If you have a romantic weekend away on the books, but you haven’t quite decided on the destination, Phoenix is the place to be. Located in the state of Arizona, Phoenix is a diverse city with plenty of things to do for different types of couples. Whether you and your partner enjoy getting pampered, love being in the great outdoors, are wild at heart, or enjoy the cultural aspects of a destination, Phoenix has got you covered. Here are 3 of the best things you can do in the Valley of the Sun.
Relax at a Luxurious Spa Resort
There is no better place than the capital of Arizona for rest and relaxation. The desert is a majestic, vast place, which makes it an excellent location for spa resorts. In fact, many people consider Scottsdale to be the spa capital of the United States, and getting pampered at a spa resort is one of the most relaxing things to do in Phoenix. Many spa resorts use techniques inspired by the desert. While getting pampered, opt for a special spa treatment that incorporates the minerals and botanicals sourced from the local area. A prickly pear clay is a great option if your skin needs a detox. Some resorts offer massages using essential oils blended with the essence of the ‘Queen of the Night cactus flower to help relieve tension.
Go on a Hike and Marvel at the Natural Desert Beauty
Phoenix is well known for its red-hot sun and desert landscape. If you and your partner can handle the heat, get out into the great outdoors and marvel at the natural beauty. This stunning destination is a hiker’s dream as it boasts numerous nature trails for couples of all abilities. For amazing vistas of the Sonoran Desert, take on the Echo Canyon Trail at Camelback Mountain. Along the way to the summit, keep your eyes peeled for wildlife native to the area, such as Chuckwalla lizards, cottontail rabbits, and Harris antelope squirrels. South Mountain Park is another excellent choice. You can choose from many walking trails at this municipal park, with the most popular being the Hidden Valley Trail. Ensure you take proper precautions in the form of protective clothing and sunscreen to protect yourself against the desert heat.
Visit the Jaw-Dropping Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon is a must-visit for many travelers around the world. More than 6 million tourists visit it each year. This national treasure is estimated to be between 5 to 70 million years old, and it is over a mile deep and 277 miles long. A day trip to the Grand Canyon is enough to make anyone’s jaw drop, but if you want an extra special experience, why not splash out on a helicopter tour over the Canyon? A guided tour from the sky will give you a chance to get a bird’s eye view of the Red Rocks of Sedona, San Francisco Peaks, Montezuma’s Well, and the Tonto National Forest. This is the perfect Phoenix excursion if you are celebrating a special occasion with your other half.
