The Sonoran Desert offers up a fantastic number of hiking trails and outdoor activities. Or, scale the heights at Camelback Mountain, which will provide awe inspiring views of the city and surrounding desert. South Mountain Park is the largest municipal park in the world, where you can enjoy hiking, biking and horseback riding below the desert sun.
Nature is also available right in town. See the vivid colors of the desert’s flora at the Desert Botanical Garden, or visit some local fauna at the Phoenix Zoo. Admire the huge collection of Native American Art on display at the Heard Museum and witness the lifestyles of the past at the Pioneer Arizona Living History Museum, with exhibits and artifacts that will take you back to the early settler days. The Musical Instrument Museum is an auditory delight, while the gleaming white walls of St. Mary’s Basilica are sure to have you reaching for your camera. The ruins at Pueblo Grande are similarly picturesque, while the quirky “Mystery Castle” is a local treasure that is sure to please.
Whether getting out and exploring or just chasing the sun, you’ll be thrilled with the comfort and convenience of one of our IHG hotels in Phoenix. Friendly staff and cozy rooms make for the perfect place to rest your head after a long day of adventure.
