Phoenix is both the state capital of Arizona and the most populous of all capital cities in the United States. The Valley of the Sun, as it is also known, is a great place to find both indoor and outdoor adventures and events. Many museums, art centers, and festivals hold events outdoors since the weather in Phoenix is sunny and warm almost all year round. Famous for its desert landscapes and world-class museums such as the Musical Instrument Museum, you will also find a huge variety of things to do both day and night.
Not to be confused with Scottsdale Tasmania on the other side of the world, Scottsdale Arizona is part of the Greater Phoenix Area. It is popular with tourists, snowbirds and those looking for a lively and upscale scene. Named after US army chaplain Winfield Scott, Scottsdale has transformed from acres of orange trees and cotton to art galleries and upscale restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. The "West's Most Western Town" is known for many western themed events such as the Parada del Sol and the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show.
Tucson, otherwise known as The Old Pueblo, was inhabited as early as 2100 BC. Early native peoples gave way to missionaries, the military, and the Mexicans, but eventually settled to become the 2nd largest city in Arizona behind Phoenix. It is now also home to the University of Arizona, which is host to popular college sporting events as well as festivals. Speaking of festivals, Tucson has a continuous stream of diverse events such as the yearly Tucson Gem Show, the Dios de las Muertos All Souls Procession, and Tucson Meet Yourself to name just a few.
