A local getaway is a great way to experience luxury in the desert at a fraction of the cost. Why spend a ton of cash on flights, rental cars and the other vacation necessities this summer when people travel from around the world to experience resorts in Arizona?
Summer is the best time to book a fun getaway at a resort in greater Phoenix or Tucson for a great rate.
Incredible pools, quiet gardens, posh spas, exclusive golf, quaint romantic settings, award-winning dining and family fun are just some of the fabulous things local resorts have to offer. And, in the summer, with a staycation, you can have a piece of that luxury or a weekend of poolside family fun for a great price!
