PHOENIX, AZ — Phoenix truly has something for everyone, with a diverse range of activities ranging from art and music, to nature and gastronomy. It's difficult to cram all there is to do in Phoenix into a single trip, but here are some of the finest places to start.

Camelback Mountain

This Phoenix landmark is approximately twenty minutes from the city center and attracts hundreds of hikers each year. Camelback Mountain features two challenging trailheads that ascend 1,420 feet to a summit that resembles a camel's hump. Because of the amazing 360° panorama you'll get at the peak, Camelback Mountain is one of the finest things to do in Phoenix if you enjoy the outdoors.

Musical Instrument Museum

The Musical Instrument Museum houses more than 15,000 musical instruments and related items, making it the world's biggest museum of its kind. Nearly two hundred nations and territories are represented in the museum's collection, and each display includes a film of native instruments being played by local performers. There's also a performance venue, a cafe and a gift store on the premises.

Dine at Heritage Square

This place, which is located on the old townsite of Phoenix, will transport you to the area's Victorian past. While there are plenty of things to do here, the most important thing you should do is eat. Whatever restaurant you select, your taste buds will be in ecstasy. From Nobuo's fresh and fascinating Japanese food, Pizzeria Bianco's homemade and freshly baked pizza, to Anhelo's local sourced foods, the place truly brings people together with the cuisine.

Old Town Scottsdale

A fantastic time is guaranteed in this downtown sector. In Old Town Scottsdale, shopping, dining and entertainment are only the beginning. Unique art, jewellery and souvenirs with a Southwestern flavor may be found at boutique shops.

The food scene is fantastic, with many restaurants, tasting rooms, coffee and juice stores, and even places to fulfil your sweet appetite to pick from. The galleries on Main Street, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art and Western Spirit: Scottsdale's Museum of the West are all worth a visit for art enthusiasts. With so many clubs, pubs and lounges in the neighborhood, it's easy to have a good time and meet new people.

Phoenix Art Museum

The Phoenix Art Museum, one of Phoenix's most well-known monuments, houses an enormous collection of over 18,000 pieces from the Renaissance to the current day. American, Asian and European collections, as well as fashion and photography, are all available. Throughout the year, a variety of activities are hosted there, including live concerts, independent art films, festivals and educational programs.
