Things to Do in Phoenix

Offering a sense of renewal in downtown Phoenix, The Westin Phoenix Downtown is just minutes from the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and within walking distance of the new Phoenix Convention Center, Chase Field, Talking Stick Resort Arena (formerly US Airways Center) and so many other great things to do in Phoenix.

During your stay, plan a visit to some of the many cultural attractions you'll find close by, such as the Phoenix Museum of Art, Arizona Science Center, Children's Museum, Herberger Theater, Phoenix Symphony Hall, Arizona State University Downtown Campus, and the Heard Museum.

With over 300 days of sunshine each year, Phoenix provides the perfect opportunity to get out and explore our unique desert oasis. The valley offers an array of beautiful hiking trails and golf courses to give you the true southwest experience. If you're looking to soak in even more of the feel of the local area, plan a visit to the renowned Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden and enjoy desert flora and fauna interspersed with Chihuly glass sculptures. Whatever your pleasure, Phoenix offers year-round clear skies where the stars are brighter and the sunsets are breathtaking.
