Your Phoenix vacation
Phoenix vacations are great if you like to explore the mysteries of the desert. It's also a fun place for spring mountain bike riding and hiking. In fact, the Summit Trail at Piestewa Peak is one of the most popular hiking destinations in America. As the capital of Arizona, Phoenix has many historic landmarks and museums. Even though Phoenix gets incredibly hot in the summer, it's a great place to get wet at water parks or in the Salt River. The largest and newest water park in town is called Wet 'n' Wild Phoenix, which is very popular during Spring Break.
Best Time to Go
You will enjoy Phoenix vacations much better outside the summer months, unless you enjoy extreme heat. Phoenix is a desert with subtropical climate, and is easily the hottest major city in America, hitting 100 degrees nearly a third of the year. But winters can be cold in Phoenix, dipping below 40 degrees in January. December through February are usually the only cold months, while March and April have the most comfortable weather. The closest regular winter snow is in Flagstaff, Arizona.
