Phoenix, Arizona: Urban Amenities and Desert Landscapes

Surrounded by the red mountains and sandy hills of the Sonoran Desert, Phoenix is an urban oasis in south-central Arizona. When you travel to Phoenix, having your car rental will come in handy whether you want to hit the city's cultural attractions or enjoy the local resort scene. Once you're comfortable navigating the Phoenix traffic, you can venture into the desert.

The Phoenix Art Museum collection has more than 18,000 pieces of art, which range from Renaissance classics to works from 20th-century masters. While this art museum is located in the heart of downtown Phoenix, visitors can drive 20 minutes north to explore the Musical Instrument Museum. Its collection includes 6,000 musical instruments, musical artifacts, and hours of rare concert footage.

Explore the Scenic Desert Landscapes

For the best views of Phoenix, head to Camelback Mountain, which is one of the highest peaks in the area. If you hike to the top, you'll get incredible city views.

Surrounding the city is the Sonoran Desert. Driving time to the open desert varies depending on your starting point in the city. If you're a nature aficionado, though, the travel time will surely be worth it.

Additional Outdoor Activities

You don't have to go for a hike to enjoy the Phoenix landscapes. The Phoenix Zoo is a popular destination for families; located about 15 minutes from the heart of the city, this 125-acre zoo has animals like Komodo dragons, Asian elephants, and tigers. To explore the native flora and fauna, head to the Desert Botanical Garden, which is home to cacti, flowers, and trees from across the world. The garden is located just a mile from the zoo.
