It’s no secret that this dry desert has plenty of great Staycation offers this time of year. After all, many tourists are freaked out at just the sound of triple-digit heat. But for us locals, it’s a great opportunity to enjoy the deals and explore a bit of the city, too. And one sizzlin’ staycation that’s doing it right is Hotel Palomar Phoenix at Cityscape. Unless you live in Downtown Phoenix, chances are you haven’t been in awhile. Which is one of the reasons why this staycation made my summer list. Being downtown actually makes you feel like you left the Valley, with views of the high-rises, gaming and concert venues, shopping, arts and restaurants just steps away. If you aren’t sure where to start in your Phoenix exploration, these summer staycation packages are geared toward just that. See for yourself.
