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.
Burton Barr Library
This distinctive building appears like something out of a science fiction novel and certainly turns the whole notion of libraries being boring, dusty dens on its head. Most striking is the ribbed copper that partially covers the exterior of Phoenix's Burton Barr Library, as well as the computer-controlled louvers and shade sails used to reduce the glaring desert heat.
1221 North Central Avenue
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
Chase Field
Home to the Arizona Diamondbacks, this is one of the few ballparks in the country with a retractable roof. Other attractions at Phoenix's Chase Field include a family picnic area and a swimming pool.
401 East Jefferson Street
Talking Stick Resort Arena
Home Stadium of the Phoenix Suns, Arizona Rattlers and Phoenix Mercury. Formerly known as the US Airways Center.
201 East Jefferson Street

Traveler Reviews & Photos

Very Good
I don’t like the summer heat. The winter is great! There seems to be a lot of outdoor recreation not too far from the city. Hole in the rock is cool. Want to go tubing, and to South Mountain, and camping. Traffic can be a problem but nowhere near L.A. Ahwatukee is a nice community.

I've lived in Scottsdale for 34 years. Crescent Ballroom & the Van Buren are excellent music venues less than a 2 minute walk from the hotel.
