day in phoenix

I will be in the Phoenix airport for a seven hour lay over. Any recommendations for something to do? I have never been to Phoenix. Also, is it easy to use public transportation or taxi around Phoenix?

What kind of things do you like to do? There are many fun things to do in Phoenix but you need to give us hints as to what interests you. It's easy enough to get a taxi, but there is no subway system. I wouldn't waste time waiting on a bus with only a 7 hour layover. Heard Museum is beautiful.

If the weather is nice you might enjoy the Desert Botanical Gardens or strolling through the downtown Scottsdale area and having a bite to eat. It will also depend on what time your layover is.

Mill avenue has a lot of places to walk through and shop and is near the airport so to speak. But if its 7 hours remember you have to be back at the airport to go through security again so give yourself only 5 hours to do things nearby. It just depends on what day and time of day you are going to be here.
