Explore Arizona’s Valley of the Sun on daily adventures spotlighting the history and culture of the Southwest’s most dynamic city and its environs — from iconic Camelback Mountain to the copper-domed State Capitol. Discover the region’s prehistoric and modern Native American cultures with a visit to the famed Heard Museum. View the city’s mix of architectural styles including Frank Lloyd Wright and Paolo Soleri. Experience the music of the city and the world at Phoenix’ newest sensation — the Musical Instrument Museum. Stay in Old Town Scottsdale where its true western roots are juxtaposed against its modern and upscale new Southwest style.

• Discover the rich diversity of the Sonoran Desert at the Desert Botanical Garden and sit under the stars around a campfire amid towering saguaro cacti following a dinner on a 1,300-acre ranch.
• Enjoy world-class galleries and a Western-themed ambiance while strolling Old Town Scottsdale, just a short walk from the hotel.
