  • Perfect Spring Break Getaway

    "We stayed at this property with two other families. Just the right size for some privacy (per family) and a lot of room for kids to have fun and run around. The outdoor entertainment was perfect for kids and adults! Lots to do while we were at the house and close to highways to get to all the other activities we had planned around Phoenix. The owner was quick to respond when we had one problem and fixed it right away. It was the perfect choice for us for Spring Break - our kids want to go back next year!"

Arizona Travel Tips

Major Attractions near Arizona Vacation Rentals

Perhaps the most well known of Arizona’s attractions is the Grand Canyon which runs through the northwestern corner of the state. This vast national park has numerous viewing points along the canyon rim. There are several hiking trails that can be explored on foot; however, visitors are cautioned to be adequately equipped with sun protection, maps and sufficient water before setting off on the trails. Aerial flights in helicopters and small fixed wing aircraft can be booked from either Flagstaff or Las Vegas.

There are many historical centers in Arizona. Old pioneer towns and ghost towns tell stories of their own. Museums record the culture and history of the Old West and the early pioneering days. There are many historical landmarks including Spanish Missions and art deco court houses. The Air and Space Museum is a great place to visit if you have an interest in aircraft. There are also relics of old forts dating back to the days of the Indian Wars.

Arizona is home to many top-quality golf courses. The warm year-round climate and wide open spaces make it an ideal golfing vacation destination. There are more than 300 gold courses where you can challenge your skills. Most are located in and around the major cities of Phoenix, Flagstaff, Lake Havasu and Tucson. If traveling in the hot summer months, you can often benefit from reduced green fees.

Arizona is a destination that has many outdoor activities available. In the cold winter months, the mountain regions become a snow skiing paradise. Top-class ski resorts have ski runs for all levels of skiing ability and many are equipped with snowboarding terrain parks. One of the best ways to explore the countryside is the traditional way -- in the saddle. Horseback excursions are offered by a number of local outfitters. Mountain biking is another popular pastime, especially in the mountain areas. In the western parts of Arizona, the lakes and rivers provide lots of opportunities to enjoy a wide range of water sports.

Visitors to Arizona Cabins

Arizona attracts visitors with a wide range of interests. Some come merely to enjoy the starkly contrasting landscapes and warmer climate. Golf is a big attraction, especially considering the best time to play in Arizona is during the cooler winter months. There are many historic sites and museums for people who have an interest in pioneer and western culture and history.

Getting to Arizona Vacation Homes

The primary airport in Arizona is located in Phoenix. The Sky Harbor International Airport hosts flights from all over North America as well as from Central America and the Caribbean. There are regular commercial flights from most major cities in the United States. Tucson serves as a secondary airport and hosts a wide range of domestic and regional carriers.

Best Time of Year to Travel to Arizona

Most people think that Arizona’s climate is typically hot and dry. It does, however, vary quite distinctly between the different regions in Arizona. The state has two different climatic areas -- the south and central desert plains and the northern mountainous areas. The mountain areas are typically colder and enjoy good snowfalls in the winter months. Summers are milder and more temperate which make it easier to enjoy some of the outdoor activities on offer. The central and southern regions experience very hot summers which is where Arizona as a whole probably got its reputation from for having a hot and dry climate. Tucson and Phoenix are both located in this region. In the winter months, visitors can still enjoy warm daytime temperatures as it only gets colder as the sun sets.
