Our 6 Favorite Arizona Spring Activities

Spring is an amazing season here in Arizona. The days start to get warmer, but it’s not so warm yet that you can’t enjoy being outside. The skies are blue and the world takes on an explosion of color thanks to the wildflowers and blooming cacti all around us. The staff at Phelps LaClair loves getting outside to experience the beauty of Arizona in the spring. Here is a list of our six favorite Arizona spring activities. We hope that you will enjoy them as much as we do!
