Driving itineraries we recommend from Phoenix

Take in Arizona’s highlights and spectacular scenery with Phoenix car hire

Apache Trail

A must on Phoenix holidays – follow the Apache Trail along State Route 88 to experience some of the finest scenery in Arizona. This 80-mile circular route links Apache Junction with Globe via beautiful Theodore Roosevelt Lake, the dramatic Superstition Mountains and through stunning Tonto National Forest. Caution is needed to navigate the steep and mostly unpaved roads, but the scenic rewards are well worth it. Along the way take in majestic igneous mountains, striking cactus forests and vast, shimmering lakes.


Drive to the legendary city of Tombstone and feel like you’ve stepped into a Western movie. Tread in the former footsteps of the Earp brothers and Doc Holliday and get a taste of life in the Old West on historic Allen Street. Have your photograph taken at the O.K. Corral and watch a re-enactment of this notorious gunfight. The three-hour route to Tombstone on Interstate 10 South takes you via Tucson, where fantastic family attractions and outdoor activities await.

Grand Canyon

Take the ultimate road trip from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon. Marvel at the breathtaking scenery that surrounds you on your journey to this spectacular world wonder. If you’ve a head for heights, walk along the rim and peer into the awe-inspiring mile-deep canyon, carved by the Colorado River over 277 miles. The Grand Canyon National Park affords superb hiking and white water rafting opportunities for the adventurous. Stop at the picturesque, historic city of Flagstaff for refreshments en route.

Palm Springs

Use your Phoenix car hire to drive to the vibrant desert metropolis of Palm Springs. Ride the famous Palm Springs Aerial Tramway to the top of Mount Jacinto for incredible panoramic views. Explore the city’s palm-lined streets and browse its array of boutiques, art galleries and museums. Or tour the homes of Hollywood stars. You could also combine your visit with a hike in the stunning Joshua Tree National Park, en route to Palm Springs via the Interstate 10 West.

Las Vegas

Hire a car in Phoenix and take a trip to the neon-lit Nevada playground of Las Vegas. Immerse yourself in the fun-loving exuberance of the glittering strip, with its world-renowned casinos, hotels, shopping and entertainment. On your way to the city stop at charming Kingman, home of the famous Route 66. Or discover the abundant attractions and leisure choices offered by vibrant Henderson, within easy driving distance of the awe-inspiring Hoover Dam and beautiful Lake Mead.

Lake Havasu

On longer Phoenix holidays, drive for 3.5 hours through scenic desert terrain to Lake Havasu. Aptly-nicknamed ‘Arizona’s Playground’, this sundrenched destination is a haven of outdoor adventure. Explore the stunning landscape on an exhilarating off-road adventure or hike. Try canoeing or take a gentle boat trip along miles of idyllic waterways. Or stretch out in glorious sunshine on family-friendly sandy lake beaches. Be sure to take in the original London Bridge – shipped over from England and reconstructed in 1971.
