#1: Phoenix, Arizona

For the sports fan, there aren’t many better places to get your fix than Phoenix. The area is not only home to all four major professional sports, but also houses more niche events and large annual contests such as professional lacrosse, MLB spring training, two NASCAR events as well as both boat and drag races.

With its warm, dry weather, Phoenix is the perfect setting for water parks such as Big Surf, Waterworld Safari and the Oasis Water Park. The Desert Botanical Garden is also an must see, with 50 acres that house the world’s finest collection of desert plants mixed with incredible blown glass sculpture (pictured). It’s not just cacti, we swear!

Many also take advantage of being able to drive the Apache Trail, stopping along the scenic route to visit a number of historic sites such as the Lost Dutchman State Park, Goldfield Ghost Town, and Theodore Roosevelt Dam.

Don’t Miss: If you’re really up for some adventure and a long drive, we highly recommend taking the trip to Winslow, AZ, a town made famous by the Eagles. You can stand on the corner and be “such a fine sight to see,” as the song goes. If you’re a girl in a flat-bed Ford, well, that’s even better.
