Known as the "Valley of the Sun", you would realize Sun is your official stalker and it follows you everywhere you go. There may be four different seasons but in Phoenix, for a change - actually there's no place for change, you feel hot all the time of the year! During Winter, it's hot and during Summer, it's even hotter. You soon realize the scorching Sun and burning heat doesn't affect you and that you could still take that unattractive selfie. Better you don't sin elsewhere, the Sun is watching!
Cooking in the open is not weird
With the temperatures predominantly hitting three digits, you could easily cook outside. From cooking to baking, you could do everything on the roof of the car or in the open. Now give your kitchen a break and just live on the streets like Phoebe did.

Desert looks stunning
The Sonoran Desert covering a large part of Phoenix would make you think about the clichéd desert scene full of withered away plants and lifeless landscapes. But the scene is totally different in Phoenix. The desert looks amazing, especially in the nights; With the colorful exploding of spring flowers and endless trail of Saguaros decorating the path, enjoy the crimson Phoenician sunset.
Food is scorchingly perfect

Asking for a cup of coffee would get you the same stale coffee but in Phoenix, it comes with a twist of art. A steaming cup of joe comes either with a heart (please don't consider this a love proposal) or a fine rosette. You could find it in every barista you visit here and you feel attracted to it immediately that you try making it yourself and realise you just suck! Leave it to the professionals, please.
Rains are precious as Gold
With the hot weather taking up almost an entire year, people in Phoenix long for the arrival of rain and treat them like gold. The captivating smell of a petrichor and the thundering sound of the rain is a sweet release to the souls and they run off to the streets as if there's an earthquake. That's how precious, Phoenicians treat their rain.
Storms are real shit

Phoenicians have regular visits from the dust storms gushing at the speed of up to 60mph and they totally look life-threatening. The storms and the hurling of winds will make you run for your dear life and it totally looks apocalyptic. Take a bow Dear Phoenicians, you're strong!
