I'm from Illinois, and my son moved out to Phoenix 3 years ago. My husband has to take his vacation in July, so we have been there when it was 106 -- I know, not the hottest Phoenix can get. We were more uncomfortable when we got back to Illinois, and it was in the high 90's but so very humid. The restaurants there have a misting system on the patios, as do other places like the zoo and a mall. We enjoyed our time there, and some of it was spent outdoors.
