8 Spring Family Activities To Do In Arizona
Looking for fun events, activities or places to go on the weekends with your family here in Arizona? Here are 8 family fun activities for you to enjoy. It's the perfect time of year to get out and explore the beautiful State that we live in!
1. Hike Wind Cave Trail
Wind Cave is the perfect trail in Mesa to see the wildflowers this time of year. To get there, follow the main road into Usery Mountain Regional Park (Usery Park Road) about one mile, to Wind Cave Drive. Turn north (left), and park at the trailhead. (Parking may be scarce during peak weekend hiking hours; if so, park in designated spaces back out on Usery Park Road, and hoof it back to the trailhead.)
From there, you can see where you’re headed: Look up and to the far right of Pass Mountain’s signature band of yellow rock. Wind Cave is the place where there’s a shadow.
2. Visit Downtown Gilbert & Chandler
Downtown Gilbert and Downtown Chandler are both historic old town areas filled with Restaurants, Shopping, Events, Ice Cream, Family Events, Coffee Shops, Splash Pads and More! If you live in the East Valley, these two places may already be on your list of weekend activities with the fam, but if you haven't been, it's time to check them out!

3. Go To A Diamondbacks Or Suns Game
It's the perfect time of year to take your family out to the ball game! Baseball and Basketball games in The Valley are always going to be a good time. Downtown Phoenix hosts the Home Games for The Diamondbacks and The Suns. Like Gilbert & Chandler, Phoenix has added many fun restaurants and things to do in their Downtown area. Spend the afternoon or the weekend in Phoenix before or after seeing one of the games!
