OK, people, let's stop pretending that Phoenix doesn't get cold in the winter. No, wintertime in Phoenix is not as cold as it is in either Colorado or the Illinois, but overnight low temperatures of 32-40 degrees are a regular occurrence between December 1 and March 1. As a result, you will need coats, scarves and gloves for any early-morning or late-night outdoor activities. And in my opinion, that's not much respite from the murderously hot summertime temperatures.

50s and 60s in the day while Iím at work means cold a Hell after the sun sets, when Iím actually off. Iíd rather it be warmer so itís comfy for dining al fresco and sunset hikes which a lot of us Phoenicians like to do. Phoenix weather is fine, 5 million of us do just fine here and another 100,000 are jumping on board every year.

Iím glad youíre content in Denver thatís the beauty of a free world, we can all live where we want. I do think most that havenít lived here exaggerate the impact of the heat, yeah itís sucks but itís not that difficult to work around. 15 summers in and I still crank out 3-5 hikes or mountain bike rides every week of the year.
welp, debate should be over then. No additional context. You'd rather live in a place where highs are in the 100s than in the 60s.
