Phoenix

Phoenix is the capital, and largest city, of the state of Arizona. Kids will enjoy Desert Botanical Garden and McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park. Get in touch with nature at Camelback Mountain and Dolly Steamboat. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Phoenix: Scottsdale (Taliesin West & McDowell Sonoran Preserve), Boyce Thompson Arboretum (in Superior), Goldfield Ghost Town (in Apache Junction) and Harrah's Ak-Chin (in Maricopa). There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Old Town Scottsdale, examine the collection at Musical Instrument Museum, meet the residents at Phoenix Zoo, and get engrossed in the history at Heard Museum.

For maps and other tourist information, refer to the Phoenix trip itinerary planner.

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Phoenix. In April in Phoenix, expect temperatures between 87°F during the day and 62°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sat) early enough to drive back home.
