Explore Phoenix.

With its dry climate and laid-back atmosphere, Phoenix is the perfect place to get away from the everyday to relax and rejuvenate yourself. And there’s no better way to do that than at a spa or wellness center, of which Phoenix and its neighboring communities have in abundance.

Whether you’re looking for a couple’s massage or the seclusion of a solo soak, a refreshing facial or the burn of hot stone therapy, there’s something to suit your needs at any of the countless spas in the area. Figure out what you want and consult reviews to find the best fit.

Many spa and wellness resorts also have associated golf courses. Shooting par is beside the point—the golf courses in Phoenix offer year-round relaxation and the chance to get some exercise. Plus, how many other sports let you enjoy a frosty beverage or two while you play? Course schedules can fill up fast, so be sure to book a tee time before you arrive.

If golf isn’t really your thing, but you’re still looking for something outdoorsy to do, there’s plenty of great red rock hiking to be done in Phoenix. Camelback Mountain is hard to miss from anywhere in the valley. It rises more than 1,200 feet above the surrounding area, and you can reach the summit from either of two trailheads. Depending on your pace, the climb usually takes anywhere from 90 minutes to three hours. The Praying Monk is a popular formation along the trails for rock climbers. There’s also Papago Park, White Tank Mountain, and Usery Mountain nearby.
