Getting There in Phoenix

Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport offers national and international flights and is one of the US's fastest growing airports and is America West Airline's hub.

Phoenix is located on the major east-west highway Interstate-10. It is a city made by cars and for cars. Free parking abounds almost everywhere except for the downtown area -- and even there free parking can be found.
