The Desert Botanical Garden - Phoenix AZ
We went to AZ mainly to hang out with friends, but we did find a few hours to sneak off and do some touristy things.
The Desert Botanical Garden is part of the same organization as our Botanical Garden here in Maine, and since we're members here, we were able to get in for free. We only had to pay the $3.50 extra to get into the Monarch Butterfly house, which was a pretty cool extra.
I really enjoyed this garden. Who knew there were so many types of cactus, and they all look so neat together? And, I must say, the smell of mesquite as you're wondering around is heavenly. We didn't manage to see everything in our trip, so I'll definitely be back some day.
