Are You Moving from Chicago, IL, to Phoenix, AZ?

When you move from Chicago to Phoenix, you will trade skyscrapers and subways for cowboys and cactus and lots of sunshine! The largest city in Arizona, Phoenix offers the same urban sophistication you are accustomed to in Chicago but against the backdrop of beautiful desert skies and a climate conducive to spending a lot of family time outdoors. In addition to year-round warmth, Phoenix offers a resort lifestyle but with a low cost of living, declining crime rate, excellent schools, and outstanding economic opportunities. A bright, sunny future is yours for the taking in Phoenix!

What Can Phoenix offer that Chicago Can't?

The information below will help you realize why moving to Phoenix could be the best move you’ve ever made.

  • Climate – Two words describe the climate in Phoenix: hot and sunny. Be sure to pack plenty of sunscreen and an extra pair of sunglasses. You will need both. What you won’t need is a raincoat. Rain is scarce in Phoenix. The average winter high is 67 degrees, and highs are near 80 in the spring and fall. Though summer temperatures top 100 degrees, the desert’s low humidity makes the triple-digit temperatures feel quite nice. Besides, the heat means you can enjoy the outdoors all year long.
  • Education – More than 30 school districts provide public education in the Phoenix area. Many of the area’s schools are top-rated and offer innovative special programs. There are also charter schools and a number of excellent private schools from which to choose. In addition, vocational training is geared toward the actual needs of employers in the area to ensure employability. Arizona State University is the most well-known institution of higher education in the region, and a branch of the University of Arizona College of Medicine is located in downtown Phoenix.
  • Entertainment – Phoenix is home to more than 200 golf courses and a large number of parks, water parks, and recreational areas so you can take full advantage of the year-round sunshine. You can hike, bike, or horseback ride in South Mountain Park and Preserve, the largest park in the world. Phoenix is one of few U.S. cities with franchises in all four major professional sports leagues, which should keep the sports buff in your family entertained. Numerous performing arts venues, museums, and a developing art scene are also at your fingertips. The Phoenix Symphony Orchestra, Phoenix Youth Symphony, Arizona Opera and Ballet Arizona often perform at the Phoenix Symphony Hall. As for food, the area is known for its authentic Southwestern and Mexican cuisine. You can grab a bite at any number of restaurants, cafés, bakeries, and coffee shops while enjoying spectacular mountain views.
  • Economy – The economy in Phoenix has been transformed from primarily agricultural to a mix of tourism, high-tech manufacturing, and construction. In addition to a strong military presence, Phoenix is home to seven Fortune 500 companies. Companies with a large presence in Phoenix include Allied Waste, electronics corporation Avent, mining company Freeport-McMoRan, Apollo Group, and American Express. Intel has one of their largest sites here and employs about 10,000. At a time when many cities see their economic base shrinking, Phoenix continues to thrive.

Welcome to Fabulous Phoenix!

Whether you’re moving from Chicago to Phoenix for a new career opportunity or to explore a whole new lifestyle in the Southwest, Phoenix could be the perfect new home for you!
