If you're reading this, it must be one of the few days a year that wet stuff is falling from the sky. But don't let a little precipitation keep you cooped up on the couch all day. Check out these weather-proof indoor escapes — here's the best indoor activities in Phoenix. 


Go to a Museum

Drizzle, downpour, or dust storm, you can count on a Phoenix-area museum to shield you from the elements.

Hit the Mall

As if you needed a reason to treat yourself, seek shelter at Scottsdale Fashion Square when rain is in the forecast. Catch a movie at Harkins Camelview at Fashion Square, watch the storm roll in from the safety of the covered patios at Kona Grill or Yard House, or cure your rainy day blues with retail therapy at the hundreds of stores inside Arizona's largest shopping center.

Catch a Movie

There's no such thing as a boring rainy day at Alamo Drafthouse, where great movies, cold beer and good food come together in perfect harmony. Duck for cover inside either their Tempe or Chandler locales, where the only condensation you'll find is on your ice cold pint glass.

Grab a Drink

When it's raining outside, it's pouring inside at local Phoenix breweries and coffee shops. Stop refreshing your weather app and refresh with a hot latte or a cold pint instead.

It's raining, it's pouring and your kids say it's boring. Get out of the house and keep your crew entertained at  Legoland Discovery CenterOdysea Aquarium and Butterfly Wonderland. Work up an appetite racing Lego vehicles or hanging with stingrays? Head to one of Phoenix's kid-friendly restaurants.
