USA, Arizona: Phoenix – The Capital of Arizona II
Right at the beginning, we must mention an important building, the Capitol. It was built in 1900 and was the center of political life until the mid-1970s. Currently, the building serves as a museum with free admission that focuses on the history of the state of Arizona. The main exhibits include the flag of Arizona made of more than 114,000 lego cubes, with each cube representing one square mile of the state.
We continue with the Desert Botanical Garden, which is a beautiful complex combining nature with art. The works of art decorate the entire area of the gardens and give this place its distinctive charm. Tens of thousands of plants grow here, representing desert flora from all over the world. At the same time, you can observe hummingbirds and butterflies, for which special gardens are exhibited here. They are interwoven with long routes, so expect that you really are here.
If you like the fresh air, Phoenix offers many options that will suit both undemanding tourists and those who are not afraid to spend the whole day on the tour. So Camelback Mountain is a challenge. If you are more of a first group of undemanding tourists, then we will take you smoothly to Papago Park.
This is a beautiful natural area located in Phoenix itself. Here you can enjoy walks along local routes, but also a small hike. The locals like to go for a walk here, especially in the morning, before the morning and afternoon heat starts. The most popular routes are Elliot Ramada and Double Butte Loop. Both will take you to strangely shaped rock overhangs. Occasionally you may see fragments of the local fauna, especially rabbits or bighorn sheep.
If you love animals, you should not miss the local Phoenix Zoo, which has more than 1,400 animals. The zoo is interwoven with four main routes - African, Tropical, Arizona and Children's. There are regular events for children and you will find play areas where your little ones can enjoy themselves.
Close meetings with animals are a specific part of the tour. In their foreground is the Monkey Village, where when you enter, monkeys will sway and bounce around you. At Red Barn, children and adults can pet goats, sheep or horses. In addition, you can get close to giraffes or even stingrays here. And because there are camels, there are also rides on them. In addition, the zoo is equipped with a 4D cinema with effects such as water, wind and various scents.
