Flying To Phoenix With American Airlines

Mix adventure and relaxation in the desert when you book an American Airlines flight to Phoenix. Golf at the Arizona Biltmore, learn about Native American history at the Heard Museum and gawk at the world's most famous hole in the ground, the Grand Canyon, when you fly to Phoenix with American Airlines.

Hit the links at the Arizona Biltmore

It offers two championship-level golf courses: the older one, the Adobe, affords superb views of the Squaw Peak foothills, while the Links challenges you with narrow fairways. At the end of a round, retire for a drink at the Wright Bar and Squaw Peak Terrace, where you can enjoy more mountain views.

Spend an afternoon in Old Scottsdale

The Old Town offers its fair share of galleries showcasing cowboy art and Native American crafts, mostly located along Main Street and North Marshall Way. For Southwestern cuisine and margaritas served in a cheerful setting, try the Old Town Tortilla Factory.

Trek with the family to Grand Canyon

You cannot help but be awed, staring from viewpoints along the South Rim to the chasm below. Consider entering from the east for a more immediate look at the colorful cliffs and "temples." If time permits, a hike into the Canyon is an unforgettable experience.

Appreciate Native American history at the Heard Museum

This is the preeminent collection for Native American art in the Southwest—its highlight is the 500 Hopi katsina dolls on display. Marvel at the headdresses and pottery showing the culture of numerous tribes, and other cultural items among the 40,000 objects in its trove.

Pamper yourself at the Spa at Camelback Inn

For a real gift to yourself, rent a private cabana for the day and settle in for a ritual of adobe clay purification, hot stone massage, workouts, steam baths and sauna. Make sure you leave plenty of time for relaxing by the pool, the desert sun beating down and Camelback Mountain in view.

More Things to Do in Phoenix

Move off the beaten path with American Airlines to find more great things to do in Phoenix. Experience the Wild West at Tortilla Flat, hike Camelback Mountain for great views, and see where Frank Lloyd Wright spent his winters. American is with you every step of the way.

Discover Frank Lloyd Wright's inspiration at Taliesin West

The low-lying structure, with its rough-hewn rock foundation and timber frame, beautifully meshes with its natural desert surroundings. Tours take you to Wright's private office and earthy living room, filled with chairs designed by the man himself.

Catch a show at the Mesa Arts Center

It hosts an array of entertainment, from ballet to comedy to musical giants. Art lovers, take note: There's a museum of contemporary art onsite, with five galleries, if you need to pass time before the performance. The building itself impresses with its gardens, burbling water features, sail motifs and glassy main theater.

Drive the Apache Trail with the family

Look out over dramatic Canyon Lake, walk the ruins of the cliff dwellings at Tonto National Monument, and break for a meal at Tortilla Flat, a reconstructed Wild West town complete with a saloon and general store.

Scale Camelback Mountain for a look at the city below

It's a couple of hours of hiking if you want to get to the peak, but it's a challenging, steep adventure, scrambling past bizarre rock formations to reach the panoramic views of Scottsdale, Tempe and Phoenix awaiting you from the top.

Hear a new sound at the Musical Instrument Museum

Even the most knowledgeable music fanatics will be astonished by the breadth and uniqueness of the collection at this relatively new institution. See how guitars are made, check out John Lennon's "Imagine" piano, and learn about instruments as diverse as the djembe drums of Burkina Faso and nose flutes of Taiwan and China.
