Is it true that the outdoor swimming pools are closed in the summer?

by L-A

Hi

I'm going to Phoenix-Mesa from July 6-11 for a conference at the Holiday Inn in Mesa. They only have an outdoor pool, and I was told by another Canadian who travelled to Phoenix in the past that many swimming pools are closed in the summer because they are simply too hot to swim in. Is this true?

NO, NO, NO! It is really hot in the summer...specially July. Going to the pool is the thing to do to cool of. Even the city public pools are open and until late in the evenings becuase it's beautiful to go around 6p or 7p.
My brother in law was staying at a resort for a week in Phoenix. This was last week, and on the 3rd day they close the pool but it was becuase something was wrong with it. You can always call the Holiday Inn in Mesa and make sure something similar is not happening but you should be able to enjoy the pool. =)

Thank you! That's a relief - will definitely take my bathing suit for evening dips. :) You're right, I should call the Holiday Inn and check just in case.

Outdoor pools are NOT in fact closed for the summer. What good would it be to have a pool???

They turn the aerators on at night to cool down the water.

Many great water parks to go and splash in.

Big Surf was the first man made ocean in the desert. Check it out your kids will love it.

Travel Tips for Phoenix

Packing List

by thechels

In the months of May through September it can get Very warm-to just downright- miserably hot, during the day. At night depending on your altitude can get chilly. Up in Northern Arizona the nights are cooler. In Phoenix during the 'Spring' and 'Fall' there can be as much as a 40-50 degree temperature change between the night and day. Go equipped with both warm and cold clothing! Wear Tennis Shoes, or something like them.

***ALWAYS CARRY WATER WITH YOU***YOU ARE IN A DESERT!!!!!...ESPECIALLY IN THE MONTHS OF MAY-SEPTEMBER!!! IN THE HOTTER SUMMER MONTHS, JUNE-AUGUST, YOU MAY WANT TO BE SURE TO HAVE AN EMERGENCY FUND OF WATER EQUIVALENT TO 1 GALLON PER PERSON. In the summer months Check tires, water, and oil, in your vehicle frequently.

***AND ALWAYS CARRY EMERGENCY WATER!!!***

Check out the Arizona Office of Tourism website for great tips, etc...

Flagstaff - driving from Phoenix

by jumpingnorman

Yes, Phoenix may be hot but during the winter months (December to February), you will see skiers going off to the ski resorts of Flagstaff.

Hikers also proceed to the jagged San Francisco Peaks, with Humphrey’s Peak being the highest elevation in Arizona at 12,643 feet. For those who would like to have a scenic chairlift ride, there is the Arizona Snowbowl (www.arizonasnowbowl.com 928-779-1951) which operates from summer and into October.

From Flagstaff/Wiliams, you can even take a famous train ride to go to the Grand Canyon (Grand Canyon railway)! The trains depart from Williams and the trip through forest and desert takes 2 hours and fifteen minutes each way.

Flagstaff also has commercial places like Barnes and Noble, Sizzler and several other restaurants. There's a lot of hotels you can choose from.

Just follow I-17N from Phx to Milton Rd/Route 66

The Compass Room

by redsquid about Anything and everything

Hello-
I just wanted to let you and all of your readers know that the service at this restaurant is awful.
We happened to go there for Valentine’s dinner and it was a total disaster.
The place was extremely busy and I think this stressed out the staff because the hostess was very rude to us from the very second we arrived.
She seated us in the absolute worst table they had. The waiters would not get us any water, so I had to ask. The food was over priced and cold when we finally did get it.
All in all it turned out to be a total waste of time. We will never go back to this place again. I will also recommend to all of the people I know that they stay clear as well.
Thank you. This is the worst restaurant in Phoenix. Go to Durant's instead, you will be much happier you did.

Lux Coffee Bar

by Chiky about Lux

The atmosphere is amazing! This is the cities secret treasure hidden just north of downtown Phoenix in a very inconspicuous place. The coffee selections are great and they use great coffee and quality mix-ins. Their White Chocolate Mocha is so perfect! they use Ghiridelli White Chocolate Syrup and whipped cream with a hint of espresso in it!

Waterparks

by Kage1979

In Phoenix and surrounding areas we have an array of waterparks for all ages. Kids and Teens will like all the death-defying Slides and parents and kids of all ages will like the lazy river and the wave maching. Little kids like it alot but middle aged kids like going from the middle of the wave pool to the beginnging of the wave pool so they can float. The name of the Place is called Big Surf.
