Phoenix is a wonderful choice for families looking for a warm winter destination. Commonly referred to as the “Valley of the Sun”, Phoenix rarely disappoints, as it averages 300 sunny days a year.
The museum houses over 300 hands-on exhibits for children and adults to explore. The Center features live science demonstrations, a planetarium, IMAX theatre, a Skycycle, the W.O.N.D.E.R. center, and so much more.
It is an interactive habitat where over 3,000 butterflies fly freely through a rainforest garden, and families love it!
From the Noodle Forest, to the Art Studio, to the amazing play structure known as the Schuff-Perini Climber, no child should complain of boredom during their visit. There are a lot of hands-on activities and interactive exhibits.
There are places to hike and bike all over the Valley, but some of the best outdoor activities in Phoenix (and most enjoyable) for families will be found at South Mountain Park or Papago Park.
The Greater Phoenix Area is home to Major League Baseball’s Cactus League and Spring Training is a big deal here.
Children and adults alike love to visit to the railroad park in Scottsdale. There are model railroads, trains to ride around the park, a train museum, a carousel, and playgrounds.
To get a close up view of the desert, consider going off road in a Pink Jeep Tour. The nearest location is in Sedona, two hours away, but the tour is worth it.
While this resort may see its fair share of conference-goers, it is the perfect place for families with an excellent location in Scottsdale, generous sized rooms, and beautiful pools.
