Phoenix Map

When you think of Phoenix, Arizona you may think of a small dusty town in the middle of the desert, full of cactii and palm trees. Well, all of those things are kind of true except for the "small" part. Phoenix is a big city, so big that visitors are often surprised. It is the sixth largest city in the United States, with a population of close to 1.5 million (and that`s in the city alone, not the metropolitan area). The metro area has around 4.2 million, making this a full-on metropolis.

Phoenix is one of the hottest cities in the United States, which rivals some of the hottest places in the Middle East during the summer months. In an average year, 110 days will see temperatures of over 38 degrees celsius (100 degrees F). From May until September, temperatures are HOT by anyone`s definition. The highest temperature to ever hit the Arizona city was 50 degrees (122 degrees F). In the winter Phoenix is not hot, and night and morning temperatures can occasionally reach below freezing and frost is a common occurrence (though not as much in central Phoenix where the city heat brings the temperature up a little bit). Rainfall is scarce, though summer monsoon weather raises humidity with occasional heavy rain.

This first Phoenix map is a simple one showing the streets and highways of the central area.
