Phoenix Guide

It starts with sunshine: Phoenix gets it 300 days a year. Such a consistent weather forecast has made this desert city enormously popular with snowbirds, college kids, and anyone looking to wear flip-flops year-round. Though the heat can bear down, people find a way to have fun and give the city colorful character. Saguaro cacti, adobe homes, and skyscrapers find equal space in the landscape. Phoenix is also one of only 12 US cities with at least four major sports teams: the Arizona Cardinals (NFL), the Phoenix Suns (NBA), the Arizona Diamondbacks (MLB), and the Phoenix Coyotes (NHL).

Morning in Phoenix

  • Breakfast spot: Start your morning in the laid-back country atmosphere at The Farmhouse Restaurant in Gilbert, run by a mother-and-daughter team. Go before 11 a.m. or prepare for a line.
  • Desert Botanical Garden: If you get up early enough, you can beat the heat to visit 140 acres of meticulously landscaped and cultivated native plants.
  • Climb Camelback Mountain: Phoenix’s most famous mountain, this 2,704-foot climb leads to a summit with spectacular 360-degree views of the city (bring plenty of water).

Afternoon in Phoenix

  • Phoenix Park ‘n Swap: The unassuming name belies this Phoenix institution—a beloved flea market with hundreds of vendors selling everything from pottery and turquoise jewelry to real longhorn skulls, art, housewares, and clothing. Open year-round on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
  • Musical Instrument Museum: Headphones serve as your gateway to bizarre and beautiful sounds played by instruments from around the world: Appalachian dulcimers, mechanical zithers, and instruments played by Taylor Swift and John Lennon.
  • Shopping in Scottsdale: When it’s hot outside, head indoors for some air conditioning and retail therapy. The upscale Biltmore Fashion Park is popular; it has an Apple Store, Ralph Lauren, and Saks Fifth Avenue, as well as unique independent boutiques.

Evening in Phoenix

  • Talking Stick Resort Casino: Slot machines and blackjack, roulette, and poker tables are spread over 230,000 square feet at this mega-sized gaming center. The theater within hosts big-ticket music and comedy performances.
  • Old Town Scottsdale: Lively bars, restaurants, lounges, and clubs fill this densely packed area. Look for the hidden entrance to Kazimierz Wine Bar to kick back with a chilled glass of white as the locals do.
  • Downtown Phoenix: Central downtown’s Cityscape development has a stand-up comedy stage, an upscale bowling joint, and more than 20 restaurants; Blue Hound Kitchen & Cocktails is a favorite.

Where to Stay

  • For the outdoorsy types: Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia is at the base of Camelback Mountain; from the pool, get views of the rocks and cliffs that surround the resort.
  • Near shopping: The Gainey Suites Hotel, a newly renovated Scottsdale hotel with an expansive outdoor lounging area, close to high-end Scottsdale shopping.
  • Downtown: Hotel Palomar Phoenix Cityscape has fun, funky decor and a rooftop pool; the hotel is steps from the lights and action in the Cityscape.

From afar, the skyline of Phoenix looks strikingly different from most major U.S. cities. Sure, it has the usual skyscrapers, but they’re set against a dramatic backdrop of rugged desert mountains. In keeping with its appearance, the city manages to balance a dynamic urban culture with a wide array of outdoor offerings. Just beyond the boutiques and restaurants of downtown, hiking trails traverse Camelback Mountain's ruddy sandstone bluffs dotted with mesquite trees, prickly pear, and saguaro cacti. For a more challenging trek, venture to Echo Canyon. At either site, be sure to bring plenty of water; Phoenix has an arid desert climate with more than 300 days of often-intense sunshine. Back in the downtown hub, you can get a taste of Phoenix's diverse cultural scene. Cheer on the Phoenix Suns at U.S. Airways Center or dive for foul balls at Chase Field during a Diamondbacks game. Alternatively, Heard Museum displays an impressive collection of Native American artifacts. And at an open-air market held downtown each Saturday, you can browse vendor stands teeming with fresh vegetables, handcrafted soaps, and fresh baked goods.

Tempe is largely defined by the expansive campus of Arizona State University—one of the largest universities in the nation in terms of enrollment. ASU students infuse the town with a youthful energy, and this is especially evident in the Mill Avenue District, which runs along the campus’ western edge. It’s lined with restaurants, bars, and buildings that date back to the town’s founding in the late 19th century, and the area is easy to walk through. Bordering Mill Avenue you can also find the ASU Art Museum, home to a nationally renowned collection of contemporary art.Across the canal just north of the ASU campus is Papago Park, a hilly preserve laced with walking trails and red rock formations that are typically found throughout the Sonoran Desert landscape and the front lawns of billionaire cowboys. Here you can find the lush Desert Botanical Garden, where docents lead daily tours of the 145 arid acres.Read the Fine Print for important info on travel dates and other restrictions.
