When you visit Phoenix, you’ll find a variety of ways to get around town, whether you want to take public transit or ride a bike. The Valley Metro Rail is a light rail system that takes you east to west and back through the city. A bike share program is also available for residents and visitors alike. Take the Phoenix Sonoran Bikeway for a path from Sonoran Preserve to South Mountain Park. Stop along the way to explore notable spots like the Roosevelt Historic District, Cave Creek, or Mystery Castle.
Visit Downtown Phoenix to enjoy the central business district of the city, which is home to major league sports, concert venues, university buildings, and more. Visit the symphony for a show or take in the sights and sounds of the area as you walk among some of the city’s oldest and most notable buildings. Tour the historic neighborhoods in the downtown district and find Victorian-era architecture and mid-century modern buildings. Grand Avenue, on the western side of Downtown Phoenix, offers a unique array of art galleries, studios, and vintage architecture that is a delight to peruse.
Although the Phoenician heat will send many visitors indoors, nature lovers will adore the variety of activities to explore the outdoors. Even in the city limits, you can enjoy a public park for a picnic, or take home some fresh produce from a local farmers market. The Desert Botanical Garden includes 140 acres of urban garden space, and it features a beautiful mix of art and nature in unison. In nearby Tempe, enjoy Lake Kiwanis or Tempe Town Lake by boat or kayak. Outside of Phoenix, there is no shortage of hiking opportunities: trek up Camelback Mountain, McDowell Mountain Regional Park, or Piestewa Peak to find breathtaking views of the surrounding area.
