Phoenix, Arizona is the perfect place to go when the weather is turning colder elsewhere in the country. This is America’s region of cowboys, mountain vistas and ranchers. The city holds many cultural sights as well as the opportunity to get into the outdoors and enjoy sunshine like you’ll get nowhere else.
As winter approaches the northern reaches of the U.S., it’s best to head south – and the desert is a special landscape where you will find peace and a little solitude. The perpetual sunshine is sometimes broken with torrential showers that last only a short time, and what better way to sit it out than in an RV motorhome with a good book. You’ll find Desert’s Edge RV Park is a great place to make your home base during your RV vacation in Phoenix.
