Stop kidding yourself. Phoenix should never be described as LA w/out the beach. The two cities are in different leagues when it comes to diversity, culture, global influence, entertainment among many other things.

It should be more like "Bakersfield. . . with a kick."

Well, I have to admit I'd rather spend a week in LA than in Phoenix. I am no fan of Southern California myself. In fact, I still dismiss my hometown (San Diego) as being a bland tourist trap. Yet, Phoenix can hardly be considered tourism material. If anything, it's like San Jose, but warmer and without a San Francisco to offer real entertainment.

I am afraid the "Bakersfield...with a kick" label is very appropriate.

You guys are tooo funny. Phoenix like Bakersfield with a kick? Does the Bakersfield area offer some of the finest resorts in America? Bakersfield was probably the NFL's second pick when choosing where to host the 2008 Superbowl right? How about MLB spring training, Barrett Jackson? Does Bakersfield have NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB, each having their own world class stadium? I'm sure 41 million passengers a year pass through the Phoenix airport for that little extra "kick" Phoenix offers over Bakersfield. Scottsdale is internationally recognized as one of the most upscale tourist destinations in America. Phoenix in many ways can be considered more entertaining than both LA and San Diego...Bakersfield? Get the hell outta here. Phoenix should be compared to Houston or Dallas, imo.

Kevin22, here are a couple photos I came across of Phoenix.

you must be a moron, you start this post asking what phoenix is like....now suddenly you are the know-all of what it is like in this city!

give me a break, obviously phoenix doesn't have any fuckin beaches but LATIN FLAVOR? hahahaha
gimme a break, im not sure of the exact percentage but phoenix absolutly does have a HUGE latino population and the influence they have on the feel of the city is very evident.

Phoenix is PHOENIX, not LA or Vegas or Bakersfield or Houston or any other city. it has its own unique feel and for all you twats going around like you know shit about phoenix, try living here for 20 years before you decide that you know how it is because of your drive through or layover or even resort vacation you made in the winter......unless you've lived here you dont know shit

If you're liberal-minded or into alternative scenes, Phoenix is not a great place.

If you're a Republican or a stereotypical fraternity/sorority type, then the Phoenix metro area is probably paradise.

LOL, Los Angeles has better weather, an ocean, a skyline, mass transit, more than three professional sports teams, culture and a life.

Phoenix is more like Orange County, minus Disneyland, the beach and plus 40 degrees farenheit.

L.A. is like Phoenix???!!!! You have to be the biggest retard if anyone thinks L.A. is anything like Phoenix. L.A. has a bigger and better skyline, beaches, weather, mass transit thats growing every day, diversity, development going all over the city and downtown, how in the hell is L.A. and Phoenix alike?

L.A. is in a league of its own and NO city compares to L.A.

I would not say it is like LA, but Phoenix has everything LA has, except the beaches,

but we have better stadiums than LA, better Resorts, it is sunnier than LA, it is a lot cleaner than LA, we have good clubs, all the major professional sports.

I guess LA does not even have an NFL team, or a nice stadium.

the freeway system in LA need to be rebuild, it is horrible. in PHoenix they all look like new. not bad for a metro 4 times smaller than LA.

LA should be much better for its size. Watch out LA phoenix is catching up.
We are america's fastes growing city. and we are changing for better everyday.

Something has to have Phoenix that more and more people move from LA, and other places, yes it is hot as hell for 3 months, but after that it is nice.

We have already told you Kevin,
do you homework, PHoenix has a lot to offer, but it will depend on what you looking for.

Just like Miami has something to offer. Vegas does, and so does Phoenix

Well you are one who is comparing MIami to Ny before.

NY, Chicago and SF are on a different level.
After that all of the cities can be compare.

I really don't see anything special in Miami, Houston, Dallas, Nashville, Atlanta, LA, or Charlotte.
