Weather is hot or warm pretty much all year round. That’s why the best time to visit is the winter because you get the comfortable “warm” temperatures. It’s always usually around 60s. You can take a free barn tour at the famous Arabian Horse Show if you go in February. Go on a half-day mountain bike tour through the Sonoran Desert, home to some of the Southwest’s best mountain-biking trails, or kayak through the desert’s Salt River, a lush oasis surrounded by red cliffs and wondrous wildlife.
