Like a mythical bird rising from the ashes, Phoenix is a city that’s constantly reinventing itself. Innovative and unique mom-and-pop establishments rule and renew the culinary scene. The Desert Botanical Garden brings new life into being each season, and the Phoenix Art Museum, Phoenix Opera, and Talking Stick Arena keep the arts scene kicking with world-class exhibits and performances.
Sure, 300 annual days of sunshine make it easy to appreciate the city’s many oases. And by oases, we mean golf courses—there are more here than you could play in a dozen visits. Of course, dedicated locals can do all 200 or so in a year. Join them for an extended stay in our Phoenix vacation rentals and get to know this refreshing city like you were (re)born here.
The TPC Phoenix Open brings links fans from all over the world to Scottsdale to watch the pros finesse that ball into each hole. Locals know they can try their own club at the same course (minus the “Coliseum” of cheering fans at the 16th, known as the loudest hole in golf). With the suite-like accommodations at Scottsdale Villa Mirage by Diamond Resorts, you’ll be able to lay your head down just minutes away.
Believe it or not, Phoenix is a hotspot of agriculture due to its location on the Salt and Verde Rivers. When settlers arrived here, they found remnants of a thriving native city, which you can learn about yourself at the Heard Museum. Additionally, you could head out to the Phoenix Sonoran Preserve to explore the landscape they lived in. Stay at Vista Retreat Vacation Home and you’ll be just minutes from your own home away from home, complete with your own full-size kitchen.
Experience Phoenix like a local when you stay at Travelocity’s vacation rentals. It’s like having your own private desert oasis.
