Move over, snowbirds—it’s time for Arizonans to get their own fun in the sun.


Due to the blue skies and relatively mild weather, the best time to visit Phoenix is from November to April. However, this time of year also brings in scores of proverbial “snowbirds” from around the country, all eager to escape the snow and soak up that sweet Arizonan sun.

The annual migration sometimes leads to higher rates at resorts. But have no fear, we scoured the internet to find deals that will give you the best bang for your buck—and a couple of them are only for locals.

Get ready for the staycation of your dreams.

Locals, this one’s just for you. If you book a staycation at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, you can get 15% off the best daily rate. You have to hurry, though, as this deal only runs through Jan. 6.

When you book three or more nights at the modern and trendy Andaz Scottsdale Resort & Bungalows before April 1, 2024, you can get a $100 resort credit in return.

You’ll have your pick of what to use it on—sipping craft cocktails on the patio of the renowned Weft & Warp Art Bar + Kitchen, dipping into the private outdoor hot tubs at Palo Verde Spa and Apothecary, or taking sound healing or mixology classes.

No matter what you get up to, it’s sure to be a suite stay in the Sonoran desert (see what we did there?). Use the code ESCAPE when you book your stay. Note that the credit cannot be applied to third-party activities (e.g., Andaz Adventures) or the resort fee. Check out the resort’s other offers here.
