Phoenix, Arizona Professional Review and Guide
"Phoenix lures you with much more than golf, although the area’s green fairways and those in nearby Scottsdale offer some of the best putting and driving anywhere. But in the city, and just beyond, the legends and colors of the Sonoran Desert beckon with Native American lore, pastel bluffs and buttes, and bold red mountains.
Nearby on the Salt River Indian Reservation, the trails fill with the green of creosote against wheat-colored rocks and with the scent of sagebrush. Phoenix is an especially charming winter getaway with mild temperatures—no record-breaking summer highs—and a palette of colors and textures to soothe a dreary winter soul. This eTrail is a complete vacation written with families in mind. It’s loaded with exciting things to do, family-friendly places to lodge and dine, recommended side trips, local sources of information, and detailed travel directions."
