Phoenix is a great destination for anyone looking to explore the Arizona desert. If you’re flying from Los Angeles (LAX), you’re familiar with the San Fernando Valley. Similarly, the Phoenix metropolitan area sits in the Salt River Valley, with various low mountain ranges surrounding it. In addition to spectacular hiking spots, the city itself offers other fantastic indoor and outdoor spots to enjoy. Enjoy a drink at a rooftop bar, hike up Sunnyslope Mountain, or explore the local vineyards’ tasting rooms.
Phoenix is a city divided into urban villages and districts. When you visit, be sure to check out downtown Phoenix, home to the central business district of the city. You’ll find that it’s also home to several major league sports teams, as well as concert venues and university buildings. Enjoy a show at the symphony, or admire the architecture of some of the city’s oldest and most notable buildings. The downtown district includes a variety of historic neighborhoods that are noted for their unique architecture, ranging from Victorian-era styles to that of the mid-20th century.
You have several options for getting around Phoenix, from public transit to biking. You can go east to west and back through the city on the Valley Metro Rail, a light rail system. The Phoenician public transit system can get you to your desired destination, for business or pleasure or both. Visitors can also use the bike share program; hop on the Bicycle Boulevard, featuring 4.6 miles of pure bike trail. Keep an eye out for four-legged (and no-legged!) friends—plenty of desert animals call Phoenix home, like Gila monsters, snakes, tortoises, and more.
