Chandler Travel Guide, Arizona

Chandler, Arizona is one of the prominent suburbs in the Phoenix Metropolitan area of Arizona.  The city is known for its yearly Ostrich Festival, which is commemorated from the ostrich farms that were kept in the area during the 1910s in order to cater to the demand of plumes used in women's hats.  Agriculture was first based on alfalfa, corn, and cotton as the primary way to make money in the city.  Downtown you can find the Chandler Center for the Arts, which is a performing arts venue for the region, seating 1,500 people.  At Tumbleweed Park, visitors can also go to the Arizona Railway Museum.

When traveling to and from the city, the Chandler Municipal Airport is used as a general airport with two runways, however,  many of the residents still use the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, which is located only twenty miles away from the city's downtown area.  The city is also served by two heavy rail tracks of Union Pacific Railroad, but there aren’t any commuter rail services as of yet.  Chandler doesn't have any light rail lines either, but they anticipate having a service by 2020.

The cheapest way to travel throughout the city is by bus, but the choices are very limited in comparison to other cities that are about the same size.  It is definitely a better idea to rent a car if you fly into the city, so that you can travel wherever you want to when you get there.  This may not be the cheapest way to travel in Chandler, but it beats only getting to go where the bus goes.  It is also a great way to see the scenery of the city and enjoy yourself.

If you are looking for somewhere to eat, Chandler is one out of 18 other cities outside of California where you can find an In-N-Out Burger, having two of them and already with another one currently under construction and set to open soon.  Of course, this is not the only place that you can grab a bite to eat.  There are many other fast-food and sit-down service restaurants in the area that travelers can choose from.

This is a modern city that mixes tradition and youthfulness.  Chandler is a wonderful destination to visit on a vacation or to live in, having a vibrant history, top-of-the-line services, and diverse culture that weave together, creating a highly progressive and dynamic city.
