Fun Things To Do In Phoenix

posted on behalf of the Hospitality Committee

On behalf of the NASPA Hospitality Committee we would like to welcome all NASPA members to Phoenix, Arizona!  We are so happy to have you visit our amazing, culturally diverse, fun in the sun, metropolitan city! The best thing about Phoenix is that there is truly something for everyone to enjoy!

If you are interested in learning more about the unique desert landscape, we suggest you visit the Desert Botanical Garden (be sure to mention confirmation #194330 and receive a discount off of general admission:  Adults – $15.00; Seniors – $13.00; Children – $5.50). You can take the Phoenix light rail from the Convention Center to the Heard Museum  to learn more about the local Native American art and culture (present your NASPA pass & receive a $2 discount off of general admission:  Adults – $13.00; Seniors – $11.50; Children (5 & Under) – FREE; American Indians – FREE). Staying in Phoenix through Wednesday afternoon? Be sure to visit the Phoenix Art Museum  for FREE from 3-9pm! If the family is joining you or for the inner kid in you, the Children’s Museum of Phoenix, the Arizona Science Center and the Phoenix Zoo are always a great way to spend the afternoon.

For sports enthusiasts, you can participate in the Night Out with the Phoenix Coyote hockey team (yes, we have hockey in Arizona!). Your NASPA discounted ticket price ranges from $20-$50 and can be purchased here with the password “conference.” For those of you who enjoy baseball, you can see your favorite team at a Spring Training game! For those interested in seeing a basketball game, we have a discount for two Phoenix Suns games, March 10th (vs. Memphis Grizzlies) and 12th (vs. Minnesota Timberwolves) with discounted ticket price ranges from $15-$50. You can purchase tickets here with password “NASPA.”

There are many golf courses to test your game and due to our year round sunny weather, a trip to the pool might be essential!

For those of you who want to explore the great outdoors, Arizona has a lot of options for hiking including Piestewa Peak, South Mountain, , Camelback and of course the Grand Canyon and Sedona, which are just a few hours north. Don’t forget your water and sunscreen!

Finally, for those foodies out there, Arizona is a perfect place to get your fill of street tacos, restaurants featured on Food Networks Diners Drive in’s & Dives, and other hidden gems.

Welcome to Phoenix, we hope you enjoy your trip and have as much fun as we do exploring our unique and cultured desert!

    This is great but there isnt anywhere to enter the promotional code for the Sun’s game on the Ticketmaster Website & the confirmation # for the Botanical Gardens says invalid code when entering it online. 😦
