A sport lover’s oasis

Culturally diverse cuisine

Phoenix is a hot spot for Latin-inspired cuisine, but you’re guaranteed to find a dish from any culture here. There are plenty of Italian, Asian Fusion, Japanese, American Fare, Spanish and Mexican eateries, and many other varieties for the foodie in your life.

Shopping is everywhere

With places such as CityScape and Biltmore Fashion Park, you’re guaranteed to find what you’re looking for on your shopping spree. The neighborhoods surrounding the area also have a variety of boutique shops and plazas, and if you’re feeling up to it, you can head over to Scottsdale Fashion Square.

Excellent location in the Southwest

Not only are you in the capital of Arizona, you are also in a great location to get to other major cities if needed. Los Angeles, San Diego, Las Vegas, Albuquerque, and the Mexico border are only a few hours away by car.

Drink under the stars

They don’t lie when they say the desert has some of the clearest skies you’ll ever see, especially at night. A night out on the town is completely unmatched when you get to grab a cocktail on the patio under a clear sky of stars.

Plant life is (surprisingly) abundant

You’d think for being located in the Sonoran Desert that Phoenix would be a lot of dry land and tumbleweeds, but there is actually a lot of green space and parks, as well as lush cacti and desert horticulture surrounding the city. Feel free to snap some photos of the plant life while you’re here!

Getting around the city is a breeze

In 2015, Phoenix was ranked the best city in the world for driving in traffic. The city is really easy to get around, whether you’re driving, carpooling, taking public transit, walking, or biking. Everything is incredibly accessible.

Plenty of resorts and spas

Visiting the desert wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the resort/spa. While your body has endured the elements during your travels, it isn’t a vacation without a little R&R. Kick back, relax, and check out some of the local spas.
