Phoenix is the capital and most populous city of the U.S. Explore hidden gems such as Boyce Thompson Arboretum and Apache Trail Scenic Drive. Venture out of the city with trips to Surprise Stadium (in Surprise), Apache Junction (Lost Dutchman State Park & Superstition Mountain Museum) and Wickenburg (Desert Caballeros Western Museum, Effus Ranch, & more). There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Casa Grande Ruins National Monument, identify plant and animal life at Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch, ponder the design of Fountain Park, and experience rural life at Queen Creek Olive Mill.

To find other places to visit, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Phoenix travel route site .
