Phoenix is the capital and most populous city of the U.S. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Casa Grande Ruins National Monument and Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church. Visiting Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch and Painted Rock Petroglyph Site will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting Phoenix side-trips: Boyce Thompson Arboretum (in Superior), White Tank Mountain Regional Park (in Waddell) and Apache Junction (Superstition Mountain Museum & Lost Dutchman State Park). Next up on the itinerary: explore and take pictures at Apache Trail Scenic Drive, take in nature's colorful creations at Japanese Friendship Garden, steep yourself in history at The Jail Tree, and make a trip to Picacho Peak State Park.

On the 5th (Sun), trek along Fay Canyon Trail, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Amitabha Stupa & Peace Park, then explore the striking landscape at Soldier Pass, and finally get interesting insight from Tours.
