It's the fall/winter season in Phoenix, Arizona. This is when things cools down and people really start to get outdoors. The 120 degree heat is over for the next 5-6 months or so and it's time to start enjoying some of the great adventures available in the state. We are in the northern suburbs of Phoenix, and that puts several destinations well within a 2 - 3 hour drive of our home.
The biggest hole on the face of the earth is the Grand Canyon, and that's only a 4 hour drive from central Phoenix. What better way to spend your Christmas than towing your travel trailer up to the Grand Canyon and spending a few nights with family around a campfire. It's a trip that will take some planning, but there are several sites out there that will set you up for success on your Grand Canyon trip like this one.
It can get cold around the canyon this time of year, so be sure to pack a good variation of clothing. Daytime temps typically get up around the 60s to 70s, and nights can vary but expect some sweatshirt weather for sure. Sleep Around brand offers this All American RV'er hoodie, it will definitely do the job and you'll look great wearing it.
We plan to post some photos of past camping trips in and around central Arizona in the coming months, as we are getting outside with everyone else and enjoying a winter free of snow, with perfect temps and beautiful scenery. Take a shot at vacationing in Arizona this winter, if you don't already live here, and you will see why so many people winter here!
