Phoenix Vacations: Desert Meets Oasis
Phoenix is a sunny desert oasis, with the cultural amenities of a major city, and the beauty of the Sonoran Desert beyond. Visit the Desert Botanical Garden and view a collection of cacti and desert plants. Learn about Native American ways of life at the Heard Museum. Tee-off at a golf course. Lace up your hiking shoes and see the summit of Camelback Mountain. Afterward, treat yourself to a spa massage or treatment. Whether you’re looking for an all-inclusive resort package or want a personalized introduction to the desert, your Liberty Travel vacation consultant can bring you the best of Phoenix.
