1. Best time to visit Phoenix
Firstly, let’s look at the best time to visit Phoenix. November through to April is the perfect time to visit Arizona because you can expect blue skies and cooler weather compared to the summer months.
January through to March is considered high season, avoid these months if you are travelling on a budget and book in advance if you decide to visit at this time.
2. How to get around Phoenix
The best way to get to Phoenix is by flying in Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport then rent a car to explore the city to the max.
3. Getting around Phoenix
Next, let’s look at how to get around Phoenix. The Valley has limited public transport apart from a light rail which runs from Northwest Phoenix through to the East Valley. There are some buses but these are predominately in residential areas. Instead, stick to driving or using Uber.
We highly recommend you rent a car at least for a few days, so you can drive out on some day trips – we will get to that later.
Alternatively, there is a bike sharing program that is becoming more popular, so this could be a great option to get around the city.
4. Save money in Phoenix
When planning your trip, you may be looking t ways to save some money in Phoenix. Plan a trip in the summer for huge savings on accommodation and rental cars, with some restaurants even offering summer specials too. Head to the smaller museums which are often free and enjoy the city parks in the Valley; these are all great free attractions.
5. Don’t miss the food in Phoenix
Phoenix is known for their steaks and Mexican food, so make sure you sample one whilst you are here. Head to The Stockyards for fantastic steaks or the Barrio Cafe for delicious Mexican dishes. Alternatively, you can head to Macayo’s; a restaurant that is said to have invented the chimichanga when the founder accidentally dropped a burrito in the fryer.
Foodies will also want to head to the Phoenix Ranch Market for tasty local specials.
6. Best things to do in Phoenix
Phoenix offers many things to do including the Camelback Mountains and the South Mountain Park. The city is also full of interesting museums such as the Musical Instrument Museum, the Pueblo Grande Museum and art lovers will enjoy the Heard Museum.
7. Day trips in Phoenix
Phoenix has a lot to offer but make sure you leave the city too. Head out to the Grand Canyon, Tucson, Tombstone and Sedona.
8. What to pack for Phoenix
Phoenix is known as the valley of the sun because is sees more than 300 days of sunshine every year/ The desert climate makes this a hot and dry place to visit; so bring a water bottle and keep drinking, bring sunglasses especially if you are driving and make sure to wear a hat to share your face and avoid sun stroke. Light layers are also essential, as are proper trainers for those mountain hikes.
