Phoenix, Things To Do

Dec 3, 2012 - Get Artsy in Phoenix

Phoenix Arizona, also known as Valley of the Sun is located in the northeastern reaches of the Sonoran Desert, Phoenix has a subtropical desert climate. In summer, average high temperatures are typically over 100 °F (38 °C) so, you will be thankful to be using a large, air-conditioned charter bus rental during your bus tour vacation.

Because of this, one of the best ways to get to Phoenix is by booking a bus rental package as you can rest assured that your ride will be in tip top mechanical condition, with the air conditioner working and the driving will all be handled by a professional driver, allowing you to sit back and enjoy the ride.

Although winter is here, the weather is still scorching in Phoenix and that might just be the reason for many people visiting – to get away from the cold. But that doesn’t mean nothing to do except sit under the shade and drink tequila.

Visit the Fourth Annual Mesa Arts & Crafts Festival (MACFest) Season that for the 2012--2013 season events will be held on the first and third (1st & 3rd) Saturdays of each month, from October 2012 through to April 2013.
