Central Phoenix Activities
Midtown to Downtown P-town
Welcome to central Phoenix, where business meets the arts and sciences. The epicenter of the Phoenix metropolitan area, the central valley features a bustling downtown, lively midtown, and more than enough museums, restaurants, and performance venues.
Visit the Heritage and Science Park for a tour of the Arizona Science Center in downtown Phoenix, neighboring Rose & Crown and Pizzeria Bianco – Phoenix's famous pizza spot.
Sports fans, Chase Field and US Airways Center are also found in downtown Phoenix – home to MLB’s Arizona Diamondbacks, NBA’s Phoenix Suns, and the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury. The first payday of the month features First Fridays along Roosevelt Row in the Arts District – set just north of downtown.
Many a museum is found in the Valley’s central area, including the Phoenix Art Museum, the Arizona State Capitol Museum, and the Heard Museum. Traveling with children? A must-see is the Phoenix Zoo – especially enjoyable during the holiday season for Zoo Lights.
And if you’re looking for a campus tour, head to Grand Canyon University for a peek at what the Antelopes are up to. More golf courses, Arizona Cactus League ballparks, and cultural centers are found throughout central Phoenix – so discover the Valley with the help of Best Western hotels.
