If you're flying from Seattle to Phoenix, you can expect a very different climate, whether you're visiting in the winter or summer. Phoenix is the heart of the southwest, and is located in the Sonoran Desert. Therefore a car is a must to explore this huge city, and the areas around it.
While renting a car is of great benefit in Phoenix, if you want to avoid high surcharges, take a cab to a rental agency outside of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX), and rent a car like a local.
You can now freely explore the desert city at your leisure. Phoenix is a big sports hub, and you can take in an MLB game at Chase Field, or a football game at the University of Phoenix Stadium. The NBA's Phoenix Suns also play at the Talking Stick Resort Arena.
Phoenix is filled with shops and things to do downtown. Visit the Phoenix Art Museum, take in a show at the Phoenix Theater, or visit the Desert Botanical Garden to learn about the unique ecosystem in the desert. Travelers will find most attractions are easily accessible by car.
The flight time between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) and Phoenix is two and a half hours in the air. Gate-to-gate time however is closer to three hours. SEA to PHX routes are one of the busiest the airport serves.
