Phoenix

— 4 nights
Phoenix is the capital and most populous city of the U.S. state of Arizona. Change things up with these side-trips from Phoenix: Taliesin West (in Scottsdale) and Salt River Rafting (in Whiteriver). And it doesn't end there: see Off-Road Tours, discover the riches below the earth's surface at Four Peaks Mining Company, stroll through KOLI Equestrian Center, and admire the natural beauty at Desert Botanical Garden.

For maps, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Phoenix road trip planning website.
