If you'd like to leave Virginia's capital for an oasis in the American Southwest, board a flight from Richmond International Airport (RIC) to Phoenix. Located in the Sonoran Desert, Phoenix is home to ancient wonders such as the Montezuma Castle National Monument and urban venues such as the Talking Stick Resort Arena. Getting to Richmond International Airport by car is convenient since the airport is located near Interstate 295. A flight from Richmond to Arizona's capital takes just less than seven hours.
The Government District, where the Arizona Capitol is located, is the ideal starting point for history buffs visiting Phoenix. After looking at exhibits inside the Arizona Capitol Museum, follow Washington Street to reach some of the city's best performing arts venues, including the Orpheum Theatre and Comerica Theatre. This busy thoroughfare is lined with other top attractions, including the Arizona Science Center. To see exciting NBA and NHL action, walk down Jefferson Street and look for signs pointing to the Talking Stick Resort Arena. The Arizona Diamondbacks of Major League Baseball play at neighboring Chase Field.
Located by Interstate 10 and Interstate 17, Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) is within a 10-minute drive of downtown. Regardless of the season you fly from Richmond to Phoenix, bring sunglasses and T-shirts because temperatures in Arizona's capital rarely drop below 60 degrees. Featuring rides and concerts, the Arizona State Fair is one of the top annual events in Phoenix.
