Top 41 Things to do in Phoenix, Arizona

Presiding just about exactly in the middle of nowhere, Phoenix is a desert city in Arizona with more to offer than cacti and mountain views. The landscape here is riddled with golf courses, trails, and lots of parkland. On top of outdoor activities, which can be difficult to enjoy in the summer heat, there are fun things to do in Phoenix indoors all year round. Go to the Phoenix Art Museum, spend your day at a rejuvenating spa, or savor some vino at a local winery. Any way you cut it, the attractions in Phoenix make a visit here worth the trek through the desert.
