Visit Phoenix: Your Travel Guide

Things to Do in Phoenix
Camelback Mountain
As you might have guessed from its name, Camelback Mountain looks like the hump and head of a kneeling camel. It marks the Phoenix skyline with its ruddy red hue and is a popular recreation area for urbanites. Head here for beautiful walking trails through the desert landscape, or try some rock climbing up the sheer orange cliffs.
Desert Botanical Garden
Take a trip to the Desert Botanical Garden to experience the beauty and diversity of the Sonoran Desert. Thanks to the seemingly endless Arizonan sunshine, the garden is all outdoors. You can stroll along the different paths and discover more than 5,000 different arid plants and wildflowers, learning about conservation and desert living along the way.
Heard Museum
This heritage museum is not only inspiring for its beautiful collection of art but also for its eye-opening exhibits on Native American culture and history. You’ll explore galleries of paintings and pottery from both ancient and contemporary artists, especially from the Southwest. One of the country’s most important and impressive museums, it’s an unmissable experience.
Arizona Capitol
No longer serving as the State Capitol, this territorial capitol building is located on Phoenix's West Washington Street. Built in 1898, the Arizona Capitol is now restored to resemble its 1912 appearance, the year Arizona gained statehood. Rooms open to the public include the stately senate and house chambers, while numerous exhibits trace the history of Arizona.
1700 West Washington Street
Deer Valley Rock Art Center
Deer Valley Rock Art Center is an outdoor gallery nestled in the Hedgepeth Hills and is definitely worth the trip, to the northwest corner of the Valley of the Sun. Here you'll find an extensive collection of Native American petroglyphs spread along a series of boulders and dating back 5,000 years.
West Deer Valley Road
Papago Park
Located near the famed botanic gardens, Papago Park in Phoenix is a miniature desert landscape of red rock formations and desert flora, as well as boasting several fishing lagoons and covered picnic shelters.
East Van Buren Street

The traffic is a nightmare all times of the day and evening. There was a lot of road maintenance and even the 101 loop was closed for a time. This made for difficult travel. I was there for Spring Training.

Great location for access to everything we needed. After 1 day of driving the area I figured all shortcuts and where I needed to get to.

The Music Instrument Museum was fabulous! A must visit! The Desert Botanical Gardens was nice, but may be very hot in summer months (I was there in March, so not bad.)

We live in a greener part of the country. I am sorry to say, we did not really enjoy the desert.
