Phoenix is the capital and most populous city of the U.S. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Phoenix: Scottsdale (Taliesin West, McDowell Sonoran Preserve, & more) and Apache Junction (Goldfield Ghost Town & Lost Dutchman State Park). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Musical Instrument Museum, take an in-depth tour of Heard Museum, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, and admire the natural beauty at Desert Botanical Garden.

Plan my trip to Phoenix with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

In October in Phoenix, expect temperatures between 91°F during the day and 67°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.

The size, shape, and color of Grand Canyon National Park combine to leave an impression on visitors as deep as the canyon itself.
Kick off your visit on the 28th (Sun): stroll through Bright Angel Trail. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 29th (Mon): tour the pleasant surroundings at Rim Trail and then take some stellar pictures from Mather Point.

Traveling by car from Phoenix to Grand Canyon National Park takes 4 hours. Plan for colder temperatures traveling from Phoenix in October, with highs in Grand Canyon National Park at 66°F and lows at 31°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 30th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive back home.
