Whether you live in Phoenix and you want to discover something new in your own corner of the world, or you are visiting the city and want to make the most of your trip, you’ll find there are many day trips to choose from. These are five of the most popular day trips from Phoenix:
Grand Canyon National Park
This is perhaps the most common day trip from Phoenix, largely because of the popularity of the Grand Canyon National Park itself. Located about 3 hours and 30 minutes from Phoenix, this can be a family-friendly excursion or an adventurer’s dream come true. Once you arrive, you’ll discover endless opportunities to hike, bike, fish, and even go horseback riding.
The red rocks of Sedona are unlike anything else in the American West, and they are a must-see if you are staying in Phoenix. The city is located only about 2 hours from the state’s capital. Visitors will not only enjoy the natural formations that outline the community but also the historic downtown area that features shops, restaurants and more.
The Black Canyon
This canyon, which is located in Nevada and is home to the Hoover Dam, is a 4-hour drive from Phoenix. A Black Canyon River Tour allows you to experience the canyon from within, giving you spectacular views of the formations that were formed over the course of thousands of years. The tour begins at the Lake Mead Recreational Area and ends on the shores of Lake Mohave, providing you an all-encompassing experience.
Montezuma Castle
The Montezuma Castle National Monument dates back to the 12th century and is only 1 hour and 30 minutes from Phoenix. You will be captivated by this magnificent castle, which was built out of the cliff itself.
Saguaro National Park
Everyone needs to see a Saguaro cactus, and there’s no better place for viewing them than the Saguaro National Park. The park is 2 hours and 30 minutes from Phoenix.
