Arizona used to slow to a crawl in the hot summer months. Today, however, Arizona is busy all summer as visitors and locals alike discover the great deals awaiting at the world-class resorts. I continue my roundup of my favorite Arizona staycations today with Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass in Chandler.

Be sure to check out all of my choices for great Arizona staycations here.

Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass, Chandler

Another great Arizona summer staycation awaits at Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass, a destination resort showcasing the heritage, culture, art, and legends of the Pima and Maricopa Tribes. I'm anticipating a visit to the resort in one week and I can't wait. It's always a quiet respite for me, but there's also plenty of excitement for the kids.

The Summer Staycation experiences are offered now through September 6, 2016 with plenty of refreshing fun for the whole family. Unite your family with the new River Boat Adventures. Cool off while you pedal boat, water bike, kayak or stand up paddle board your way down our crystal clear winding river.  The excitement of water sports fun for the whole family awaits.

Make the most of our summer holiday waterpark weekends which will include large scale slip and slides, multiple inflatable water slides for kids of all ages, a dunk tank, family-friendly concession stands and much more.  Or work on your tan poolside while enjoying the full summer calendar of live poolside music and DJ entertainment including appearances by local legends Rock Lobster and Smashed.

Outdoor grilling and general merriment for the kid in all of us will include outdoor lawn games such as bocce, life-sized Jenga and corn bags. Adventurers can enjoy other unique experiences including Native American culturally themed courses such as ancient Chemeith tortilla making sessions, jewelry and dream catcher making courses, gourd painting, canvas & cocktails and much more.  For parents whose ultimate vacation includes just a little quiet time, find your way to luxurious pampering at our Four-Star Aji Spa or on the links at nearby Troon-managed Whirlwind golf club while your children enjoy our Adventure Club Camp.

I will be visiting the tranquil Aji Spa during my stay and dining at Ko'Sin. While I won't be going for the dunk tank or the water slides, I think a quiet day at the spa followed by a lovely dinner sounds delightful. And I'm thinking those water bikes might be a great way to work off dessert at Ko'Sin.
