Experience Phoenix from vacation home rentals

Situated in Arizona's Valley of the Sun and serving as the state capital, Phoenix is known for its perfect year-round weather—assuming, of course, that your vision of perfect weather includes hot and sunny.

It doesn't matter how you fill your time, because when the weather is this ideal, time in your Phoenix vacation rental will move just a little bit slower than it does anywhere else on earth.

Activities

What to do near Phoenix vacation homes

Thanks to the consistently nice weather, outdoor activities are king in Phoenix, whether it's hiking, biking, or golfing. Hit the trails at Piestewa Peak or Camelback Mountain, and if you feel daring enough, pay respects to the The Praying Monk rock formation. Take a hot air balloon ride for views from above, or stay grounded and hit a few rounds of golf at 1 of the upscale courses nearby. Cap it all off with an afternoon of shopping or an evening of drinks downtown, or sneak away for some adults-only time at the spa.

Weather

Climate for your trip to Phoenix vacation homes

Arizona boasts hot weather for most of the year, with temps in the 90s and 100s from late spring through early fall. Low humidity keeps things bearable, but travelers averse to intense heat may be happier in November through March, when the mercury drops to the 60s and 70s. With an average of only 8 inches of rain and 36 wet days per year, Phoenix is a fabulous winter sun destination. Spring and autumn bring pleasant days with cooler nights, so consider a Phoenix vacation rental in April or October.

Natural features

Stick to downtown if you prefer avoiding rattlesnakes

Nestled in the Salt River Valley in south central Arizona, Phoenix is largely comprised of flat, desert terrain. It's set against the dramatic backdrop of the Phoenix Mountains Preserve, which includes the summits of both Piestewa Peak and Camelback Mountain. The preserve offers an easy escape from the city, as do the lakes and the Superstition Mountains bordering Phoenix to the east. These areas also offer visitors the promise of getting up close and personal with local wildlife, including tortoises and rattlesnakes. Hikers and bikers, beware!
