Find the lowest airfare to Phoenix
Find cheap airline tickets to Phoenix, The state capital and largest city in Arizona, PHOENIX holds only minimal appeal for tourists. When it began life in the 1860s, it must have seemed like a good idea.
The sweltering little farming town stood in the heart of the large Salt River Valley, with a ready-made irrigation system left by ancient Indians (the name Phoenix honors the fact that the city rose from the ashes of a long-vanished Hohokam community).
Now the sixth largest city in the US, it has filled the entire valley, engulfing the neighboring towns of Scottsdale, Mesa and Tempe in the process, with over a million people within the city boundaries and more than two million in the metropolitan area.
