What to Pack
Thanks to extreme climates and Western informality, you can go almost anywhere in Arizona in a pair of jeans.
Bring layers for trips north or east, particularly when temperatures dip after the sun sets.
For formal dining, call ahead for attire requirements. In most places, a shirt and dress slacks will be sufficient.
Depending on your desired level of activity, you’ll need to pack different gear: golf shoes, hiking boots, or flip-flops. Most golf courses offer club and golf-cart rentals, but plan on bringing your own shoes. If the slopes are your destination, you can rent all your ski or snowboard gear before hitting the lifts.
No matter your plans, be prepared with water, and hats and sunscreen for sun protection. The desert heat can be intense and quite deceptive.
