Arizona weather is some of the finest in the country. In the winter, you will experience mild temperatures and sunny skies. Snow skiing is available within a few hours at such resorts as Arizona Snowbowl in Flagstaff and Sunrise Ski Resort in the White Mountains. Summer temperatures admittedly are hot, but relief from the summer heat is available at swimming pools, local lakes, and rivers. Tubing, water and jet skiing, and boating are popular summer activities. Hiking and camping in the cooler climates are available within a couple hours’ drive. Other popular vacation spots, such as Las Vegas and San Diego are about a 5 hour drive from Phoenix...or a short one-hour flight.
