Heading to Sunny Arizona

Last Updated on December 24, 2012 by Jody Halsted

Admittedly, Iowa has enjoyed a very mild winter this year.  We didn’t have any snow that lasted for more than a few days and when we did have the cold we’re used to, it lasted only a few weeks.  Somehow, winter had missed Iowa and, as recently as February 1, we here in the middle of the country were enjoy outdoor recreation like bicycling.

We were…  Until Saturday.  On Saturday we got the snow my girls- and most other Midwest children- had been missing.  Nearly 7″ of perfect snowman-making, down-hill sledding, massive fluffy white stuff, fell.

Which makes the timing of our next trip perfect.  Soon my eldest daughter and I depart for Sunny Arizona.  When we’re there we’ll visit a ghost town, the Phoenix Zoo, the Sea Life Aquarium, an indoor trampoline park and more fun family attractions.

If you’re thinking about a spring break trip to Arizona, or just want to know more about a certain aspect of the “Sunny Arizona” cities of Tempe, Mesa, Chandler and Apache Junction, be sure to spend some time on the Sunny Arizona website.  And if you see something you would like to know more about be sure to tell me- I’ll do my best to visit that site or attraction while we are there and report back!

    1. We will be there this week courtesy of the SunnyAZ CVB. It looks like our itinerary is pretty full, but I may have some free time Sunday afternoon before we fly out.
