Phoenix is the capital and most populous city of the U.S. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Lost Dutchman State Park and Whiskey Row. Get a sense of the local culture at Children’s Museum of Phoenix and Prescott Frontier Days, World's Oldest Rodeo. Venture out of the city with trips to Prescott (Lynx Lake Recreation Area, Sharlot Hall Museum, &more) and Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center (in Scottsdale). Next up on the itinerary: pause for some serene contemplation at St. Mary's Basilica, take an in-depth tour of Phoenix Police Museum, take in the awesome beauty at Piestewa Peak, and examine the collection at Hall of Flame Museum of Firefighting.
