We all know Arizona is the place to be all winter long, but have you ever visited Arizona in the summer?

Being from Saskatchewan, I always thought summer in Arizona sounded crazy, who could handle that heat? But living here year-round now, summer has become my favorite time of year. The days are hot but you can?t beat the hot summer nights enjoying evenings in the pool with no bugs, no wind, and no chill in the air. And you can?t beat the amazing deals around the valley!

Arizona has mastered on-demand pricing. Entertainment in the winter months has become expensive. But golf courses that are $250 to play in March, become $50 to play in June. Resorts that charge +$1,000 night in March become $150 night all summer. A summer trip to Arizona can be very affordable for you and your family and there is still a lot to do including incredible water parks around the valley!

There is no better time than summer to visit Arizona from a cost perspective. Here are the top luxury resort deals in Arizona this summer?
