Discover out-of-the-way places like Desert Caballeros Western Museum and Western Spirit: Scottsdale's Museum of the West. Venture out of the city with trips to Main Street Arts District (in Scottsdale), Three Mile Wash (in Roosevelt) and Prescott (Smoki Museum & Superstition Meadery). And it doesn't end there: learn about all things military at Commemorative Air Force Museum, see the interesting displays at Martin Auto Museum, explore the ancient world of Besh Ba Gowah, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Mary's Basilica.

Nicknamed the "Entertainment Capital of the World," Las Vegas sits in the middle of a desert in the southern section of Nevada.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Willow Beach and The LINQ Promenade. Do some cultural sightseeing at Don Laughlin's Classic Car Collection and Shelby American Inc. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Las Vegas: Wolf Creek Golf Club (in Mesquite) and Helicopter Tours (in Henderson). Spend the 9th (Wed) riding across the waves with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure. There's much more to do: shop like a local with The Strip, see the interesting displays at The Mob Museum, make a trip to Wayne Newton's Casa de Shenandoah, and explore the striking landscape of Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.
