The Silvercar Phoenix location is off-site from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. One of the largest cities in the southwestern U.S., the capital of Arizona is known for its year-round sun and warm temperatures. With no paperwork and no lines, you’ll quickly be on the road and headed to your final destination.
The largest metropolis in the Valley of the Sun, Phoenix boasts high-end spa resorts, golf courses designed by Masters champions, art galleries, and a vibrant nightlife. Bentley Projects is a funky downtown warehouse district featuring many of the city’s most popular art galleries.
The city’s chefs are redefining southwestern cuisine and the surrounding landscape beckons nature enthusiasts. Grab a bite of authentic Mexican cuisine at the Phoenix Ranch Market. Watch fresh tortillas get made while sipping a hibiscus agua fresca.
For a view of the entire city, plan a hike to the top of Camelback Mountain’s red rocks. The challenging Echo Canyon trail winds 1.2 miles, but you’ll gain more than 1,200 feet in elevation as you scramble up the steepest sections with the (necessary) help of handrails.
Use the free GPS to easily navigate to Scottsdale, about 30 minutes east of Phoenix. The satellite city is rife with state-of-the-art spas where you can book a treatment or a weekend to soothe away the stress. Or visit Taliesin West, architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s former home and studio, located just north of Scottsdale on the edge of the Sonoran Desert.
If time permits, you can also make a day trip to Sedona, about two hours north. The desert town is surrounded by dramatic red rock formations and renown for its mild climate and vibrant arts community. Uptown Sedona features spas and art galleries as well as New Age shops, while the surrounding area is prime for bird-watching, hiking, and picnics.
Other premium features in your Audi rental, such as free Wi-Fi and SiriusXM satellite radio, will make your drive time in Phoenix as indulgent as the spa treatments.
