Visiting Phoenix for Plastic Surgery | Jude LaBarbera, MD

Phoenix is the largest city in Arizona and the fifth biggest in the United States. In fact, it is the largest state capital by population with more than 1.55 million residents. Phoenix is located in the northeastern reaches of the Sonoran Desert and has been the capital of Arizona since 1889.

Phoenix has a canal system that – in spite of the hot desert climate – led to a thriving farming community. The crops farmed by the original settlers still remain an important part of the Phoenix economy to date. These include the likes of alfalfa, citrus, cotton, and hay. Following the Second World War, high-tech companies became a significant part of the state’s economy. 

Air conditioners also helped make the city’s hot summers more bearable.

Phoenix is a city that cherishes its culture. It has many performing arts venues within and around its vicinity. These include the Phoenix Symphony Hall, Opera Center, Orpheum Theatre, and Dorrance Theatre. The Herberger Theatre Center is one of the largest performing arts venues and houses three performance spaces. Phoenix also has dozens of Museums which include the Phoenix Art Museum, Musical Instrument Museum, Arizona Capitol Museum, and the Hall of Flame Firefighting Museum.
