The once-dry Tempe River bed is now every bit as wet as a kiddy water park. Bumper-to-bumper surface roads vie for traffic with bumper-to-bumper freeways. And what citizen would dare venture from home without such high-tech wizardry as a cell phone, laptop and Palm Pilot? Today, navigating the Valley is more of a challenge than ever.
That said, we bring you the 22nd Annual Best of Phoenix®. Think of it as our "2000 one — a place odyssey" steering you to old favorites and new finds. Cyber-certified and well-connected, it’s your print and online guide to the best the Valley has to offer.
