Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) October 31, 2009 -- Explore Arizona Tours sees more families with young children
considering Arizona tours and destinations. Explore Arizona suggests this is not a surprise as the state is child
friendly in several ways.
Tyson Bailey of Explore Arizona Tours suggested, "The state is made up of a lot of wide, open spaces. It's the
embodiment of the stereotypical 'west' and people see it as a place where their children will be able to run and
enjoy themselves without causing a problem." Arizona also has mild winters. Families with young children
appreciate this aspect because it decreases the hassle of traveling with children. Traveling in colder climates
requires a lot more luggage (especially when you have 2 or 3 small children). Arizona also has a propensity to
host family friendly functions all year long. There are tons of Arizona tours to choose from.
For instance, a few upcoming, family friendly events include: the 7th Annual Desert Shrimp Fest in Gila Bend
(Nov. 7 & 8th), Music Under the Stars at ASU Music Building (Nov. 6th), Zoo Lights (holiday lights display late
November through early January at the Phoenix Zoo), the Renaissance Festival (late winter/early spring
annually), and more.
Child friendly venues that are popular for Arizona visitors all year long include: Desert Botanical Gardens,
Phoenix Zoo, Pioneer Living History Village, Taliesin West, Adobe Mountain Railroad Park, Carefree Sundial
(one of the world's largest sundials-90 feet across), Fountain Park (home to the world's tallest fountain), Arizona
Science Center, Lowell Observatory, the Arboretum at Flagstaff, Mystery Castle…and more.
