How bad is Scottsdale in June/July? I read it's usually over 100 degrees dry heat. Does that compare to 85 humid? Anyone visit in June/July and regret it?
Don't go in the summer to AZ unless you plan on staying indoors

Is it worse than Miami in the summer?

The downside with Tucson is that there are no direct flights from NYC.

Running a 2 week trip based in Phoenix for about 20 young adults, looking for more fun activities that aren't too pricey. Willing to travel up to 2-3 hours. Activities that are on our itinerary include horseback riding, DB baseball game, TopGolf,  Ice Skating, Salt River Kayaking, Lake Powell Boating, Lake Pleasant Boating, Grand Canyon, Bryce, Hoarse Shoe Bend. If anyone can weigh in on more ideas, I'd greatly appreciate it.
I try to sound as intelligent as possible.

Question about Sedona:   Does anyone have experience with Sedona off-road adventures? Thereís a Groupon for that that is much cheaper than pink jeep tours. Are there any cheaper options than pink jeep tours?
