Phoenix is the capital and the largest city in Arizona, with well over 1.4 million residents. Located in the Sonoran Desert, it is well-known for its hot desert climate, with long, very hot summer and short, mild winters. This has made it a desirable destination for those looking to avoid dramatic weather fluctuations associated with the seasons throughout the year. Home to four Fortune 500 companies, the economy of Phoenix took a severe hit during the 2008 recession due to the prominence of the construction industry. However, since then the city has improved drastically and is ranked top 10 in the country in terms of employment growth. The military has always had a significant presence in the city, although currently the Lewis Air Force Base is the only active base. Phoenix has become quite a popular tourist location, for all ages and demographics. Among the most popular attractions are the Phoenix Zoo, the Desert Botanical Garden, and Arizona Science Center. Because of the mild winters, there are outdoor activities available year round, including hiking, biking, and horseback riding.
