenix Zoo. Phoenix is known for its hot weather in the summer, the average temperature is 105.3˚F. Finally, there are over 5,000 restaurants scattered throughout the city for convenience. For all of these reasons I would choose to go to Phoenix before any other city.
