From the desert floor to the highest mountain peak, Arizona’s renowned sunshine ensures that nearly every day is a perfect one for sightseeing, playing golf, horseback riding, or simply relaxing and soaking up the sun.
Generally, peak season in the desert lasts from January through March; shoulder season in the desert lasts from April to May and September through December; and value season is June through August. Peak and value season in mountainous regions are the opposite of the desert areas.
