To see the Sonoran Desert's landscapes, fly from Charlotte, North Carolina, to Phoenix, Arizona. Leaving Charlotte is easiest when you park in the garages attached to Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) or at the Park n Go on Scott Futrell Drive. A four-hour flight brings you to the Valley of the Sun,.
Just east of Phoenix is the Salt River, which is home to wildlife preserves and natural settings in the protected Tonto National Forest. In summer, you can rent an inflatable inner tube and float down the Salt River. Further east of the main metro area are the Superstition Mountains and the iconic Four Peaks of the Mazatzal Mountains, which have hiking and motor-sport trails for all levels of ability. In the city, visitors can enjoy games of the MLB, NBA, WNBA, NHL and NFL. Phoenix suburb Glendale has hosted two Super Bowls at the University of Phoenix Stadium on the west end of town, and the Cardinals play there regularly.
You ll land at Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) in the center of metro Phoenix. The airport sits along the Interstate 10, the Loop 202 and State Route 51 and is also served by Valley Metro's bus and Light Rail services. Prepare for a hot desert climate when you fly from Charlotte to Phoenix. While winter temperatures range from 50 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit, summer nights are rarely under 80 degrees, and July daytime temperatures regularly exceed 110 degrees.
