"Valley of the Sun"

Phoenix Tourism

The capital of Arizona, Phoenix boasts sunny weather all year round and was thus entitled as Valley of the Sun. The idiosyncratic beauty of Phoenix’s imposing metropolis is an addition to the already stunning desert vistas and mountain landscapes surrounding it. The seamlessly blended urban flair with the natural panorama creates a vibrant yet pleasing palate for the eye. Phoenix boasts some of the best hiking trails in the nation nestled within the surrounding Camelback Mountains and the Shaw Butte. The South Mountain Parks is the largest city park in United States and is a gateway to heaven for the thrill-seekers. The Desert Botanical Garden and the Phoenix Zoo are some interesting places to explore for all age groups.

Besides the enchanting adventures, the city has some captivating stories from the past. The Arizona State Capitol Museum features the turning points in its history and tells tales of its journey from a territory to a metropolis. The Hall of Flame Fire Museum that was built as a tribute to the fire fighter martyrs exhibits unique fire extinguishers from around the world to commemorate their struggle.

Serving as home to Frank Lloyd Wright School of architecture and Foundation, Taliesin West is an exceptional work of architecture. Phoenix art museum and the Heard museum exhibit a curious collection of modern and contemporary art that are quite thought-provoking. Phoenix’s Musical Instrument Museum is a culmination of five distinct galleries that showcases around 6,800 indigenous instruments from all over the world. But these are only just sneak peeks to the rich culture and educational hub of Phoenix.  

Phoenix also has a range of interesting activities specially designed for the children in the Phoenix Children’s Museum and Arizona Science Centre. The metropolis is a paradox of quirky and captivating sites and the Old town of Scottsdale is a unique illustration of just that.
