With all the Super Bowl festivities gone, taking visitors with them, downtown Phoenix is quiet once again.
However, this past week of football madness left a trail, beginning at the Grand Canyon rock wall and ending in the public eye. With Phoenix now posing as a tourist destination, what does that mean for the travelers?
Coming to Phoenix has perks aside from the fantastic weather and sports complexes (because it’s impossible to exclude either from the “perks” list). Here are some must-see and must-dos in the downtown area:
Hike Camelback. The locals love it, and you probably will too. It’s a three-hour hike, easy-to-medium in difficulty, with a fantastic view of the Phoenix Valley at the top.
Drink local coffee because we know how to brew well. With dozens of local coffee houses around the Roosevelt district, you don’t have to walk far to find some.
Enjoy the arts downtown. Between Symphony Hall, the Herberger Theatre, First Fridays and the arts district, and the Art Museum, there’s so much going on in the world of art.
Watch the sunset from the top of South Mountain, or enjoy over dessert at the Compass Room. We’re known for them… it’s even on our state flag.
Enjoy live music in several places across the valley, namely in Tempe Marketplace, The Nash, Crescent Ballroom and more.
Enjoy your stay in Phoenix!
