Vacation rentals in Phoenix
If you are looking for an apartment or holiday home, you will find what you are looking for in the central parts of the city, which are much greener and more airy than comparable districts in metropolises such as New York or Los Angeles. The Encanto Village and Camelback Village neighbourhoods, as well as the Piestra Peak Park to the north, are particularly attractive. Alternatively, those seeking peace and quiet are drawn to the picturesque banks of the Salt River. Regardless of which location you choose, you benefit from the upscale facilities and the fact that most accommodations have their own property with pool.
Holiday in Phoenix
Travelers and Activities
Phoenix is the ideal starting point for extensive discovery tours into the rugged wilderness of Arizona. Thanks to Camelback Mountain, Papago Park, Piestewa Peak and the bizarre rock formations "Hole-in-the-Rock" there is definitely no shortage of excursion destinations. But also within the city limits there is more than enough to see with the Phoenix Zoo, the Arizona Science Center, the OdySea Aquarium, the Butterfly Wonderland and countless museums.
Things to know
For Central Europeans, the desert climate in Phoenix is difficult to endure, especially in midsummer. After all, the daily highs between May and September are between 34 and 41 degrees Celsius. Accordingly, the best travel period is the "milder" months of October to April. Then an average of eight hours of sunshine per day will still provide temperatures between 19 and 31 degrees Celsius.
Phoenix is supposed to have his name from the pioneer Darrell Duppa. He saw the ancient ruins of the Hohokam natives and believed that a new civilization would emerge from these ruins like Phoenix from the ashes.

Whether archery, tomahawk throwing, lasso throwing or real duels at lunchtime. No wishes are left unfulfilled here.3. Experience adrenaline rush in Castles N'Coasters Park
A visit to Castles N'Coaster Park promises family fun until the end of the day. While the daring look forward to breakneck rides with the roller coasters Desert Strom and Patriot, quieter minds get their money's worth with the bumper cars and the cosy water rides.
