If Phoenix isn’t at the top of your list for your trip, it should be! Here are 5 reasons why Phoenix should be your next vacation destination.
The Outdoor Adventures
Looking for some outdoor adventure? Gear up with your water and sunscreen and hike Camelback Mountain, the highest peak in Phoenix. With its peak reaching 2,704 feet high, Camelback’s incredible views will certainly not disappoint. Want to reach even higher? Drift across the Arizonan skies on a majestic hot-air balloon ride. Soar over the Sonoran Desert and catch glimpses of its inhabitants. Be sure to book a sunrise or sunset flight and watch true artistry at work, as the indelible hues of gold, pinks, blues, and purples paint the sky.
For the adrenaline junkies, skydiving in Phoenix is always an option. Perpetual clear skies and warm weather makes this city the perfect landing spot. However, for those who like to keep their feet planted on the ground, but still like a little thrill, try out an ATV excursion.
The Culture & Arts
For the art and culture lovers, Phoenix should definitely be on your list. Whether you want to dive into the history of the region’s Aboriginal and Hispanic culture, at the Heard Museum, or take a whirl around the Penske Racing Museum, Phoenix has something for all tastes. For a little family fun, be sure to check out the Arizona Science Art Center that boasts of over 3o0 interactive exhibits, live demonstrations, and a state-of-the-art planetarium.
Rest & Relaxation
While true, Phoenix is a city full of things to see and do, it is also the perfect city for a little R&R. You definitely won’t find a shortage of options on how to make that happen. Treat yourself to a spa date at one of the many facilities that offers stunning views of the Sonoran Dessert. Renew your mind body and spirit with innovative methods, or take a step back in time with Old World treatments. Either way, you’ll leave feeling rested, relaxed, and rejuvenated.
Your R&R doesn’t have to be limited to spas. What better place to rest and relax than your hotel? Get comfy and cozy at some of the finest hotels that Phoenix has to offer. Order room service, have a nice and quiet evening in, and enjoy the free breakfast.
Full of Family Fun
Phoenix is full of family-friendly fun (try saying that 3 times fast). Splish and splash at Wet ‘N Wild water park that features over 30 water slides and attractions. Also, be sure to check out the Enchanted Island Amusement Park. There’s a reason this park was named one of the Top 12 Best City Parks in America. The fact that it has bumper boats, kiddie cars, pedal boats, a mini roller coaster, and so much more would be my guess as to why. Take a step back in time and visit the Goldfield Ghost Town, the authentic ghost town where guests will be wowed by history and with great entertainment.
The Gastronomy Scene
No vacation is complete without some good eats. When you think of great food, Phoenix is probably not the first place that comes to mind, but don’t snooze on the Valley of the Sun. The gastronomy scene here is emerging and making it’s presence known in the southwest. Here you’ll find everything from The DeSoto Central Market, a hip food court serving up Chinese-Mex and the likes, to an offbeat, grungy BBQ restaurant with lines out the door, known as Little Miss BBQ. There’s something for every palate.
Convinced yet? I hope so. Enjoy all the incredible things Phoenix has to offer and make it your next vacation destination.
