Phoenix is a home to Project Arizona. The vibrant, fast growing capital of Arizona is also major city of Phoenix Metropolitan Area of 4.5 million people. It’s warm and beautiful city built on desert, surrounded by mountains. During the project you will live with remaining participants in a large 5-bedroom house in Phoenix. We will put you with one more participant in a bedroom, and there will be at least three bathrooms in the house. Project Arizona’s house will have a large lobby where we plan to host “Meet AZ” informal guest speaker & dinner series. It is going to be a wonderful place of great atmosphere. We are sure you will enjoy it greatly!

Due to the warm climate in winter, Phoenix benefits greatly from seasonal tourism and recreation, especially in the golfing industry.
