Visit Phoenix Arizona
Phoenix, the capital of Arizona is an excellent place to visit, but if you don’t get that opportunity, then take a virtual tour here with us. Phoenix is a wonderful city has a lot to offer guests in the form of entertainment, dinning, and more. During this tour we will take you through some popular places, and things to do while in Phoenix, and give you the feel of actually hanging out there.
Phoenix offers great transportation throughout the city, with its light rail system, taxis, and popular uber drivers, but for this virtual tour lets have a little fun, and imagine we get the opportunity to tour the city inside Phoenix’s most popular limo service. If you’re ever in the city we highly suggest touring the city in a limo, its amazing, which is why we ask you get creative and use your imagination for this tour.
Let the tour begin…
Starting off you will notice the gorgeous mountains that surround the city. To the east you will see Tempe’s A Mountain, to the south, you’ll notice South Mountain’s huge mountain range, and to the north, the iconic Camelback Mountain. The city sits surrounded by the beautiful mountain ranges, and has the feel that the city just grew out of the desert mountain landscape.
Secondly you will notice the size of the city, though the skyscrapers are not that of other large cities, the span of the city is rather large. Also, for its size, pollution levels are very mild and you will notice the clear blue skies that are visible above the city throughout the year.
As we drive through the city you will notice that there are many great opportunities to catch a professional game, with Chase Field (home of the Arizona Diamondbacks) and U.S. Airways (home of the Phoenix Suns) in the heart of the city, easily accessible by the light rail, or a limousine in in this instance. Additionally there are many great facilities that host annual events, concerts, expos and more.
The Host With The Most
The Phoenix Area puts on a lot of great events throughout the year, bringing people out of their homes and into the city.
First Friday – First Friday is an event held on the first Friday of every month, and designed to get people out the house and trying new things, and meeting more people in the area. During the event artists line the street, showcasing their artwork and other goods. Like-wise businesses will set up a tables outside their business to let people sample things or set up some type of demonstration. The event is very eclectic and looks and feels a little different every times it comes around. With live music, free food, and a lot of happy people on the street, it always ends up being a good time. You don’t have to make a lot of plans around, just show up in Phoenix at sunset, find somewhere to park, and begin touring the streets.
Arizona State Fair – Another great opportunity to hangout with Arizona residents and enjoy the nice weather of Phoenix is to attend the annual Arizona State Fair. The fair is great place to enjoy thrills, enter contests, and experience some traditional Arizona food and entertainment. The fair also hosts great concerts through the month that it is in town, so if rides and carnival food are not your thing then check out what concerts they have scheduled. Check out the Arizona State Fair website to get all the details for this years upcoming fair.
Arizona Science Center – Another wonderful place I want to point out on this tour is the Arizona Science Center. Located in the heart of Phoenix, the Arizona Science Center is a wonderful venue that puts on some of the nations best science exhibits. From the human body exhibit to the Space exhibit and everything in between, the Science Center is a great pride for Phoenix, and an excellent place to spend the day at with the family or friends.
There is a lot to see and explore in Phoenix, but for the purpose of this tour lets move on.
Enjoy The Night Life
Phoenix has a variety of options when it comes to going out. Whether you like to enjoy a couple drinks low-key, or perhaps you want to dance the night away, Phoenix will have something for you. With popular venues like Comerica Theatre (formerly Dodge Theatre), and Celebrity Theatre which has a 360 degree revolving stage, there are great places to catch a show when your favorite performer is in town. Additionally the city has some fun venues that have something going on every night of the week, and if your enjoying a night on the town with friends you will most definitely want to check out.
Copper Blues – Attached to a comedy club, Copper Blues is a local’s favorite spot to grab drinks before a great comedy show. Forget the show, Copper Blues is a party of its own with live music, a rock star stage, and ample room to dance around. Let your inner rocker come out as the Copper Blues band plays an assortment of classic and modern rock. Centrally located in Phoenix, Copper Blues is a great place to pre-game before a game or show, or it can be the main attraction of the night.
Crescent Ballroom – Another great place to experience in Phoenix is the newly popular crescent ballroom. Offering guests a great venue for music and other stage performances, as well as offering great gourmet food, and a unique bar. This trendy spot has become known as a place to spot the who’s-who of Phoenix, but it still maintains a down to earth urban feel. This would be another great option for those looking to spend a night on the town while in Phoenix.
Film Bar – Another great option to explore while in Phoenix is the Film Bar. Exactly what it sounds like, the Film Bar is a bar that shows films. Considered a microcinema, the Film Bar focuses primarily on screening cult classics and nostalic movies that can not be found anywhere else. Expect to come across some die-hard movie fans, and an entourage of movie going hipsters, that know more about cult classics than most people would care to know. Nonetheless the Film Bar is a great alternative to a typical night on the town, and could poise well as a good date night spot.
Check Out Phoenix
Though Phoenix does not have the reputation of large and happening cities like Chicago, New York, or L.A., the city does have a lot to offer, and is building its reputation as a great city to visit and live in.

There’s tons that we did not cover, but we gave you a good place to start, and let our viewers at home feel the excitement that can be had while touring through Phoenix.
