This is a great thread! We haven't actually moved to the Phoenix area, but we do own a house for our winter getaways. Something that surprised me was that there doesn't seem to be any indoor public swimming pools! Please correct me if I'm wrong...we would love to find one! Since all the outdoor pools and water parks close down after the summer, there doesn't seem to be any other alternative.

Even the YMCA doesn't have one? That would be surprising!

I know for certain that the Downtown Phoenix YMCA has an indoor pool.

I remember when the plane was descending down onto the city, how bizarre the mountain looked covered in cactus. It became "normal" to me pretty quickly though.

How would you define a "mountain"? The are several in the Phoenix area that rise well over 1000' from the surrounding area...if that's a hill, it's one BIG hill.
