Why fly to Phoenix?


It is the home of one of earth's most awe-inspiring creations, set in a landscape that is found in few places. Phoenix is a land of both utter beauty and baffling wonder. The modern city sits in the Sonora Desert and from your seat just above it appears like an oasis in the middle of miles and miles of deep golden sand.

The Grand Canyon located on the outskirts of the city brings in tourists from far and wide to experience a place that can only be described as the other-worldly kind. Phoenix may sit in the middle of a landscape but it is a true metropolitan city with a fantastic university and unique galleries and museums.

The city is home to world class spas and some of the most beautiful landscaped golf courses. Dining is Phoenix ranges from good grub to fine dining Arizona style. Wake up early one morning to watch the Arizona sun come up as you take in a hot air balloon ride, that is something you will never forget.


Phoenix Weather


Phoenix is hot and of course that comes as no surprise considering it sits in a desert. Summer months are cook-an-egg-on-the-pavement kind. Temperatures soar into the 40s and 50s. Winter temperatures are much cooler comparatively, however for most people it is still very very hot with numbers on average in the high 20s. Rainfall in the city is low throughout the year.


When to fly to Phoenix


Phoenix is a popular destination for winter getaways since winter in Phoenix means hot summer temperatures. Flights are especially pricey in December and January.


Getting into Phoenix


Most travellers heading straight to Phoenix will land at the Sky Harbor International Airport. There are several choices for getting into town including bus, shared van service or the Sky Train which will get you to the Metro light rail stop in central Phoenix. Many hotels and resorts also have a courtesy service and you can reach them from the courtesy phone provided at the airport terminal. Taxis are also available outside of the arrivals terminal.


Getting around Phoenix


If you plant to spend your Phoenix vacation in the downtown core then you're in for a treat since there is a shuttle service to get you around for free. Public transit also exists but will not help you get to the tourist hot spots. And since the Phoenix tentacles have spread so far and wide throughout the desert, if you want to get the most out of your trip and see as much of the city and what it has to offer as as possible, renting a car is the best option.


Insider Guide


  • Phoenix is a big sports city and taking in a game is a golden opportunity to live like a true local and experience Phoenix through a different lens. The city is home to both a major league baseball team as well as a basketball team so there is a greater chance you may be able to catch at least one of the two, even if its just exhibition time.
  • For a wonderful children's trip head to the Arizona Doll and Toy Museum which is conveniently located in the downtown core.
  • For a great day trip head to Sedona, here you will have a chance to see a truly unique earth formation. The red rocks are truly a sight to behold and is one of those unique wonders of nature.
  • Housing in the Sonoma Desert is one-of-a-kind, residents have let their imaginations go and created homes that truly melt into the landscape by utilizing natural materials and shapes that blend with the environment instead of separating from it, grab a jeep and take a tour.
