About Assisted Living in Phoenix, AZ
Phoenix is located in Maricopa County and known as ""The Valley of the Sun"" due to its proximity to the Salt River Valley. Sunshine, the lure of winter warmth, high-end resorts, Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses and the surrounding panorama of mountain vistas make Phoenix an ideal place to live the carefree life. Phoenix thrives on an urban village arrangement that promotes strong community interaction, provides good transportation options, is pedestrian-friendly and offers wide open spaces for residents to enjoy.
Desert flora and fauna spill over from the Sonora desert into the city, so sightings of bobcat, cottontail rabbits and mule deer create a delightful interlude in many communities. Phoenix has a solid sports representation, including men's and women's basketball, hockey, football, baseball and soccer teams.
