Phoenix is the capital and most populous city of the U.S. Step out of the city life by going to Desert Botanical Garden and Balloon Rides. Goldfield (Ghost Town) and Casa Grande Ruins National Monument will appeal to history buffs. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Phoenix: Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch (in Picacho), Boyce Thompson Arboretum (in Superior) and Scottsdale (Taliesin West & McDowell Sonoran Preserve). There's much more to do: shop like a local with Old Town Scottsdale, Head underground at Tonto National Monument, admire the masterpieces at Heard Museum, and get to know the fascinating history of Lake Pleasant Regional Park.
