Phoenix scores lofty ranking in new study of America’s best cities

Phoenix ranks as the 13th best city in the country and the top city in Arizona, according to a consulting firm’s annual study.

“Latin soul, daring architecture and a reverence for the outdoors blends a heady mix in the heart of the American Southwest,” says the study.

The 2020 study praises Phoenix for its:

  • A thriving desert metropolis, Phoenix offers some of the best Mexican food

this side of the border, a number of fine museums, a vibrant artist community

and 300 days of sunshine. 

  • The city ranks #12 in the country in their Sights and Landmarks category. 
  • Summit trails are not for the faint of heart, especially in 100-degree heat, but the base of Camelback Mountain offers easier and equally beautiful trails for beginners.
  • Phoenix ranks #13 in the nation for its Parks & Outdoors.
