Papago Park

Papago Park is easy to get to from the airport or your vacation rental. It’s close to the city, and that doesn’t mean the city will get in the way of some amazing sights. Be sure to hike the Hole-in-the-Rock Trail. The park is also near the Phoenix Zoo and the Desert Botanical Garden. For history buffs, you’ll learn about how the area was previously a “reservation for indigenous tribes, a fish hatchery during the Great Depression, a POW camp during World War II, and a VA hospital,” according to Visit Phoenix

South Mountain Park

This vast park covers more than 16,000 acres near Phoenix and is one of the largest municipal parks in the United States.

This is when the park’s main road is closed to traffic for several hours.
