First time going to Phoenix? We want you to make the most out of your car rental Phoenix experience. That is why, we've enlisted the help of a local travel expert to help get you on your way. Follow these useful travel tips and enjoy the finest that Phoenix has to offer...
See: Situated in the heart of the Southwest, Phoenix is a quickly evolving city maturing from winter getaway and retirement community into a fantastic, dynamic year round destination. While famous for its mild winters, Phoenix is a wonderful city to visit at any time - so long as you don’t mind a bit of heat!
Despite recent progress and new public transportation infrastructure, the greater Phoenix area is predominantly geared towards cars. Luckily the city has excellent road infrastructure making it easy and painless to get across the city. While the city doesn’t have a subway system, it does have a fairly new light rail line which stretches from Downtown Phoenix through Tempe to East Mesa which connects a number of the greater Phoenix area’s key cities.
Phoenix was chosen to host one of America’s greatest musical treasures: The Musical Instrument Museum, more commonly called the MIM. While you might assume this museum to be a quick in-and-out experience, make sure you set aside several hours to properly enjoy it. You’ll be surprised!
In the mood for an adventure? Consider taking advantage of the spectacular views offered by a hot air balloon tour. These tours will give you a stunning view of the Arizona landscape. Prefer to stay on the ground? Then head to one of the city’s western themed adventure parks such as Western Destinations or Arizona cornerstone: Rawhide.
Phoenix also has a wealth of major sporting events available. Depending on your preference options range from seeing the Arizona Cardinals or Arizona State Sun Devils for a bit of American football, the Diamondbacks for Baseball, the Phoenix Suns for Basketball and the Phoenix Coyotes for Ice Hockey. The Cactus League also hosts a large number of baseball spring training games.
Shop: Phoenix is a top-notch shopping destination, boasting a number of world-class brands and a wealth of wonderful shopping venues.
Some of these include Scottsdale Fashion Square, which boasts high-end brands such as Gucci, Barney's New York and Neiman Marcus. There is also the recently renovated Biltmore Fashion Park featuring brands like Saks Fifth Avenue and Coach in addition to other shopping centres: Chandler Fashion Center, Desert Ridge Marketplace, Scottsdale Quarter and Kierland Commons. Another popular destination is the sprawling Arizona Mills Outlet Mall.
Eat: Phoenix has a wonderful culinary scene offering a fantastic mixture of cultural dishes and more traditional American fare. From fantastic steakhouses such as Flemings and Fogo de Chow to the immensely popular Pizzeria Bianco if you want it, you can find it in Phoenix.
However, a trip to Arizona is not complete without sampling the state’s wonderful mixture of Mexican and South Western food. No matter your budget or mood, there’s a type of Mexican food to fit. Vitamin T is a popular and well rated taco shop in downtown Phoenix. A personal favourite is the Sonora Mesquite Grill. For fast food/budget style Mexican food consider the local staples Filibertos and Armondo’s Mexican food restaurants – just don’t expect fine dining!
Drink: Phoenix is home to a number of fantastic microbreweries. These breweries offer great beer and a warm atmosphere with a unique Arizonan flair. A local favourite, Four Peaks Brewery, has several locations, huge portions, and a fantastic beer selection. If you visit in fall, make sure to try my favourite seasonal: the Pumpkin Porter. San Tan Brewery is also well worth a visit. Another favourite is Papago Brewery with their unusual (but delicious) Orange Blossom beer.
Phoenix has a number of major bar districts. The most popular of which are Downtown Scottsdale (Mondrian Hotel, the W Hotel, Axis-Radius), Mill Avenue (Rula Bula, Big Bang and Cue Club), and Downtown Phoenix (Boutique Bars, the Deuce, Luckystrike). Scottsdale tends to be more posh, while Mill Avenue is located right next to Arizona State University and more heavily student focused. Downtown Phoenix has a large mixture of small bars, pubs and clubs.
Stay: High-end hotel options include the Ritz Carlton and the Royal Palms Hotel which are conveniently located and offer excellent facilities. Sheraton Phoenix Downtown and the Westin Phoenix Downtown provide mid-range value. Looking for something budget friendly? The Radisson Hotel or one of the valley’s Best Westerns may be what you’re looking for . The city also has a number of near-by casinos located on the Indian reservation. These offer a variety of accommodation types. One of the newest is Casino Arizona.
Walk: What’s the one thing Arizona is short on? Public lakes! Luckily the large, manmade, Tempe Town Lake was created several years ago to help solve this problem. The result? A large lake located in the heart of Tempe, right next to the Mill Avenue district and Arizona State University. While shallow the lake offers a wealth of activities.
The greater Phoenix area has a reputation as a top-rated Golf destination. With several world-class courses and incredible year-round weather you’ll always find a wealth of options available.
Camelback Mountain is a popular hike among both locals and visitors. The view from the mountain offers a great vista of Phoenix’s landscape. The summit is at about 2,700 feet or 822 meters above sea level.
Ready for something more family or date friendly? Check out one of the city’s many water parks like Wet N’ Wild, two large outdoor zoos which are the Phoenix Zoo and Wildlife Zoo and Aquarium, or the city’s beautifully laid out Desert Botanical Garden.
Get out: Head north to Sedona to explore the city’s famous red rocks and possibly consider a Pink Jeep Tour before driving the gorgeous Oak Creek Canyon route to Flagstaff. Once in Flagstaff enjoy a bit of Route 66 trivia and consider a trip to famous Winslow Arizona.
Float the Salt River on a giant tube and escape from the summer heat a few miles outside of Phoenix via Salt River Tubing. Just be forewarned that this tends to have a very party-oriented atmosphere.
Have extra time and the willingness to do a few hours driving? Make sure not to miss Grand Canyon National Park. It is best accessed with an overnight in Flagstaff though guided tours are available from Phoenix.
Listen: Phoenix has a wonderful music scene that has something to offer everyone.
The Marquee Theatre and Clubhouse offer excellent opportunities for modern groups in a more cosy atmosphere. Another popular venue is the Ashley Furniture HomeStore Pavilion (formerly Cricket Pavilion).
Itching for some great Blues music? Check out the gritty Chars has the Blues.
Avoid: Arizona’s sweltering heat. The dry Arizona climate when combined with the region’s hot weather can leave visitors dehydrated. Always be careful to pack more water than you think you’ll need, especially when doing outdoor activities.
