TIPS TO GET TO PHOENIX

Phoenix is in the Valley of the Sun, with over 360 days of sunshine. When travelling from the California area (West), most visitors come either via I-10 from the Los Angeles area, or via I-8 from the San Diego area. Coming from the Texas/New Mexico area, one travels on I-10 going Northwest toward Phoenix. Finally, when coming from the North (Flagstaff, Sedona), one travels the I-17 South toward Phoenix. Another route for visitors coming from the Northwest is taking the US-60 via Show Low and Globe (although that route is very mountainous and curvy, so be cautious and keep an eye on your trailer breaks to avoid overheating when going downhill). While Phoenix is connected to all major areas via Interstate access, the traffic can be quite tedious, especially during rush hour. Whenever possible, try to travel outside of rush hour or on the weekends. Note: with many snowbirds in this area, there are also many drivers who are not very courteous or cognizant of RVs, so be careful at merge lanes etc.
