Superstition Mountains

While it may be tempting to spend a Phoenix family vacation within the confines of a five-star luxury resort, families venturing beyond the swimming pool, spa and golf course will quickly discover that there are lots of fun things to do with kids in the Valley of the Sun. Area parks such as South Mountain, McDowell Mountain and White Tank Mountain Regional Park offer more than a bit of 'green', hiking, biking and horseback riding await outdoor adventure seekers. If quintessential southwest is your goal, explore Hohokam Indian ruins and participate in a simulated excavation at the Deer Valley Rock Art Center. Tour a re-created Zuni Pueblo and participate in hands-on activities at the Heard Museum. Families in search of the 'Old West' will want to head to Goldfield Ghost Town and pan for gold and tour a once functioning gold mine. Jeep tours and amusement parks, not to mention the Phoenix Zoo and professional sporting matches, are but a few of the Phoenix attractions offering family fun.
