Cheer on the Phoenix Suns at an NBA game or walk around the city’s historic precinct as you explore the state capital.

Downtown Phoenix has all the big attractions of a state capital with its own distinct identity. Home to some of Arizona’s most important cultural attractions and cherished sporting teams, the city’s hub is a lively area of celebration for residents and visitors. Spend a day traversing Downtown Phoenix on foot to dine at its award-winning restaurants, party in hip bars and discover a unique historic precinct. A visit to the formerly neglected Roosevelt Row highlights the burgeoning arts and music community that has made Phoenix one of the most fascinating cities in the United States.

Sports fans will revel in the excitement of a Phoenix Suns or Arizona Diamondbacks game. Stop at Chase Field to watch the Diamondbacks go head to head with the nation’s top baseball teams. Join in NBA excitement as cheerleaders spur on the Suns playing basketball at Talking Stick Resort Arena.

Spend a day learning about the local environment at the Arizona Science Center. Friday night activities geared toward adults are the perfect way to start your weekend on the town. Afterward, try local and Mexican cuisine at some of the state’s best restaurants before taking in some live music at a bar. The Phoenix Symphony Hall hosts regular operatic and symphonic events.

Stroll along the streets of Historic Heritage Square to see the sites. Stop by Rosson House to explore one of the most impressive buildings in the city. Inside you’ll find a restored interior that offers some insight into the way early Phoenix residents lived.

Downtown Phoenix is the city’s transportation hub and is well served by trains, buses and taxis. Traverse the district on foot to experience its vivid culture up-close. This part of the city is Arizona’s primary commercial center and is busy throughout the week. Avoid driving, as parking can be hard to find.
