Things to do in Phoenix

Things to do in Phoenix... Hope you got a lot of time on your hands, for there is much to do in this city over 4 million people.

From watching baseball, football, or baseball...from viewing the piano that John Lennon composed "Imagine"...you will have much to keep you occupied.

When you have visitors come to town, if you're like me, you wonder how you're going to keep him entertained... It's no problem if they have similar interests , such as golf fishing or hiking.

But what cultural activities are available when you have friends visited Phoenix.

It should not come as any surprise that most of these visits happen January through March...peak tourist season or snowbird season as the natives refer to it.

Not to worry...the Phoenix area has much to keep you and your guest occupied.

Professional sports ballparks and arenas


Chase field home of the Arizona Diamondbacks

Chase Field home of the Arizona Diamondbacks with its retractable roof in the open position.

The AZ Cardinals play on real grass at the domed State Farm Stadium...the entire field is on a motorized track that keeps the field outside for most of the time and rolls under the dome for gametime.

This makes the players happy due to less injuries on real grass vs an artificial surface that has a tendency to grab players cleats.

Our star Larry Fitzgerald, world's finest receiver...sorry Jerry Rice...loves the homefield surface.

Things to do in Phoenix...the greatest show on turf

Any writing on things to do in Phoenix would not be complete without mentioning the PGA tour stop...the Waste Management Open. Held on Superbowl Sunday the tournament sets attendance records that no other PGA tour nament can match.

On Saturday alone over 200,000 people were counted in 2018 with over 715,000 attending throughout the week.

The TPC Scottsdale, where the tournament has been held for several years is open to the public and currently has a green fee of $159 per round...making it "affordable" to many...especially compared to Pebble Beach, at $550 per round.
