Why Visit Phoenix?
Phoenix is red rock mountain trails, blue skies and mural covered streets. It is 300 days of sunshine a year, the cosmopolital heart of Arizona, a soulful city with so many unexpected surprises to offer its visitors. Discover what Phoenix has to offer with cheap holidays from Dublin with Budget Travel USA.
Phoenix is a city that makes the most of the unique history and desert landscape providing visitors with delights like the Heard Museum where you can learn about the history, life, arts and culture of Native American tribes in the Southwest known as one of the best museums of its kind in America.
If you are lucky enough to travel during the Christmas season there is the Cityskate Holiday Ice Rink located on downtown Phoenix’s Central Avenue which would be a great activity for families or couples which runs from late November to mid-January each year.
If you want to get a real taste of Phoenix there’s no better way to do it than hiking up Camelback mountain, a beautiful canyon hike which once at the top offers you spectacular views of the city. Prefer something less strenuous? See some of the flora and fauna native to Phoenix in the Desert Botanical Gardens, a lovely place to spend a sunny afternoon.
Food and Restaurants
Phoenix harbours some fantastic culinary delights that stray away from the usual Southern comfort food, Arizona flavours are sourced from surrounding fields and local farms to give you the freshest flavours around. One of our favourite places to feast is at Quiessence at The Farm, a no children spot set in a tiny renovated home at the far end of The Farm at South Mountain, try their tasting menu for a sample of every European inspired delight on the menu.
If you want to head somewhere a little more relaxed, Short Leash Hotdogs, which stemmed from a gourmet food truck, serves a unique twist on an American favourite, simple and straightforward their Hot Dogs are made from all natural ingredients and are the best you’ll find this side of the Atlantic.
