If you want to invest in a mobile home, Phoenix, Arizona is a great location.

If a warm climate, palm trees against blue skies, and a more laid-back pace of life are your idea of paradise, then Phoenix, Arizona is the city for you. Located in the Southwestern part of the United States, it receives over 300 days of sunshine per year and is one of the sunniest cities in the entire nation.

Arizona is also home to breathtaking landscapes and vibrant sunsets. Coupled with a cost of living that’s lower than the national average and a recent tech manufacturing boom, it’s not a surprise that it’s become a top destination for Americans looking to study, work, or retire.

Phoenix is a sprawling metropolis measuring 517 square miles, but not far from the skyscrapers and city life, you’ll find national parks and majestic mountains where you can unwind and spend some time enjoying the beautiful, rugged desert wilderness.

History

The Hohokam tribe were the first known settlers in Phoenix, arriving in 700 AD and staying for nearly 2,000 years. They created the first irrigation canals that made life in the desert possible. After the Hohokams, other tribes like Pima, Tohono O’odham, and the Maricopa followed. Today, their culture is still very much alive and Phoenix is home to 22 Native American reserves. Phoenix’s history as a city began in 1868 when its founder Jack Swilling led a group of new settlers and rebuilt canals and waterways to make the land fertile again. Darrell Duppa, a member of Swilling’s party, suggested the name “Phoenix,” the city reborn from the ruins of the old Native American civilization.

Things to do in Phoenix

If you need a break from the city and want some fresh air, head out to one of the beautiful mountains that surround Phoenix. One of these, South Mountain Preserve, is the fourth largest municipal park in the country and has hiking, biking, and equestrian trails. You can also take a stroll in the Desert Botanical Garden, a 140-acre garden home to over 50,000 desert plants nestled on the red rocks of the Papago Park. If you love animals, spend a day at Phoenix Zoo or Wildlife World Zoo & Aquarium.

Want to see spectacular views of the Sonoran from a thousand feet high but don’t want to spend the day climbing a mountain? Then hop on a hot air balloon. Locals and tourists alike love this activity and the views of the sweeping city and rugged mountains from a balloon are magnificent.

Getting fit in Phoenix isn’t hard, with the wide variety of sports clubs and courts that offer tennis, basketball, indoor climbing, and rowing. Phoenix is also a golf country, with 160 golf clubs and around 185 different golf courses.

To quench your thirst for knowledge and history, head over to one of Phoenix’s museums. The Heard Museum is a must-visit for learning about Native American history. There’s the Pueblo Grande Museum and Archaeological Park and mine tours for those who want to see what desert life looked like before modern technology. Art lovers can head on to Phoenix Art Museum, the largest art museum in the Southwest. There are also smaller ones like the Shemer Art Museum, Exotic Art Show, and Bentley Art Gallery.

If you love outdoor festivals with a lively atmosphere, Phoenix hosts the McDowell Mountain Music Festival and a food festival, Devour Phoenix. Each spring you have the Phoenix Film Festival and the Phoenix Flea for treasure hunters in the fall.

Location

Phoenix lies in the beautiful Sonoran Desert and is situated in the Salt River Valley. It’s in the south-central part of Arizona and is approximately 150 miles from the US-Mexico border. The city is flat, allowing for wide roadways and main streets that run on precise grids. Low mountain ranges surround the valley including the Superstitions to the east, the McDowell Mountains to the northeast, and the White Tank Mountains to the West. The Sonoran is the world’s wettest desert, receiving up to 15 inches of rainfall each year. The summer and winter rains make it possible for lush, one-of-a-kind vegetation to grow in the desert. This includes everything from saguaro cacti to prickly pear, the barrel cactus, and more. During the springtime, beautiful wildflowers burst into bloom across the desert, perfuming the air with a gentle fragrance. The city is huge and most people drive to get from one side of the town to another. There is traffic, but locals say it’s less congested than most other major U.S. cities. If you’re in downtown Phoenix, the Valley Metro light-rail system operates 18-22 hours per day, making it easy for people to get around the busy downtown area. When it comes to buying a mobile home, Phoenix, Arizona gives you plenty of options. You can choose from one of the city’s mobile home parks, or expand your search into the greater Phoenix area. Or, purchase a plot of land in the desert hills and put your mobile home on it. You could reside in the mobile home while building your dream home on the perfect parcel of land. It’s all about finding the right neighborhood that caters to your specific preferences and needs, and with so many different types of neighborhoods in this great city, you’re sure to find something that fits your lifestyle and needs perfectly.
