Springtime in Arizona is simply delightful. With daytime temps in the 80s that dip to moderate 60s come evening, the amazing Arizona weather and arid climate are perfect for any activity you might have planned. Even better, this state averages over 300 days of sunshine, so there’s very little chance it will rain on your vacation parade.
At Holiday Rental, we welcome people from all over to plan their stays at one of our Scottsdale luxury vacation homes. You’ll be close to plenty of activities and thriving districts with ample shopping, dining, and nightlife – including Old Town Scottsdale. Let’s envision your options for sightseeing in AZ.
Verde Valley Wine Trail Tour
If your idea of a glorious vacation includes indulging in the fruit of the vines, you’ll want to spend a day on the Verde Valley Wine Trail. Stop at one of the amazing wineries along the trail to sample some buttery Chardonnay or robust Cabernet. Whether you’re a seasoned sommelier or a novice to wine tasting, you’ll be enchanted by the offerings. Multiple wineries can be found in Jerome, Clarkdale, Cottonwood, Page Springs, and Sedona. Plan a wine-tasting adventure to suit your palate and get ready to sip away.
Famous for its red-rock formations, Sedona is rapidly becoming recognized as a vacation destination. The best part is that it’s only two hours north of Scottsdale and the modern vacation homes located there. In addition to the natural wonders this region offers, you’ll want to reserve time to explore the 89A shopping district with everything from unique boutiques to art galleries – not to mention exquisite restaurants where you can grab a bite and experience local cuisine. Stop by Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village, known for Native American art and wearables, or rent a jeep for off-road exploration.
Would a trip to Arizona be complete without a tour of the expansive Grand Canyon? We think not. The South Rim is a short distance from Phoenix and Scottsdale, with numerous overlooks to take in the breathtaking depth of this natural wonder. If you’re up for a hike, there are plenty of trails to suit any ability. Hermit Road offers a scenic drive if you’d prefer to peruse the area from your vehicle. Of course, there are multiple helicopter tours if you desire a more daring overview. People looking to learn about the region will appreciate the Geological Museum at Grand Canyon National Park. You might even take in a film on the canyon at the IMAX theater located in the park.
Have a break from the arid heat and visit Payson, located in Central Arizona, at the base of Mongollon Rim. Experience two different climates 30 miles in either direction. The tall Ponderosa Pine forests will delight you from 7,500 feet at Mongollon Rim, just north of Payson. Visit Tonto National Forest and take a dip in the crystal clear mountain lakes. Head south and you’ll be in the midst of the desert. Boaters will love Roosevelt Lake, which is just south of the Payson area as well. The unique forest-meets-desert experience is not the only attraction in this adorable town. Visit the historic district lined with antique shops, art galleries, and dining options galore.
History buffs! Gather your troops and head north to Flagstaff, where you’ll witness the Walnut Canyon National Monument and Wupatki National Monument, as well as other notable sites. Be amazed by the 900-year-old cinder cone found at the Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument. The wide-open desert sky allows stargazers to pick out their favorite celestial bodies at the Lowell Observatory. Hikers will not be disappointed with the trail options around the area, including those found at Coconino National Forest. Don’t forget to stop along Route 66, where Flagstaff’s historic district is located. Pop in to Monte Vista, a haunted hotel, if you dare, and check into Room 305 for a paranormal experience.
