With a population of over 6.5 million and growing, it's no secret that people are moving to Arizona in droves. What's behind this massive immigration, particularly to Phoenix's popular Valley of the Sun? Phoenix Realtor TheHolmGroupAZ has a few ideas.
Blame it on the Weather
With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, Arizona is a haven for those wishing to escape the rain, snow, sleet and slush. Sure, it gets a bit hot, but it's a dry heat, and that's no joke if you've ever suffered through the wilting humidity of a soggy Southeast summer!
Proximity to Theme Parks
For those wishing to be closer to the Happiest Place on Earth, it's just a short six-hour drive or one-hour flight to Anaheim to visit Disneyland, or for that matter, San Diego's Sea World and the world famous San Diego Zoo.
Proximity to Wonders of the World
Just a short three hours north of Phoenix is the Grand Canyon, a place of such awe and beauty you'll never get tired of exploring it. And don't forget about Flagstaff, the gateway to the Grand Canyon, with Sunset Crater Volcanic National Monument, the Lowell Observatory, Heritage Square, Walnut Canyon and lots of great skiing and snowboarding.
The Desert's Natural Beauty
From a spectacular Arizona sunset to the majestic Saguaro cactus, Arizona has some of the most breathtakingly beautiful natural scenery in the whole Southwest, and you can actually sit outside and enjoy the glorious sunset without being attacked by mosquitoes!
For Sports Aficionados
Whether you're a sports fan or an avid golfer, you'll find something to do in the Phoenix area, with regular spring training camps where you can watch the big leaguers tune up for the upcoming season, and a plethora of year-round public and private golf courses for duffers and pros alike.
Shop and Stop
Scottsdale, Arizona has some of the best shopping in the country, including Scottsdale Fashion Square. With over 250 boutiques shops and department stores, it's the largest shopping destination in the Southwest. And when you're ready to drop, stop in at one of the many fine restaurants that populate the Valley of the Sun, with a choice of fine dining ranging from haute cuisine to comfort food.

Of course, the ultimate reason for moving to the Phoenix area is the superior service you're sure to get from your Phoenix realtor TheHolmGroupAZ, whose expertise, resources and technology will make your home buying experience pleasant and rewarding.
