Phoenix
Phoenix is the capital, and largest city, of the state of Arizona. Goldfield (Ghost Town) and Tovrea Castle at Carraro Heights Visitor Center will appeal to history buffs. Do some cultural sightseeing at Old Town Scottsdale and Lake Pleasant Regional Park. Explore Phoenix's surroundings by going to Scottsdale (Taliesin West & McDowell Sonoran Preserve), Sibley's West: The Chandler and Arizona Gift Shop (in Chandler) and Boyce Thompson Arboretum (in Superior). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Musical Instrument Museum, explore the activities along Dolly Steamboat, get the adrenaline pumping with an extreme tour, and enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour.
