From the northwest, our route arrives in ever-growing metropolitan Phoenix by way of US-60/89, which passes through the retirement communities of Surprise and Sun City. The historic route follows Grand Avenue all the way to the downtown area, where you can follow the old main road, Van Buren Street. But if you’re in a hurry, hop onto the freeway system and hope you don’t get too lost—it’s a crazy and confusing city, so spread out it can seem to take forever to get anywhere.
