Living in the Greater Phoenix Area is such a pleasure. In addition to all the wonderful resorts, dining, and sheer beauty of its surroundings, there is always so much going on. It is really becoming a sporting mecca.

In 2015, Phoenix was the site of the NFL’s Super Bowl and Pro Bowl. In 2016, Phoenix will play host to the College Football Playoff National Championship, and in 2017 it will welcome the NCAA Men’s Final Four. Phoenix is the first city to host all four of these mega events in consecutive years.
