    What a wonderful experience. I actually found my visit to be emotionally moving. Wonderful to see, hear and move to music from around the world.

    We went on a crowded night with multiple parties and receptions. There was still plenty of room and great things to see. What a gorgeous venue with loads of information on native plants. A must visit when in Phoenix.

    Very steep well-maintained trail. Many sections have stair-like steps and/or handrails - I really needed them. Restrooms and water fountain at parking lot. Exact address is 4925 East McDonald Drive.

    The Heard Museum was a delightful learning experience, seeing many forms of Native American arts, past and present, and learning about the lives and practices of different native cultures. The Indian School museum tour was informative and well displayed.

    The terrain here is very dry & barren as is the rest of the desert area. The park does provide great views of the Phoenix valley.

    This was the final hike we did on the 3rd day. Having read that the parking lot fills up quickly (with multiple hikes from the lot), we decided to get here by 7:30 to ensure we were able to secure a spot. If you have done or are comparing against the Echo Canyon camelback hike, note that this is much more difficult. It's steep from the beginning so you get out of breath quickly. Additionally, you are hiking next to the edge of the mountain the whole way and it's rocky so you do need to be careful w/ your steps.
    There are a few areas where railings have been installed to help you up/across the rocks as it's bit tricky without.

    The top part is the most difficult and scary. you are basically scaling the back side of the mountain with minimal to no support to hold on to. This is also the worst part of the hike as you climb back down. If you are scared of height, you might struggle a bit here but feel free to climb down (this area of the hike) on your butt - that's what my wife did. it took her about 20 min to climb down the few min of the hike but that's okay b/c she still did it.

    If you are debating about doing this hike, it's def. worth it. It's an extremely difficult/tiresome hike but it's well worth it. I would not recommend this hike for any kids under 10 as they do need to be careful in certain areas. Between this and echo canyon, echo canyon is def. more family/kid friendly. This is more of a challenging hike. While the views from both hikes are great, we appreciated the views from Piestewa Peak more. From echo canyon you can see phoenix and the surrounding areas. From Piestewa, you see more of the valley and the mountain peaks around. However, echo canyon has more space for you to sit up top and enjoy the view.

    While touring Arizona State University, we decided to check out the Hole in the Rock. It is close proximity to ASU, so it was an easy stop for us. There is a trail on the backside of the rock that leads up to the top. It's a relatively short hike. The hole offers great views of the mountains and city. It is a good stop for an easy hike and some great pictures.

    Well-maintained trail (unpaved, no stairs) with signs identifying some plants and talking about desert ecology in general. Ample parking. Right next to zoo. You really feel like you're out in the desert. Covered picnic tables.

    We always try to go to a game when we visit. The staff is friendly and helpful and the experience was fun. The team shop had a lot to choose from. The parking was prepaid in the deck right next to the ballpark and was very convenient. The only ballpark with a swimming pool! The park has a retractable roof and can close on very hot days. It was open in the evening and a very comfortable breeze came in. The Diamondbacks played KC and won the game!

    We dined here our first night in Phoenix & it was the perfect introduction to the area! The evening view of the city through the large picture windows was stunning! Our meal was delicious from start to finish. We were not in town to take a tour of the property so wandered after dinner to check out the exterior & found it beautifully aglow in lights & fragrant plantings.

    I've made time for many of the museums in the PHX metro area, but not the Art Museum. As mentioned in other reviews, the facility is beautiful. I did expect to see larger exhibits, though. I'm glad I took advantage of the free cultural pass from my local library, but it will take a special show to bring me back.

    We had a blast but went unprepared. This is a 1.5 hour hike at a steep incline. Most reviews say slight grade lied. This trail was fun but will kick your butt if not an avid hiker.

    This zoo was good (though I wouldn't recommend it in the summer - it was hot enough in March). There were a lot of animals but a particular focus on birds and snakes, and local animals of all types. While I was there a big section was closed for construction which meant for more walking in the heat which was unfortunate. It was also hot so a fair number of animals were asleep. However I did get to see many animals up close. Worth it for an outdoor activity.

    This is an amazing children's museum! We have gone to children's museums in NYC, Philly, Baltimore, and Tennessee and this was by far the largest and had the best variety of activities for kids of all ages! Our daughters (ages 5 & 3) had a blast here and we would definitely return next time we are in Phoenix. The only recommendation I have is that there is no snack bar or little cafe, which is needed. The gift shop has some drinks and a couple of small snacks, but a full cafe with kid-friendly foods would be great. Ended up leaving early due to hanger for chicken nuggets.

    Fantastic view of Phoenix and the whole valley. This is a great viewpoint that you can drive right to the top, so perfect if it’s hot or you have mobility problems. I highly recommend it!
