Want a true Phoenix experience? Make sure to catch one of our spectacular sunsets, which paint the desert sky on a nightly basis. We know the best places to watch a sunset in Phoenix and are happy to let you in on our favorite spots:

 

South Mountain


Head up to Dobbins Lookout on South Mountain to take in sunset views of the downtown Phoenix skyline from the top of the largest municipal park in the U.S.

 

Papago Park


Hike up inside the Hole-in-the-Rock formation to watch the sun set over downtown Phoenix and the desert oasis below. The park gates close promptly at 7 p.m., so plan your hike accordingly.

 

Desert Botanical Garden 


Arrive early to explore the beautiful Desert Botanical Garden, then top off your visit by watching the sun set against a backdrop of desert flora and red-rock buttes.

 

Lustre Rooftop Bar at Kimpton's Hotel Palomar Phoenix


A great place to catch a sunset before a night out downtown, Lustre Bar has a hip and comfortable atmosphere, made even cooler by its poolside lounge seating.
 

 

Compass Arizona Grill

 

City scapes are my favorite. ❤️

When you make a reservation, ask for a table by the window to take full advantage of the 360-degree view at Arizona’s only revolving rooftop restaurant.

 

Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North


End your day with a margarita in hand on the large and comfortable patio at Four Seasons Resort. This elevated perch (which is 1,000 feet higher than downtown Phoenix) offers picture-perfect views of sunset-warmed Pinnacle Peak.
