Customer Travel Tip: Go to the botanical gardens. If there is a farmersmarket, go there for 1 hour or so.

Liked: Phioenix is a very relaxed town. It's easy to go there and to get away. People were friendly and for a couple off days there is enough to do. Go to the botanical gardens for example... (but not in the afternoon when it can get to hot)

Disliked: I can imagine that if you are staying for more than 2 or 3 days, it's getting a bit borring.

Customer Travel Tip: You want to avoid the summer at all costs, unless you are a party animal, in which case it's good, because you'll be enjoying the night.

Liked: The grand canyon is a must to see!

Disliked: Unfortunately I got there in the wrong season, summer! If you're not used to the heat, it could be brutal! It's always above 110 degrees, and it's impossible to engage in any outdoor activity. Winter and the mid-seasons are by far the best time to be there.
