Phoenix overview

Phoenix, the largest city in the southwest of Arizona, is surrounded by the vast Sonoran Desert. The landscape and the climate invite you to outdoor activities and excursions that range from rugged adventure to lofting in hot-air balloons to bus tours.

The name of the city, Phoenix, acknowledges its rise from the ashes of the long-vanished Hohokam peoples, who had developed an elaborate and complex irrigation network. The ancient Indian village is now a major metropolitan area and, when combined with neighbouring towns, the nation’s third-largest silicon valley.

Whilst booking flights to Phoenix and organising the trip, adventurous travellers should also add a few side trips to their itinerary. One trip that can’t be missed is a few days exploring the Apache Trail. Just an hour’s drive east of Phoenix this winding gravel road is dotted with some interesting attractions including the Lost Dutchman State Park, the Goldfield Mining Town (a ghost town) and Canyon Lake which is perfect for camping and picnicking.

Getting around Phoenix

You’ll need a car to get around Phoenix. Parking is free outside of the city centre, although it may take you a while to find a spot in Old Scottsdale or popular shopping areas. Make sure you read the fine print when you’re renting your car. Taxes and surcharges can increase your rental rate by nearly 50 per cent. Get around town for free on the city’s Downtown Area Shuttle (DASH) service. These free buses cover the city centre routes during the week from 6:30am to 5:30pm. DASH is meant for city commuters, not tourists, but the buses do go by Heritage Square and the Arizona Capitol Museum. The public buses, Valley Metro, are more useful for commuters than it is for tourists.

Getting from the Airport to the City

The main airport in Phoenix is Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX). There is a very efficient public transport system operating from the airport including the Sky Train running 24 hours a day.
