Phoenix Art Museum

Phoenix Art Museum might just put your artistic senses into overload. The museum houses American, Asian, European, Latin American, and Western American art, as well modern and contemporary art and fashion design. So there's a fair chance that something, if not everything, will catch your eye. With all there is to take in, you might work up an appetite that can be tended to at the museum's in-house restaurant, Palette. Admission is free on Wednesdays from 3 to 9 p.m. and First Fridays from 6 to 10 p.m. Otherwise, admission is less than $20 and free for children younger than 5. For more information, visit www.phxart.org.

Taliesen West is pricey, no doubt. But it's amazing. Do a little research beforehand and you'll find there are plenty of houses in the Phoenix area that were designed by Wright. Take a tour of them on your way back. You won't be sorry.

How about the Metro center? That should be a tourist attraction.

I liked resale shopping in the Melrose area when I was in Phoenix. One of the Frank Lloyd Wright designed churches was near that area too. Also an awesome place to eat was at Hulas Modern Tiki :)and Alice Cooperstown was cool!

I was just in Scottsdale yesterday and drove on Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard. Amazing architecture for sure.

The Phoenix area definitely has some really amazing hiking spots. I think the weather, plus our outdoor activities are some of our best draws (except during the summer time of course :)).

Never even heard of the Musical Instrument Museum. I've lived here 26 years. Also shit tons of people come here to see the Cubs, which is going on now.
