Greater Phoenix is surrounded by mountain ranges, and referred to as the "Valley of the Sun."

Phoenix is the United States’ sixth-largest city with a population of over 1.6 million.

Greater Phoenix (which includes, among others, the cities of Chandler, Glendale, Scottsdale and Tempe) has a population of nearly 4.5 million and covers 2,000 square miles.

Maricopa County—where Greater Phoenix is located—covers 9,266 square miles.

Phoenix's elevation is 1,117 feet.

Greater Phoenix is located in the Sonoran Desert, which is one of the wettest and greenest deserts in North America, thanks to 3-15 inches of annual rainfall.

According to data compiled by the National Climatic Data Center, Phoenix basks in sunshine more often than any other major metropolitan area in the U.S. The sun shines on Phoenix during 85 percent of its daylight hours.

Phoenix has an average annual rainfall of 8.04 inches, an average temperature of 75.05 degrees and an annual high temperature of 86.7 degrees. The average high temperature in winter is 67 degrees.
