Phoenix

Phoenix is the capital, and largest city, of the state of Arizona. Take a break from the city and head to Desert Botanical Garden and McDowell Sonoran Preserve. Popular historic sites such as Goldfield Ghost Town and Lake Pleasant Regional Park are in your itinerary. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Phoenix: Apache Junction (Dolly Steamboat & Lost Dutchman State Park), Tonto National Monument (in Roosevelt), Boyce Thompson Arboretum (in Superior) and Taliesin West (in Scottsdale). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Old Town Scottsdale, shop like a local with Mill Avenue District, step into the grandiose world of Tovrea Castle, and see the interesting displays at Musical Instrument Museum.
