Holiday In Phoenix

Ah, the Arizona desert. Home of Phoenix, beacon for tumbleweed enthusiasts and Latin for the phrase “middle of nowhere” (OK, we made the last one up. Or did we?).

If you’re up for an arid adventure, a Phoenix holiday may be right up your alley.

While this capital city doesn’t own any beachfront property, it’s a hiker’s heaven and oasis of art and science. Plus, you can down enough locally-crafted brew to become something of a beer connoisseur in no time. Book your hotel and flight together with one of lastminute.com.au’s Phoenix packages and set out on a desert adventure!

Things to Do in Phoenix

With soaring summer temperatures and chilly winter nights, you might have something of a love-hate relationship with the climate in the Valley of the Sun. But whether you’re braving the winter chill or sweating like a trophy wife in a spelling bee, you can find plenty of things to do in Phoenix. Locals love to hike the paths of Camelback Mountain and the Superstition Mountains, among other trails. If it’s hot out, leave your ale at the hotel and stick to H2O. Actually, you always do that for a hike.

Just when a holiday in Phoenix has you inventing new ways to sop up your, shall we say, glistening skin, the city hits you with chances to get inside and cool down. Take advantage of the air conditioning at places such as the Heard Museum, SEA LIFE Arizona and Arizona Science Center. You’ll want to check out cool indoor venues like Butterfly Wonderland. And hey, the winter months are a great time to challenge your buddies to a game of golf, or throw your credit card limit to the wind and book a ton of spa treatments.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Phoenix’s shopping scene celebrates major designers and up-and-coming brands. We know saving big on your flight and hotel with a Phoenix package is going to leave some cash burning a hole in the old pocket. Go ahead, spend it at Scottsdale Fashion Square or downtown boutiques.

Phoenix has plenty of authentic Mexican food spots where there’s no way around it, you’re just going to get your hands dirty (and like it). But award-winning chefs often serve fine grub here too, often using locally-sourced ingredients. Downtown Phoenix and Old Town Scottsdale are hotbeds for superb kitchens, and you can never go wrong at a Phoenix steakhouse.

If you’re not too knackered from hiking to explore the nightlife in PHX, take thee to central Phoenix, where you will find yourself in the heart of the craft brew scene. Downtown is a haven for live music lovers, and Scottsdale will feel like home if you’re into wine bars and swanky lounges.

What’s Next?

Book one of the top lastminute.com.au Phoenix package deals at a stellar price, and you’ll be packing your hiking boots in no time. In addition to saving on flights and hotels, you can also book Phoenix car rentals to get from mountain trail to spa retreat in minutes!
