Cave Creek, Arizona 

Why Go: The spirit of the Old West is alive and well in this small scenic town. Nestled in the foothills of the Sonoran Desert, Cave Creek is known for its cowboy heritage, quirky Western shops, lively local saloons, outdoor adventures and seemingly endless sunshine.

What To Do: 

  • Saddle up with Cave Creek Trail Rides for a guided journey through the Sonoran Desert. They’ll even loan you the cowboy look — complete with boots, hats and chaps.
  • Feel as though you stepped back in time with a visit to Frontier Town — a recreated 19th-century Western town. Take a stroll along Main Street to see a Boot Hill cemetery, browse shops featuring native art, jewelry and hot sauces and savor the flavors at Hansen’s BBQ. The town also hosts parades, dances and a professional rodeo.
  • Mosey over to Harold's Cave Creek Corral where live music is always on the menu and can’t-miss events delight day-trippers, vacationers and “Creekers” alike.

Where To Stay: Rancho Mañana, a Hilton Vacation Club lets you stay close to nature without traveling too far from Phoenix. This tranquil desert retreat invites you to settle in and stretch out in spacious 2-Bedroom Suites with Western décor, fully equipped kitchens and fireplaces.

Why Go: Las Vegas is a town designed for good-time getaways. It’s an over-the-top, city-sized playground that does everything on a grand scale — from shows and shopping to food and family fun. Even the nearby natural wonders are awe-worthy sights.

What To Do: 

Where To Stay: Polo Towers, a Hilton Vacation Club is steps away from the Strip and features a rooftop pool with stunning city views. Stay in a comfortable Studio or choose from spacious 1- and 2-Bedroom Suites and Villas with partial or full kitchens.

Desert Retreat, a Hilton Vacation Club is the place to retreat and relax not far from the Las Vegas Strip. Unwind in well-appointed 1- and 2-Bedroom Suites with full kitchens, plus resort-style amenities including a fitness center, game room and hot tub.
