One Day in Phoenix Arizona Itinerary

One Day in Phoenix, Arizona

I’ll admit, when I first started looking at things to do in Phoenix, I wasn’t overly excited. Most of the top things to do according to U.S. News were art museums, science museums, golf courses, and spas. Don’t get me wrong, those things are great, but I feel like they’re the same things that you can do in any other city. However, once I found that the city was home to both Arcosanti and Taliesin West, two great architectural achievements, I began to realize that Phoenix had more to offer than I originally thought. Check out how I’d recommend spending one day in Phoenix, Arizona.

I’ve been “frontcountry” camping once or twice — with a fancy RV and a campground complete with public restrooms and a swimming pool — but visiting Havasu Falls was my first time doing “backcountry” camping. Suffice to say, my mom and I had a lot of preparation we needed to do. Check out my Havasu Falls packing list to see everything we decided to bring, what we wish we would have brought, and what we wish we would have left at home.
