For adventures in Arizona, check out flights to Glendale. The city is so close to Phoenix—about nine miles from downtown—that you'll actually fly into Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX). You certainly don't need Phoenix to have a blast, although exploring the city is fun. Glendale is the home of the NFL's Arizona Cardinals and the NHL's Phoenix Coyotes, but it offers much more than sports: It's also a haven for outdoor lovers, history buffs, and shoppers. The area is family friendly and has entertainment for all ages. What are you waiting for?
Deciding between Phoenix and Glendale hotels? Consider staying near Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. The hotels there are close enough to Glendale while offering the opportunity for you to get to know Phoenix as well. The airport offers light rail and city bus services to many points in the Phoenix area, but a taxi or car rental is better since you're spending a lot of time in Glendale. You'll find cab stands and shared ride van services right outside Terminals 2, 3 and 4. If you want to rent a car, be advised that the airport recommends you make a reservation; cars for walk-up customers are limited. You'll need to take a shuttle from baggage claim to the car rental center, which has its own building.
