When to visit

The best time to visit Phoenix is in the winter (December to February) or in spring (March to May). This is when the weather is the most temperate, the desert is in bloom and you’re able to take advantage of all the outdoor adventures Arizona is known for and still enjoy plenty of sunshine. Phoenix comes alive during these months, with locals venturing out and about after six months of being in the air conditioning. Arizona is a world-class golf destination and the PGA Tour comes to Scottsdale in winter. The temperatures during the summer can reach higher than 40°C. Foodies will love the fall with Arizona Restaurant Week in September. Over 100 restaurants participate across the Valley—offering special pricing and menu items.
