Located less than an hour from Phoenix, Fountain Hills is a relaxed destination for getaways with family, friends, or both. Surrounded by mountains and desert, and boasting one of the world's tallest fountains, it's a great spot to experience amazing Arizona without the hassle of big crowds.

Things to do

Fountain Hills offers plenty of family fun

Looking for a way to entertain the kids? You'll find a bucket load of options within a scenic drive of your Fountain Hills vacation rental. Animal lovers can head to the OdySea Aquarium, the southwest's largest aquarium, or meet the somewhat wilder inhabitants of the vast Phoenix Zoo. You might fancy spending the morning at the Desert Botanical Garden, a 140-acre space where meandering trails are strewn with colorful wildflowers, or perhaps the Arizona heat will see you cooling down at the Big Surf Waterpark Tempe, a family-friendly spot where attractions include twisting serpentine slides and the Waikiki Beach Wave Pool.


Arts and culture in Fountain Hills

With around 150 pieces of public art proudly displayed throughout Fountain Hills, artistic types should have no problem getting their fix. You might start with the Centennial Circle Art Walk, check out the popular sculpture garden, or visit the former presidents in Fountain Park's Fount Rushmore, and if you're visiting between November and February, there's the bonus of being able to register for a docent-led tour. Craving a little more culture? Catching a performance at the elegant Fountain Hills Theatre can be a lovely way to round off the day before heading back to your vacation rental.


Shake off the winter in Fountain Hills

Fountain Hills vacation rentals are at their most popular between November and April when temperatures glide between the upper 60s and the low 80s, and sunny days provide an idyllic setting for hitting the fairways at the award-winning SunRidge Canyon Golf Course. Should you find yourself celebrating St. Patrick's Day here, there's the added wonder of watching the iconic fountain turn a brilliant shade of green. Stays in May through October are not out of the question but you'll need to weigh up the advantage of great rental deals against dealing with summer temperatures that regularly soar past 100 degrees.
