Whether biking or golfing, camping or shopping, there’s no wrong way to enjoy Phoenix.

Clear skies abound in Phoenix, the undisputed capital of the Southwest. The dry desert atmosphere lends itself to year-round activities, all available nonstop from MidAmerica St. Louis Airport on Allegiant Airlines.

The Phoenix metropolis is an intriguing mixture of fast and slow, of hot and cool. Outdoor activities abound, from rock climbing to mountain biking, all of which can be balanced out with resort living and unforgettable southwestern cuisine. The desert is an incredible opportunity waiting to be explored, day and night.  And no trip to Arizona would be complete without visiting The Grand Canyon—one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world for good reason. The awe-inspiring canyon is loved by hikers, white-water rafters, campers, and photo enthusiasts alike.

Outdoor enthusiasts aren’t the only ones who enjoy Phoenix: Professional baseball teams from across the country warm up here, including the Chicago Cubs, the Kansas City Royals, and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Retail therapy is also readily available: from charming antique shops to chic boutiques to some of the nation’s most fashionable shopping centers, Phoenix can claim some of the best shop-till-you-drop opportunities in the Southwest.

From top-notch cultural attractions to unforgettable outdoor wonders, Phoenix has something for every kind of traveler.
