A few hours in Phoenix - July 11

Jump to last reply

I have an 8.5-hour layover in Phoenix.

I am thinking that I will take light rail and go to the Heard Museum.

My concern is that from Google Maps, I can see there's a 5-minute walk to transfer stations at 44th Street. Ordinarily this is perfectly fine, but I see Phoenix will be at 106F. Is this walk above ground and unshaded? I'll have luggage - is it all stairs, or are there elevators and escalators?

I'm actually not so worried when I read that the forecast is for 106, but I know that Phoenix has lately had 115-120F temperatures.

Alternatively, how much is a taxi ride?

Is there a convenient place to get a late lunch/early dinner near the Heard Museum (again with minimal exposure to heat and sun by walking)?
