5 Family Things to Do in Phoenix, Arizona

Cactuses at the Desert Botanical Garden

Are you going on a family vacation to Phoenix, Arizona?  There are loads of family-friendly activities – beyond the kids’ activities that most resorts run.  Here are my top five favorite family things to do in Phoenix, Arizona.

  1. The Desert Botanical Garden (pictured on the right).  They are absolutely gorgeous, and there’s loads of kid-friendly exhibits, including the butterfly garden (seasonal).
  2. Spring training baseball games.  If you visit during the spring, you can check out major league teams up close and personal, and at a great price.  All of the Cactus League teams now play right in the Greater Phoenix area, so you can catch several games during your trip.
  3. The Phoenix Zoo.  The Phoenix Zoo, located right near the Desert Botanical Gardens, is one of my favorite zoos of all time.  It features loads of exhibits, family activities, and kids’ programs.
  4. McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park.  If you have a little guy who loves trains like I have, you’ll have to check out the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park.  There’s a playground, train, carousel, and lots of open space.
  5. Hot Air BallooningNothing promotes family bonding like a trip up high in the ski!  Head out on an early trip on a hot air balloon, and you’ll never forget it!

Disclosure: I received complimentary admission to a few (but not all) of these activities during the Phoenix Media Trip I attended.
