Glendale is a fast growing suburb of Phoenix and is located on the western side of the desert valley that holds this thriving metropolis. Home of majestic Saguaro Cactus and record-breaking dry heat, the desert here has been transformed into one of the largest cities west of the Mississippi. Primetime Vacations Specials recommends not letting tales of extreme heat scare you away from this vacation destination.

Aside from these three months, vacationers will take advantage of 9 other months of perfect weather where shorts, t-shirt, and sandals are the official dress year around. While others across the country shiver in the snow and freezing temperatures, Glendale remains on average in the mid-50s to the mid-60s making it the first pick on any winter itinerary.
