Hire a car in Phoenix
Despite its fiery hot temperatures, Phoenix is a cool and relaxing escape.
Located in the Sonoran Desert and basking under the unyielding sunshine, America’s fifth largest city appears as if was built on a collection of gold courses, high-end resorts and spas. But the “Valley of the Sun” also offers a hefty slice of culture, with its massive art museum, and sport (yes, even this desert city has an ice hockey team).
But it's what lies beyond Arizona’s capital that truly makes it a superb destination. A road trip to the Grand Canyon is a must and for anyone interested in history, the ancient indigenous site of Mesa Grande is only a short drive away.
Sights to see
Phoenix is undoubtedly a fascinating city, a vibrant and unique human settlement in the middle of the desert. State capital of Arizona, Phoenix providers a great variety of attractions, ensuring that it’s visitors and inhabitants alike are never short of things to see and do.
Things to do
You definitely need more than a day to experience Phoenix. Make sure you’re not in a rush and assign at least a few days to exploring this amazing city. Spend the first day exploring Phoenix’s downtown, beginning with a stroll down Roosevelt Road - the middle of the city’s creative hub. You will be tempted to stop in some of the many top restaurants, cafes and design stores, not to mention the galleries that host hip cultural events. Head to Cobra Arcade Bar for a thoroughly American evening, with a huge variety of vintage arcade games to choose from and great selection of beers and video game-inspired cocktails. If you’re a true foodie, you might want to try the crab-stuffed chicken from The Arrogant Butcher- you won’t regret it.
Keep walking and you’ll reach the historic districts of Phoenix where you can admire various architectural styles including Beaux-Arts and Art- Deco. Don’t forget to catch a photo in front of the Orpheum Theatre - the place to be in the 40s and 50s amongst celebrities and thrill-seekers.
As you’re in Phoenix, you must visit at least one of its fantastic museums. Visit Heard Museum to take a walk through its Native American history, finding out about tribes, traditions and important historical events. Another great museum, but this time in the open air, is the Desert Botanical Garden. Go there to see extraordinary plants that grow in the most harsh climate conditions. We guarantee you’ve never seen so many different kinds of cactus in one place!
Get ready to hit the road. A short (by American standards!) 3.5-hour drive to the Grand Canyon should certainly be added to your ever-growing to-do list. This natural wonder will certainly provide you with a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will stay with you forever. The landscape is absolutely striking, but don’t let the view stop you from enjoying a hike below the rim. For brave explorers, there are daily helicopter tours taking you through the Grand Canyon where you can admire the fabulous view from above. Aim to catch the sunrise or the sunset for the perfect holiday memory.
Still in the mood for nature? Don’t think twice before heading to Papago Park, just a stone’s throw from the Desert Botanical Garden. If you have a mountain bike, bring it with you as the sandstone relief is perfect for a ride.Tombstone is another great day trip idea and very well-kept relic of the American West. Wandering downtown, you will be taken back in time, in the midst of the gunfights at OK Corall and the Gold Rush fever. You will be able to visit the saloons, a well-preserved post office and other authentic buildings.
Time flies when you’re in Phoenix, so rent a car with easyCar to make sure you don’t miss a thing.
