Sweltering Arizona heat is generally not synonymous with 'summer getaway.' California beaches and tropical Hawaii resorts have got us beat there. But before you return to that ocean breeze daydream, consider the luxuries we have in our desert oasis: the snowbirds have migrated home and tourism is a little sluggish right now, so local resorts are beckoning you to come enjoy their lazy rivers, plush cabanas, and sip on poolside drinks with little paper umbrellas. Besides, it hasn't even reached 120° yet!...
