Actually, due to global warming, it's become a lot less miserable
than many other cities in the summer; It's much drier, with humidity usually in the single digits.
In addition, everyplace is comfortably (and reliably) refrigerated (Phoenix wouldn't exist otherwise.)
Swimming pools abound. That's why it the fastest growing city population in the US.
VACATION IN ARIZONA
Arizona has one of the largest variations in elevation and climate of any state,
year-round; packed into a smaller area than overpopulated, overpriced California. If you want cool
temperatures, head for the high country in Northern Arizona. It has volcanoes, canyons, lakes and redrock.
Arizona leads the planet in
varied, incredible scenery.
It's a photographer's paradise.
