Spend the Day Discovering the Valley of the Sun
A move can be time consuming and exhausting, but you don’t want to miss out and everything your new city has to offer. When you get a chance, you’ll see that Phoenix has a great deal of activities and entertainment that will suit every personality.Home of the Arizona Diamondbacks, Phoenix is a great town for sports fans. Chase Field, built in 1998, is air-conditioned, so you don’t have to worry about the unbearable heat of the southwest. It also includes a retractable roof and even a swimming pool, making it a truly unique stadium. The spring and summer months are a great time to head to the ballpark with family and friends. Enjoy a drink, great food, and America’s favorite past time.If baseball isn’t your thing, try the Phoenix Zoo. Monkey village, a petting zoo and stingray bay feature a variety of different species from around the world. Get off your feet for a while and hop on the safari train or the endangered species carousel. If you’ve got kids and plan on making regular visits to the land of the animals, consider becoming a member for free daytime admission, discounts on merchandise, and a list of other benefits.One of the best features of this city is the constant sunshine and warm weather. If you enjoy time outdoors, you’ll love South Mountain Park. Covering over 16,000 acres, this park is known to be the largest municipal park in America. There are miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. In order to create a few days a year that are strictly for enjoying nature in its pristine form, Silent Sundays are held every fourth Sunday of each month. On these dates, the park roadways past the Central Avenue gate may only be used for non-motorized purposes.
