What to Do in the Valley of the Sun…

Papago Park: Papago Park is a 1500-acre desert park in Phoenix and Tempe, Arizona. The park is known for its distinctive geological formations and its variety of desert plants. The park contains a Botanical Garden, picnic areas, several lakes, hiking trails, bike paths, baseball/ softball fields, a fire museum, and the Phoenix Zoo. It also contains Hunt’s Tomb, a white pyramid and viewpoint on top of a hill. Hunt’s tomb is the grave sight of some of Arizona’s early governors. In 2008 the tomb was added to the National Register of Historic Places. Another common attraction within Papago Park is the Hole in the Rock. The Hole in the Rock is a group of eroded openings in a red sandstone hill.

Phoenix Zoo: The Phoenix Zoo is the largest nonprofit zoo in the United States. The zoo first opened in Phoenix’s Papago Park in 1962. It operates on 125 acres of land and holds about 1,300 animals. The zoo is separated into four trails: The Arizona Trail (which contains American Southwest animal and plant life), the African Trail (African wildlife), the Tropics Trail (rainforest plants and animals), and the Children’s Trail (petting zoo). Arizona’s climate makes the zoo a great place for African and reptilian wildlife. Phoenix Zoo also contains a sanctuary for endangered animals. In the 1970s it helped bring the Arabian oryx back from near extinction. In addition, the zoo features camel rides, a safari train tour, and Stingray Bay.

Ben Avery Shooting Facility: The Ben Avery Shooting Facility is a public outdoor shooting range in northern Phoenix. It is the largest public shooting facility in the United States, at 1650 acres. That’s right, 1650 acres. This shooting range is larger than Papago Park. It first opened in 1960 though the efforts of outdoorsmen Ben Avery, Glenn C. Taylor, and Jim Beaman. They built the shooting range because the desert around the city had become a “battleground” of recreational shooting enthusiasts. Originally named the Black Canyon Shooting Range, it was renamed to the Ben Avery Shooting Facility in 1992. In 1970 the facility hosts the ISSF World Shooting Championships. Today the facility consists of 67 covered ranges, 5 field archery ranges, the Clay Target Center, an International Archery Federation Range, and a 99-site campground. The Arizona Game and Fish Department currently operates the facility.

St. Mary’s Basilica: Phoenix’s Saint Mary’s Basilica is officially named The Church of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix founded the Church in 1881, the same year the city of Phoenix became incorporated. The Basilica was finally completed in 1914 and dedicated in 1915. It is a large, Mission-Revival church and one of the oldest continuously used structures in the state of Arizona. It is the 32nd basilica in the United States and the only basilica in Arizona. St. Mary’s Basilica, in Phoenix’s Copper Square, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.

Camelback Mountain: Camelback Mountain is a distinctive mountain in Maricopa County, on the north side of Phoenix. Its name comes from its shape, which resembles the hump and the head of a kneeling camel. The rock near the mountain’s peak is Precambrian granite (around 1.5 billion years old). The camel’s “head” is red sedimentary stone that is about 25 million years old. In 1879 President Rutherford B. Hayes created a one million acre reservation around the mountain for the Pima and Maricopa American Indian Tribes. Soon after, Arizona’s government reversed this order to make the land available to white settlers. By the 1960s nearly all the land on Camel Mountain had been sold to private interests. In 1968 Senator Barry Goldwater helped preserve the highest elevations against development. Today two hiking trails ascend to the peak of Camel Mountain: Echo Canyon Trail and Cholla Trail.

Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza: The Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza is a park in front of the Arizona state capital complex that contains 29 memorials. Some memorials have been controversial while others have been criticized as “meaningless.” The plaza has also been the focal point of many protests and demonstrations. These are the current memorials located in the plaza: Wesley Bolin Memorial Marker, Father Kino Statue, Bushmasters Memorial, Arizona Pioneer Women Memorial, Ten Commandments Memorial, Cilvilian Conservation Corps Memorial, 4th Marine Division WWII, Law Enforcement Memorial, World War I Memorial, Confederate Troops Memorial, Jewish War Veterans Memorial, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, Armenian Martyrs Memorial, Desert Storm Memorial, American Merchant Seamen Memorial, Father Braun Memorial, Arizona Peace Officers Memorial, Korean War Memorial, USS Arizona Mast, USS Arizona anchor, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Ernest W. McFarland Memorial, Purple Heart Memorial, Arizona Workers Memorial/ El Pasaje, Arizona Crime Victims Monument, Arizona Law Enforcement Canine Memorial, Arizona 9/11 Memorial, Navajo Codetalkers Memorial, and Operation Enduring Freedom Memorial.
