Soak up the sun in Glendale

Boasting almost 300 sunny days a year, Glendale is not the kind of place to go sans sunscreen. Many people consider the highs of over 100° between June and August a little too hot to handle, finding that November through April – the so-called snowbird season – offers a more comfortable stay. That said, if you can cope with the heat over the summer months, you can pick from a wider choice of Glendale vacation rentals. Prices are typically a little lower too, although it will pay to book early if you have your heart set on a home with a pool.

For many vacationers, it’s all about the desert views and these are best experienced at the Thunderbird Conservation Park in Hedgepeth Hills, a 1,185-acre space where mountain biking and hiking are among the many ways to burn off excess energy. If you want to put a name to the desert flowers you’ll see on your travels, the Xeriscape Botanical Gardens has all the answers, but if family fun tops your must-do list, Sahuaro Ranch Park offers everything from volleyball to rose gardens, not to mention majestic roaming peacocks.
