Phoenix With Kids

Come explore Phoenix with us!

Phoenix With Kids lists over 400+ family-friendly activities and destinations around Arizona. 

Phoenix With Kids began as a short list of things to do in Phoenix.

The list kept growing as we found new things to do, and friends asked for recommendations. Then we figured why not put the list on a website for others to enjoy – and Phoenix With Kids was born in 2013!

The website has grown exponentially over the years —  along with its reach. And now, it is one of the leading online resources for Phoenix locals and those visiting Phoenix.

Chris and family

Meet the Tingom family

Phoenix With Kids is the brand of Jana and Chris Tingom. Together with their 3 children, ages 12, 9, and 5 they explore Arizona’s best parks, play places, hikes, resorts, events and other activities. 

We're a family of 5 living in Scottsdale

We’re the Tingom’s – Chris, Jana, Emily, Owen, and Claire. We’re a family that happens to love sharing things to do and places to go in Phoenix, and all over Arizona! We love what our city and state have to offer at any time of the year!

Exploring Phoenix as a family

Together, we all enjoy bike riding, hiking, watching America’s Funniest Home Videos, and swimming. We love day trips too! Chris and Jana have been married since September 2010, and homeschool the kids (and we were homeschooled ourselves!).
