While you may not believe it at first, Phoenix is the only state capital with a population of over 1 million people. The only one. It’s also the largest city in the Mountain Time Zone and the second largest city in the Western United States after Los Angeles, California, and it acts as Arizona’s cultural, economic and financial center. Phoenix is one of the fastest-growing areas in the southern United States and has quickly risen to become one of the most popular auto transportation locations in the entire region as well.

During the American Civil War, the greater Phoenix area (including much of the Salt River Valley) was fought over by natives as well as by European settlers to the area, though the area did not experience much conflict as it was not militarily important.

Phoenix proper was founded by a man named Jack Swilling, who, while passing through the area in 1867, saw huge potential for farming, his inspiration being Fort McDowell and how well its citizens were carrying along. He found the ancient Hohokam canal ruins, and set about building his new city. It continued to grow and build until Phoenix was incorporated in 1881, and has continued to grow ever since.

Phoenix has a very arid climate, and as such it has incredibly hot summers and mild winters, with summer temperatures reaching as high as 107 degrees, while winter temperatures typically panning out in the low-to-mid 70’s. Rainfall isn’t as common, and throughout the year it’s typical for the city to receive around 8 inches or so, with March being the wettest season at just over 1 inch for the month, and June the driest, with only .09 inches.
