Picture-perfect weather to match a picture-perfect setting

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. Spend your day at 1 of the luxury spas in the area, or out on 1 of the many stunning golf courses. 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.

Tee off on the golf course or doze off on the massage table

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.

Fact*: AZ has more museums than rainy days (*100% made up)

Phoenix is full of museums well worth exploring, from the Phoenix Zoo to the Arizona Science Center to the Children's Museum of Phoenix, which features interactive and engaging exhibits for kids. Travelers looking for a more traditional experience will enjoy the Phoenix Art Museum or the Musical Instrument Museum, or even a visit to the Desert Botanical Garden. This spot is known for its ornate displays of cacti and other native plants, so you can plan to impress your travel buddies with your newfound knowledge back at your Phoenix vacation rental.

As the locals say, "at least it's a dry heat"

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.

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!
