Weather is usually decent 99% of the time. The 90 minute drive to Oak Creek Canyon (Sedona) is worth it. It's really nice up there.

If you don't want to drive too much and do some desert hiking, the Boyce Thomson arboretum on the east side is very pretty. I take the kids up there every year on Thanksgiving week end. Not challenging, but pretty. Takes about 1 hour to walk the entire loop.

I also like Pinnacle Peak park in North Scottsdale.

What price range are you thinking per person?
