LOST IN NATURE DESERT BOTANICAL GARDEN In the Desert Botanical Garden, you can feel Mother Nature with the thousands of trees, flowers, and beautiful landscape. This botanical garden is a desert park with particular flowers, and cactuses that are brought from all around the world. Nevertheless, you would certainly enjoy a leisurely walk around the park and enjoy the magic of nature. During summer, the staff will give you a flashlight tour after sunset. You can also find hiking trails in this 50-acre area. You should not miss the variety of special events arranged by the authorities.


You can take your sweet time enjoying this famous Zoo. The cool breeze, the scenic view, a wide range of animals – what more do you want for a fantastic tour. Your kids will certainly enjoy the safari tour if you are planning to take your family on this trip. There is a petting zoo where you can have some face-to-face interaction with the animals.


Arizona Science Center has been one of the key attractions of the Heritage and Science Park in Downtown Phoenix. I love how modern and attractive this science center looks. This center specializes in displaying several scientific shows that help the visitors discover and learn many interesting things. The area of the entire center is quite vast (140,000 sqft) with contemporary touches on most of the interiors. Here, you can find a planetarium, a theater, and several exhibits. These exhibits mainly focus on stars, gravity, sound, and psychology.


With thousands of visitors every year, Camelback Mountain has been a standout amongst the most renowned destinations in Phoenix. Camelback Mountain is the highest crest in Phoenix standing around 2704 feet of height. This mountain range is all about hiking, and numerous enthusiasts come here every year especially with this particular motive. The trail to the summit of Camelback Mountain is extremely steep. There are some other lower peaks, but the scene of Phoenix from the top is too gorgeous to describe in words. You have to make ample preparation before attempting the Camelback summit.


If you are a fan of contemporary art, you will love the vast collection at the Phoenix Art Museum. Along with contemporary art, you would also find numerous masterpieces collected from different sides of the world. In total, this museum has more than 17000 pieces of art. Oh, I almost forgot about the ‘Thorne Miniature Collection.' You just can’t miss out; the rooms are full of miniature furniture collected and designed by Narcissa Niblack Thorne.
