PHOENIX INFORMATION

Phoenix is the state capital of Arizona, and was incorporated as a city on February 25, 1881. It is Arizona's largest city and largest metropolitan area by population. Phoenix is the largest capital city by population, and the third-largest capital city by area in the U.S. Phoenix is appropriately called Hoozdo, or "the place is hot", in the Navajo language and Fiinigis in the Western Apache language. Phoenix's arid climate is characterized by some of the hottest seasonal temperatures anywhere. The temperature reaches or exceeds 100 F on an average of 89 days during the year, including most days from early June through early September. The dry Arizona air makes the hot temperatures more tolerable early in the season.
