There are many places one could travel to during those rare times off when we can travel and leave the worries of modern life behind us for a bit.

However, you’ll discover that few places can offer the variety of activities to be had in winter and spring as Phoenix, Arizona. Also, few places offer the chance to enjoy all your favorite outdoors activities even in the middle of winter! So, in you are looking to choose and plan your next vacation and adventure, make sure you continue reading on and discover our ultimate guide to winter and spring fun stuff to do in Phoenix!
Exploration in the Desert
One of the biggest draws of the area is the near constant warm weather which allows you to explore the natural world no matter the season. For instance, one can enjoy some good old-fashioned hiking by heading out to Camelback, which remains one of the most popular hikes in the area! You’ll find that while this trail is short, it can be quite difficult due to the intense elevation gain. However, the views at top are truly what draws hundreds of thousands of people a year. Upon standing at its peak, you’ll be gifted with breathtaking views of the surrounding urban landscape stretching out before you. One can also head over to the Sunrise Trail to enjoy a 4.9-mile point-to-point trail that features a variety of different views that are sure to make you disappointed upon having to turn back. At the summit you’ll find panoramic views of the surrounding natural landscapes, including the Superstition wilderness, Fountain Hills, and even the peaks of the nearby McDowell range! One could properly explore the wilderness as well by heading on over to REI Co-op Adventure Center. Featuring a variety of different tours that are perfect for all skill levels, you’ll find everything from walking tours to kayaking ones, to even paddleboard tours. As well, one can find classes such as yoga if one is looking to truly relax.
Of course, besides the natural world, you’ll discover a variety of urban activities and fun stuff to do in Phoenix that is no less exciting and enjoyable. For instance, one can have both a dinner and show by heading on over to the Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament held by your “queen.” Enjoy watching as the knights take each other on and fight for honor and your admiration. You’ll even get to enjoy watching live shows with animals and even equine entertainers, all while enjoying a four-course meal featuring garlic bread, tomato bisque soup, roasted chicken, sweet buttered corn, and more!
One could also enjoy the fun of indoor skydiving by heading over to iFly. Not only will you get to float aloft by their wind tunnel but will also receive a crash course in the basics of skydiving. After, one can enjoy relaxing with a good drink and cigar by heading over to Fox Cigar Bar Scottsdale which features one of Arizona largest walk-in humidifiers! Not only do they offer a wide range of excellent cigars, and not only do they offer a comfortable and sophisticated environment to relax, but also have a bar stocked with over 400 spirits and 14 rotating taps to ensure no matter what you are craving, you can find the drink for you.
One could also spend the day enjoy the plethora of different golf courses that litter the area. For instance, enjoy Troon North, which offers two 18-hole courses in the shadow of Pinnacle Park (which also offers spectacular hiking and other activities) and which truly looks as if you stepped into an oasis to practice your swing.
