See the Sights
There's desert is truly a magical place. I highly recommend spending some time outdoors and taking in the gorgeous scenery. If you're more of a thrill seeker, book a guided ATV tour through the Sonoran Desert. If you prefer a more leisurely pace, check out the sunrise hot air balloon tours offered by Hot Air Expeditions. You'll enjoy stunning views as well as a champagne breakfast!
Explore the arts and culture that make up this expansive city. Phoenix offers many different museums and hands-on experiences for all ages. The Arizona Science Center is great for families, with exhibits designed to educate and entertain. If you're an art fanatic, be sure to check out the internationally acclaimed Heard Museum.
