When on vacation, your fun-loving crew wants to see it all. From experimenting at the Arizona Science Center to an epic hike on Camelback Mountain, Phoenix is packed with family adventures. And after a day of exploring all this desert oasis has to offer, you want a comfy place to reconnect. Here’s why you should plan your next vacation in Phoenix, Arizona.

Eat: Kids will get a major kick out of the camp-themed ambiance and fun food at Camp Social. With a vintage camper as the hostess stand, you’ll feel like you should have brought your flashlight and tent as soon as you arrive.

Play: Downtown Phoenix is home to the Arizona Science Center where kids of all ages can learn and discover. This 120,000-square-foot building has over 300 hands-on exhibits in five themed galleries. Head to the Immersion Theater to feel what it is like to to be in the middle of a hurricane, tornado, wildfire, volcanic eruption or monsoon.



Stay: After such a fun, full day of checking out all Phoenix has to offer, it’s time to get a little R&R. With amenities for the whole family, from kitchenettes to outdoor pools, Marriott hotels will make you feel right at home. Reserve your room directly to save up to 20% off (bonus: that leaves extra cash for souvenirs!).

Bet you’re already counting down the days.

JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn Resort & Spa:
“We planned a 6-night stay at the resort for a much-needed family getaway. The resort did not disappoint. From the moment we arrived, we felt like valued guests. Our oversized casita easily fit 2 adults and 2 teens (and lots of stuff). The Jackrabbit pool area was beautiful and peaceful with a great view. Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful and made our stay extra special. The resort grounds are well-maintained and beautiful. We loved this resort and can’t wait to return!”
