Off Season:
The high summer temperatures make visiting Phoenix a challenge. Locals move from one air-conditioned space to the other, venturing out either early in the morning or late at night. Late summer is monsoon season too. Visitors can expect late-afternoon thunderstorms and flash floods are a possibility.

More than 325 sunny days a year, an average temperature of nearly 30 degrees, and a name evoking a legendary firebird, it’s no wonder Phoenix is a hot destination.

Overview

Thousands of snowbirds and golfers seek cheap flights to Phoenix for its near-perfect climate and endless fairways. It’s no resthome destination however, Phoenix has a fiery cultural side too. The United States’ fifth-largest city – made up of almost 24 smaller cities – has a wealth of art tours, museums, galleries and festivals, sizzling cuisine and excellent shopping.

Culture vultures will know it as the home of the the Heard Museum, which preserves Native American culture, and the Phoenix Art Museum, the Southwest’s largest museum. Its 17,000 pieces of artwork span centuries and disciplines – from Asian to European art, fashion design to photography.

To get out into the non-conditioned air, visit the Desert Botanical Garden or climb Piestewa Peak, part of the Phoenix Mountains Park. Open between 5am and 11pm, a dawn stroll or sunset hike will help you escape the sun at its hottest.
