Let the great outdoors be your guide to the best of the Southwest in Phoenix, because even when temps spike, there’s a multitude of activities.
Most visitors come for the weather, and for golf, in greater and downtown Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe and near the Apache Trail. Phoenix is widely considered one of the best spots for a spa trip, and there are dozens of outstanding desert-inspired spas, primarily housed in 4- and 5-star hotels. Study the menus before booking to see which spa offers the most treatments you are interested in.
Similarly, many of the top golf courses can be found at these luxurious resorts. To save money consider visiting in shoulder season, the months around the peak winter season, or look for twilight tee times at the golf course. Many Major League Baseball teams also host their spring trainings in late winter.
