Phoenix's perpetual sunshine might tempt you to find a secluded resort and spend all your days sipping margaritas next to the swimming pool. Don't give in. Exploring our city and finding things to do in Phoenix's desert horizons will broaden yours.

Experience the Culture

Get Outdoors

Phoenix is located in one of the lushest and most colorful deserts in the world, and rugged mountains define the city's horizon. Enveloped by such breathtaking scenery, outdoor enthusiasts who visit Phoenix usually come to the same conclusion as coyote pups and jackrabbits: The Sonoran Desert is a great place to play.

  • In fall and winter, sunshine warms hiking and biking trails. Visit our outdoor activities page for tips on safely exploring the desert.
  • In spring, blooming cactuses and wildflowers carpet hillsides and valleys.
