Looking for something to do in Arizona in the month of May? Whether you’re trying to beat the heat or soak in the sun, here is a list of fun things to do this year:
Whether you live in Arizona or it’s your first time, the Grand Canyon is a must. There are many ways to experience the canyon: walking around and taking pictures, hiking into the canyon, and taking a trip down the river. However you choose to experience it, it is a place you will not forget.
Desert Botanical Gardens
Contrary to popular belief, Arizona is the host to many magnificent plants. Head on over to the Botanical Gardens to see and learn about these unusual plants. In May, Desert Botanical Gardens is hosting a Bruce Munro: Sonoran Light event- a time to enjoy the garden light up as the sun goes down. Have young children? Throughout the summer, DBG is hosting camps for children to explore the critters and plants in the garden.
Musical Instrument Museum (MIM)
The MIM is a signature place in Arizona. It’s the perfect place to take your date, family, friends, and children. Throughout the summer, you can sign up for an Orientation Tour or take your children to enjoy MIMkids Mini Music Makers. Hurry on over to the MIM to partake in Experience Polynesia to enjoy music, dancing, and eating of Pacific Islander culture.
Hello, sunshine! There’s nothing as refreshing as splashing around in water when it is over 100 degrees outside. Head on over to one of Arizona’s many waterparks and take your first dip of summer. If you want to have fun, you have to get wet, so go online and purchase your season passes.
Head to Flagstaff to enjoy some cooler weather. Flagstaff has great hikes so that you can still experience the outdoors without worrying about heat exhaustion. There are also many cozy coffee shops that host a lot of concerts and museums for artwork. Every Friday and Saturday, the Lumberyard hosts two-step dance lessons. Dance your worries away and head up north for some fun.
