Opportunity is the special ingredient to life in the Valley of the Sun. Spiced with variety, life here is rich in activities both indoors and out. Day or night, the weather welcomes you to explore the options. Mixed with world-renowned attractions like the Heard Museum and oneof-a-kind superstars like the Musical Instrument Museum are hidden gems throughout the Valley. The tag on each entry in our You Are Here guide is coordinated with the maps to help you get to them. The Valley is home to world-class dining options and boasts a high number of award-winning chefs. The Scottsdale Culinary Festival, one of the Valley’s signature events, fills a full week in April with cooking demonstrations; chef challenges; beer, wine and tequila tasting; and live music before culminating with the Great Arizona Picnic. The concentration of night spots is renowned, with grooves to fit every age range and, in some areas, clustered close enough together that you can walk from one to another and sample a variety of signature concoctions. Start off by checking out the list we have for you on page 36. A variety of entertainment venues abounds throughout the metro area. Live theater ranges from excellent community theater to performances of national productions at landmarks like ASU Gammage and the Orpheum Theatre. Arthouse cinemas in Scottsdale and Tempe add the voice of indie films to mainstream studio releases, and new theaters like the iPic at Scottsdale Quarter bring movie-going to a whole new level of experience from interactive to luxurious. If shopping is your bag, we’ve got you covered inside and out: from acres of enclosed mall to famous shopping districts like Tempe’s Mill Avenue, Scottsdale’s Marshall Way and Old Towne Glendale’s Antique Row. The outdoor enthusiast will find many parks and preserves dotting the metro area and spilling out to surrounding open space. Bike and pedestrian paths meander through pleasantly landscaped miles that give views of our man-made waterway and vital water source, the Central Arizona Project canal. Or challenge yourself on more rugged trail-biking and hiking terrain. And nowhere is there a higher concentration of golf courses, public and private. In fact, world-class golf courses are part of the fabric of our Valley. On page 18, we’ve compiled a list of public courses as well as information on instruction facilities. The Valley is where it’s at for a swinging good time.

The truly unique landscape of Arizona is one that draws millions to the state each year. Only in the Grand Canyon State can you hike close to home because Camelback Mountain and Piestewa Peak are practically in your backyard. Lake Pleasant, the second largest lake in Arizona, is less than an hour from Phoenix and a popular hotspot for fishing enthusiasts, many of whom have caught prize-winning largemouth bass. The Valley is also home to the South Mountain Park and Preserve, the largest public park in the nation. Biking, hiking and horseback riding are popular activities throughout its 16,000-plus acres of rugged mountain landscape. Dobbin’s Point, the highest point accessible to the public, has unbelievable views of the city lights at dusk. For a bird’s eye view of the Sonoran Desert, make a reservation with Hot Air Expeditions for an unforgettable hot air balloon journey. Amid the hustle and bustle of the Phoenix-Metro area, you can find peace and serenity at Encanto Park, just north of Downtown.  ACADEMY OF CLASSICAL BALLET 21501 N. 78th Ave., Peoria & 623-572-7222

The Executive Course Sometimes a lengthy 18 holes is just too much, so here are some of the best Valley 18- and 9-hole short courses. The Ahwatukee Lakes Gary Panks designed, 18 hole, par 60. 13431 S. 44th St., Phoenix 480-893-3004 • Augusta Ranch Golf Club Top-rated Executive Course, 18-hole, par 61. 2401 S.

Yes, it starts to get hot, but never too hot to play a game of golf. Here, you’ll find some of the best courses in the world, and spring is our time to shine. Home of the Phoenix Open, the TPC in Scottsdale is a great place to play and learn so much about the history of the game. It’s seen the sport’s best; you name them, they have played at this top-rated course. If you are a real pro, then you’ll love the choice between the Faldo and the Palmer courses at Wildfire Golf Club in North Phoenix. Some say Las Sendas Golf Club in Mesa is one of the toughest courses in the Metropolitan area and it is consistently ranked as one of the most challenging courses in America.
