    We visited here on 1/10/23 and spent about 3 hours exploring the gardens. We walked over 3 miles and because it was a free entry day it was very crowded.
    I'd recommend not visiting on the free day, it's just too crowded.
    We enjoyed all of the areas but the succulent area was very impressive.
    Parking is tight on busy days. I'd suggest driving past the regular parking and going straight to the overflow lot (on the left after the normal lots on your right).
    You do need to get a timed ticket to enter, even on the free entry days.
    If you like desert plants this is a good place to visit.

    It was a wonderful show at MIM last night with Paris Chansons. The musicians were amazing with delightful singing from 3 different singers. The audience was even singing along in French invited to join in by the band.

    Deceivingly expansive museum and collection on. Defiantly worth a couple hour visit. Every time you round a corner where you think you’ve looked at everything, you discover another gallery/wing.

    This is not an easy hike. Be prepared for a lot of bouldering! In the end, it's a really rewarding experience. I'd recommend getting there early. It's a popular place and parking is limited. Also, the trail gets busy, so the earlier you are up and down, the better the experience is without having to try and navigate rocks and people. The view is spectacular. Bring lots of water and some snacks!

    We came to town to see the Elton John show at the stadium. From our short 4 hours in house, it seems like a basic stadium. The common walking areas are small, like most stadiums and with lines for food, concessions, and bathrooms there’s no space to walk around.

    The show was fun. The roof was closed for the show so for a stadium there was a lot of echo.

    We stayed at a hotel within walking distance, so we didn’t use any of the facilities or parking at this event.

    Hole in the Rock has meandering trails to a spectacular mountain top experience. Good shoes are an asset & a camera to capture some views. (Especially sunset or sunrise) Very close to the Zoo & the Desert Botanical Gardens. Make a day of it!!

    We went up to the hole in the wall to watch the sun go down over Phoenix. It was spectacular to sit in the hole in the wall with more than a hundred people. It is an easy walk and well worth it.

    It's come long way since a bucket of sand.
    Equipment from the earliest man powered buckets and pumps to the latest stuff. Gear from leather to Nomex.
    This is something everybody should see.
    The 9-11 stuff. Not much to say really, I have only words...
    They have good parking too.

    We had a fantastic time here with my 2 and 3 1/2 year olds. We have been twice; once on Free First Friday and another time on a Thursday. The free day is obviously packed, but still a lot of fun. The weekday we paid still had a number of kids including some school field trips, but it was probably 1/3 as many people.

    Wear clothes you can get messy. Kids can go inside his belly armed with paint brushes and their own bucket of paint and go to town! They also have a open project where there is a theme and supplies, but you're able to create on your own.

    We went for hours both times and still didn't get to everything. Besides the art room, there is a barefoot room with dolls, buttons, slides, foam blocks, etc. There is a grocery store with all sorts of play food you can pretend to check out. A race car area, bicycle and car wash track, foam noodle maze, 3 story structure maze, outdoor play, crawling areas, not to mention special "baby zones" for the littlest ones.

    Plan to spend a few hours here and enjoy a long nap time subsequently.

    We recently visited the phoenix zoo with my Grandson. The zoo is very well maintained and animals appear to be in great shape.
    My only complaint is the steep cost of admission.

    This is a great museum, with free parking. It has some rather unusual art--not my taste, but also some classics like O'Keefe and Picasso and more. It is an interesting building to walk through. The guides and monitors are very friendly and very helpful. We spent about 3 hours and came away with mixed feelings about the art.

    Great mountain to climb. Plan on taking a few rest breaks along the way. This is a hard hike-no doubt about it- but certainly fulfilling. We got a workout, enjoyed the views, and would do it again. Bring water.

    This was recommended by a Park Ranger at Echo Canyon as we were looking for a place with picnic tables. It was perfect! Many clean bathrooms, lots of parking and plenty of picnic areas- including grills. We hiked the 302 and enjoyed the hike. The weather was low 60’s and perfect! Definitely will be back, it was beautiful.
