Looking to experience a resort vacation that goes beyond swim-up bars and wall yoga? The Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort & Spa in New Mexico’s Santa Ana Pueblo offers a series of family-oriented programs celebrating Native American culture. Activities include horseback petroglyph tours, pottery classes and story-telling under the stars.

Air Vino
Allegiant Air discontinued its Mesa-Sonoma route earlier this year, but Valley wine fans need not despair: American Airlines quickly stepped in with daily nonstop flights to Sonoma’s STS airport from Sky Harbor. Doorstep-to-doorstep, you could be sipping a dry Sauvignon Blanc with amusing hints of honeysuckle not three hours after leaving home. Rates start at $244 one-way.

Desert to Desert
Much like the Valley, Palm Springs gets wicked-hot in the summer. And much like the Valley, Palm Springs goes into super-saver mode after Memorial Day. Example: the Midweek Retreat package at the midcentury-marvelous Riviera Resort, which includes $175 in resort credits (spa, restaurant, etc.) with a two-night stay ($135/night).


For more than 50 years, PHOENIX magazine's experienced writers, editors, and designers have captured all sides of the Valley with award-winning and insightful writing, and groundbreaking report and design.
