Sports: One of the most competitive cities in America, Phoenix is home to several professional teams such as Arizona Diamondbacks, Arizona Cardinals and ASU Sun Devils. If you don’t feel like buying game tickets (which are on average $60+), head down to the stadium up an hour or two early–games typically open up their parking lots for free tailgating and many fans bring TVs and other inflatable games like cornhole to pass the time while they wait for kick-off.
