Phoenix benefits from its unique location in the Salt River Valley, on the edge of the Sonora Desert. With the Salt River in close proximity, the city has plentiful recreational areas. Water skiing and hiking are popular throughout the Valley of the Sun. The region is also home to several sports teams to include the Major League Baseball Arizona Diamondbacks, NBA's Phoenix Suns, the NFL Arizona Cardinals, and NHL Phoenix Coyotes.
