Top contributor Jeff Walrich did a phenomenal job with this drone video from the areas surrounding Phoenix, Arizona.  The city which had a population of less than 100k as late as the 1940's is now the center of a metropolitan area of nearly 5 million.  However, even as this desert city has grown it still offers some of the best close-in nature spots of any large US city.  Despite decades of spreading sprawl, it's still possible drive for less than a half hour, and feel like you're a million miles from civilization.

Scottsdale, Arizona has sometimes been called the desert equivalent of Miami Beach.  It's essentially a very large suburb of Phoenix, Arizona, located to the north and east of the state's largest city.  The large, rectangular-shaped city is about 50 km (around 30 mi.) north to south.  Its estimated population of about 25k, it's the fourth-most populous city in the Grand Canyon State.  You can check out this legendary wintertime destination from above in this drone video by RussellKriz85.

Contributor Blaze brings us this excellent aerial view of the home stadiums of the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League.  Since 2018 it's been called State Farm Stadium, and it's in Glendale, about 15 km (around 10 mi.) northwest of downtown Phoenix.  The (expandable) 63.4k stadium opened in 2006, and for most of its life it was called the University of Phoenix Stadium.  It's also hosted major college sports events, such as the Fiesta Bowl and the Final Four basketball championship.
