'''Phoenix''' (

The anchor of the Phoenix metropolitan area (also known as the ''Valley of the Sun'', a part of the Salt River Valley), it is the 13th largest metro area by population in the United States, with approximately 4.3 million people in 2010. Census: Phoenix-area population tops 4.3 million, moves up metro rankings – Phoenix Business Journal. Bizjournals.com (March 14, 2013). Retrieved on September 6, 2013.

In addition, Phoenix is the county seat of Maricopa County (Maricopa County, Arizona) and is one of the largest cities in the United States by land area.

Settled in 1867 as an agricultural community near the confluence of the Salt (Salt River (Arizona)) and Gila Rivers, Phoenix incorporated as a city in 1881. In fact, the "Five C's" (Cotton, Cattle, Citrus, Climate, and Copper), remained the driving forces of Phoenix's economy until after World War II, when high tech industries began to move into the valley.

The population growth rate of the Phoenix metro area has been nearly 4% per year for the past 40 years. While that growth rate slowed during the Great Recession, it has already begun to rebound. Phoenix is the cultural center of the Valley of the Sun, as well as the rest of Arizona.
