Phoenix is the capital and most populous city of the U.S. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Old Town Scottsdale and Scottsdale Quarter. Visiting Desert Botanical Garden and Lake Pleasant Regional Park will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Phoenix: Quintero Golf Club (in Peoria), Goldfield Ghost Town (in Apache Junction) and Superstition Ranch Market (in Mesa). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Musical Instrument Museum, try to win big at Harrah's Ak-chin Casino, explore and take pictures at Chase Field, and get the adrenaline pumping with an extreme tour.
