You’ve decided to go somewhere warmer to experience what winter might be like without the icy chill, and you’re considering Phoenix. Congratulations! You’re one step closer to enjoying all the best things that life has to offer.
With its year-round sunshine, Phoenix is an obvious choice for a winter adventure, but don’t just take our word for it. Check out this list of five incredible reasons why Phoenix might be your ideal destination this snowy season.
1. Endless Sunshine
Arizona is known for its sunshine and warmth, and with good reason. On a cold winter’s day in Phoenix you might experience a slight frost on your windshield at 8:00 am – but that’s it.
With an average high of 67 degrees in the dead of winter, you can look forward to picnics in the park, dining al fresco, and riding around town with your sunroof wide open. It’s the perfect time to take a tour of the beautiful city and sample some of the world-class cuisine (on the patio, of course) before the summer heat returns.
2. An Optional Snow Fix
If you love the sunshine, but can’t imagine a winter without snow, don’t worry: The Arizona Snowbowl is only a three-hour drive away, and just seven miles north of Flagstaff.
With excellent skiing opportunities, snowy hiking trails, cozy lodges, and charming restaurants, this winter wonderland will offer you some cool nostalgia within a short distance of your warm Phoenix escape. It’s the best of both worlds!
3. Heavenly Hiking
Surrounded by mountainous terrain, the city is a dream hiking destination. Unlike summer temperatures in the desert which can make outdoor sports more demanding, winter temperatures mean you can stay out all day long and catch a sensational sunset.
Camelback Mountain is one of the most popular hiking destinations in Phoenix, with two trails for you to choose from: the Echo Canyon Trail and the Cholla Trail. Echo Canyon Trail is more difficult than the Cholla Trail, but both meet at the same summit with breathtaking city views. You can also explore Piestewa Peak and the easier trails of nearby Dreamy Draw.
4. Great Golfing
With comfortable temperatures ideal for long and leisurely games of golf, winter in Phoenix is the best time of year to check out the city’s famous golf courses. There’s something for every skill level and budget in this great city, including Stone Creek Golf Course, which is just a stone’s throw away from our luxury Aderra condos.
Winter also sees the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Between late January and early February each year, many of the big names in golf will be playing in what is widely known as “the greatest show on grass.” Golf-enthusiasts simply can’t miss it!
5. Incredible Culture
Phoenix is the sixth largest city in the United States and it shows! Winter is a fantastic time to take in the city’s extensive cultural offerings, from the museums and outdoor shopping to the farmers markets and special events.
History buffs will love the Annual Arizona Renaissance Festival, which takes place each February. For a stunning winter light show that art-lovers will adore, visit Phoenix Zoo or the Lights of the World Lantern Festival – the largest light show in North America.
The Desert Botanical Garden is another great spot during the colder season. Las Noches de Las Luminarias lets you enjoy the Sonoran Desert among thousands of hand-lit lights, while February marks the start of the spring bloom season.
It doesn’t take long to see that winter can be just as magical in the warm sunshine.
