Summer Events

Summertime temps routinely reach triple digits in summer, but a 100-degree day in the desert actually feels much more pleasant than an 85-degree day in a locale with heavy humidity. The best thing about summer in Phoenix: It's value season. Prices at resorts, hotels and golf courses plunge as much as 30 percent.
