Your guide to Chandler

All About Chandler

Just 20 minutes southeast of Phoenix, the city of Chandler rises out of the Sonora Desert. Palm trees line the promenade in downtown Chandler, where you’ll find independent boutiques, restaurants, and trendy cocktail bars. The Chandler Center for the Arts, at the center of the city’s entertainment district, hosts a plethora of renowned performers throughout the year, and downtown is dotted with art galleries where you can peruse the work of local artists. The city is also home to the Chandler Fashion Center, the state’s second-largest mall, which features an interactive mural from a world-renowned artist.

Chandler’s diverse desert terrain provides an exceptional setting for a range of outdoor activities, including hiking, cycling, and birdwatching. As you make your way along the Chandler Solar System Walk at Veterans Oasis Park, monuments and displays teach you about the solar system. Drive 20 miles southwest of town, and you’ll find a network of hiking trails meandering through San Tan Mountain Regional Park, including the San Tan Loop, which leads through the Central Valley to the top of the Goldmine Mountains.


The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Chandler

The climate in Arizona is hot and arid year round, with the temperatures climbing extremely high in summer but remaining mild in the winter. If you decide to visit in summer, come prepared with sun protection and a hat, and be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day and avoid spending a great deal of time outdoors.

When things start to cool down in the fall, you’ll find plenty of events to keep you busy. The city kicks off the cooler season with its annual Arizona Harvest Festival and Open-Air Market, which includes fall-inspired activities such as a pumpkin toss and a pie-eating contest. Throughout the winter and spring, visit the Chandler Farmers Market, which is held on Saturdays in the downtown square.
