Phoenix is the capital and most populous city of the U.S. Visit Goldfield Ghost Town and Casa Grande Ruins National Monument for their historical value. You'll explore and learn at Musical Instrument Museum and Heard Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Phoenix: Trilogy Golf Club at Vistancia (in Peoria), St. Anthony's Greek Orthodox Monastery (in Florence) and St. Anne's Roman Catholic Church (in Gilbert). There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Desert Botanical Garden, take a stroll through Old Town Scottsdale, take in the awesome beauty at Camelback Mountain, and push the limits with an extreme tour.
