Phoenix
— 2 nights

days
Phoenix

Phoenix is the capital, and largest city, of the state of Arizona. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Boyce Thompson Arboretum and Horseback Riding Tours. Step out of Phoenix with an excursion to Taliesin West in Scottsdale--about 36 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Musical Instrument Museum, get engrossed in the history at Heard Museum, take in nature's colorful creations at Desert Botanical Garden, and explore and take pictures at Chase Field.

For where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, read our Phoenix tour planner.

August in Phoenix sees daily highs of 106°F and lows of 85°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
