2. Plan A Staycation

If you want a more private experience, book with hotels and resorts around Arizona. There are plenty of places to stay in both Phoenix and Tucson with pools to lounge around and restaurants to try. More often than not, you’ll find that these resorts also offer special summer deals so you can save on your staycation experience.

3. Explore Ice Cream Flavors

Keep yourself cool by indulging in some ice cream. Try Sweet Republic (with branches in Phoenix, Scottsdale, and even Phoenix Sky Harbor) and Frost Gelato in Tucson. If there were a perfect time to explore new ice cream flavors, it would be summertime in Arizona!

4. Hike in the Moonlight

Take a break from the heat of the sun and experience a hike under the moonlight. The Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department offers flashlight-guided tours, allowing you to see the beauty of Arizona’s nature by the light of the moon. Cave Creek Regional Park is a particularly great option for evening hikes with friends.

5. Visit Bars and Restaurants

If you’re simply looking to unwind for the night, there are numerous bars and restaurants that are worth checking out in Phoenix and Tucson. Bring your family to try out some of Arizona’s best Taco Tuesday spots, or meet with friends for brunch and drinks. You’ll never run out of spots to visit in Arizona, and with the help of convenient transportation, you’ll have no problem getting around.

With so many places to go and activities to do in Arizona, you can definitely make this summer a memorable one. Whether you’re planning one activity or more, you can make the choice to get around comfortably with reliable transportation.
