About Downtown Phoenix

Fast paced and even faster growing, Phoenix is a sprawling metropolis at the heart of the Salt River Valley in what is known, poetically and appropriately, as the Valley of the Sun. What began as an agricultural community is now the 12th largest city in the United States, with over 1.5 million year-round residents. Popular for its sub-tropical, arid climate and open, expansive spaces, it is a haven for Snowbirds and RV'ers and a hub for commerce and business industries. At the center of it all is the vibrant Downtown area.

Getting Around Downtown Phoenix

Around Downtown Phoenix

Downtown is urban and bustling, with high-rise condominiums and lofts that are close to an active nightlife scene, museums, and restaurants. Biltmore and Arcadia, farther east, offer a quieter environment and way of life, with single-family homes and golf condos near the Biltmore Resort and Camelback Mountain areas. Most of the homes in the Downtown neighborhood are condominiums, although there are a few single-family options, but those rarely come on the market.

Downtown has everything from Mexican, Japanese, French, German, and American creations to whet the appetite of the most devoted foodie. The neighborhood also has plenty of great pubs and steakhouses to try, and the local chain Macayo's has some of the best authentic Mexican food in the region. For a more elegant dining experience, check out the Hotel Palomar, where you can enjoy a cocktail and ground-breaking American fare while enjoying unparalleled views of the valley.

Newcomers to Phoenix often gravitate to the Downtown area, which has college campuses, Chase Field, and an active nightlife. The most common sight in Downtown are the multiple office buildings, housing the city's array of companies. Since Downtown is the center of commerce, expect to see office workers wandering around during their lunch break or commuting to and from the office.

Check out a concert with the Phoenix Symphony or perhaps go to the Orpheum Theatre, where you can find the Phoenix Opera and Ballet Arizona. The Herberger Theater Center also has a full schedule of performances throughout the year. If clubbing is more your style, Washington Street has a wide selection of dance clubs and lounges. If you want to catch a game, the Phoenix Suns and Arizona Diamondbacks both call Downtown home.

Spend a few hours at the Phoenix Art Museum, Wells Fargo History Museum, or Arizona Science Center. Follow up a tour with a classic brunch at Welcome Diner, a Phoenix staple that opened in 2004 and is housed in a building that was constructed in 1945. There are also numerous sidewalk fairs, bazaars, and farmers markets to browse and shop, as well as countless climbing and hiking opportunities to try. Take a stroll through Heritage & Science Park, a collection of historic homes, buildings, and a museum.

Downtown is Great

Cameron M
For a long time, it was not easy to live downtown. Aside from very little housing, there were no grocery stores and all the necessities. A lot of that is changing. Several condo developments and a growing amount of stores for everyday living are coming up all the time.
