Best time to visit Phoenix

The best months to travel to Phoenix is between November and April when the sky is clear and the weather ranges from the upper 60s to low 80s. However, the rates are quite high during this time so it is better to go either early April or late November. Some of the major events are also held during the peak season including the Fiesta Bowl in December, Arizona Beer Week in February and the McDowell Mountain Music Festival in March. 

Driving tips in Phoenix

Severe weather like monsoons and dust storms are quite common in Arizona so it is best that you are prepared and know what to do when you encounter this while driving around Phoenix with your rental car. If you get caught in heavy rain which makes it hard to see the road, make sure to turn on your headlights and drive slowly. If the storm gets worse, it is better to park your vehicle on the side of the road until the rain subsided. Don't ignore hazard signs and find other routes even if it is longer.
