Travelling from Las Vegas to Phoenix. Spending 3 nights in Phoenix before flying back home to Canada. Have checked out several resorts; Legacy, Arizona golf resort and Westgate painted mountain. Am leaning towards The Legacy, however am a bit leary as I read some of the reviews about the rough neighbourhood. (As we are total country bumpkins!!) Is it that bad? So, any advice would be welcome , also any info about how to spend our time. We are thinking of the Apache Trail tour, maybe horseback riding, and some golf. Are there any must sees?
I wouldn't walk around outside of the resort at night (not that there's anything to walk to), but you also aren't in any real danger of being robbed or shot while in your car.
If you're really worried about it, when you return from somewhere, take the less direct route of I-10 to Baseline, then west to 32nd as opposed to I-10 to 32nd. It's a better area on Baseline.
But, really, it's not THAT bad.
