If you are traveling to Phoenix, be sure to visit vibrant Glendale, AZ, just northwest of the city. The West Valley area that includes Glendale is famous for lush desert hiking trails and fighter jets from Luke Air Force Base zipping through the blue skies.
Plan to stay a while and check out our Glendale, AZ hotels. You will never be at a loss for something to do with these attractions nearby:
No trip to Glendale is complete without a tour of the University of Phoenix Stadium, home of the Cardinals football team. The high-tech facility has a retractable roof and field to accommodate events ranging from athletics to concerts for up to 72,000 screaming fans.
When you are ready to cool off, bring the family to Wet 'n' Wild Phoenix in Glendale. This water park features a play area for the little ones, along with twisting water slides complete with heart-stopping drops for adventurous adults.
Slow down the pace and take some time at Elsie McCarthy Sensory Garden. Water features, special lighting and groomed plants tantalize the senses as you explore the magical garden.
Then take a stroll in the Westgate Entertainment District. Stop for lunch at one of the many eateries and do a little window shopping at the specialty boutiques. If your feet need a rest, kick back at the 20-screen movie theater.
Just minutes away from the entertainment district is Glendale's Historic District. This area is an antique collector's dream. Enjoy the step back in time with classic car shows and community socials in the town square. If you are visiting between Thanksgiving and mid-January, do not miss Glendale Glitters. The 16-block area is shrouded in 1.5 million twinkling lights. Horse-drawn carriage rides await and children can participate in seasonal crafts.
If you have extra time, take a short drive to the edge of Glendale to the Deer Valley Rock Art Center for a history lesson. The 47-acre preserve boasts Native American petroglyphs that are viewable in their original, undisturbed locations.
