Phoenix gets seriously hot in the summertime, but as long as you make sure you stay hydrated, you’re sure to have a good time. Visit the Arizona Science Center and the Desert Botanical Garden to explore the region’s natural wonders, or one of the area’s many galleries and museums celebrating American, Southwestern, and Native art. Phoenix is full of Arizona’s best art institutions, with plenty of theaters, venues, and events, but you can also simply admire its natural beauty in one of its many prime stargazing spots.
