Explore Phoenix.

Just minutes from the airport to downtown, Phoenix isn't called Arizona's urban heart for nothing! As America's fifth most-populated city and Arizona's state capital, visitors come to Phoenix from around the nation for arts, culture, business, and education. Browse one of the city's many museums and soak up its rich cultural history, from the largest fine art museum in the Southwest, Phoenix Museum of Art, to Native American art and tradition at the Heard Museum, as well as the 15,000-instrument collection at the Musical Instrument Museum. Art lovers shouldn't miss Roosevelt Row, an area of the city full of art galleries, colorful street murals, and a monthly art walk. In the evening, catch a ballet performance at the Orpheum Theater or see a concert at the Comerica Theatre before ending the night at one of the esteemed dining options in the city's historic Heritage Square.

Not only is Phoenix a thriving cosmopolitan center, it's also full of parks and natural preserves and is the perfect gateway city to the Grand Canyon. Explore the 50 miles of trails in South Mountain Park and Preserve and enjoy rock climbing, hot air ballooning, desert Jeep tours, and more. Hike up Camelback Mountain, the 1,200-foot-tall landmark that looks like a kneeling camel, for gorgeous views of the city and Phoenix Mountains Preserve. Explore the red rock buttes in Papago Park and then, after a long day of trekking, relax at one of the city's many luxurious spas.

Phoenix is also a great city for sports! Located in the Sonoran Desert, you can enjoy the endless sunshine from the stands during spring training in February and March, or from one of the signature golf courses that make Phoenix one of the top golf destinations in the world. A vibrant desert landscape foregrounded by the bustling city makes Phoenix a vacation getaway with the best of both worlds.
