Arizona’s biggest city, Phoenix, is also one of the biggest cities in the US due to its large land area. Situated in the Sonoran Desert it was established as a city in the late 19th century and is famous for its rich political history.
If you would like to learn more about its cultural background it is worth visiting the array of cultural centres dotted throughout the city. The Heard Museum is world renowned for its look at Native American cultures, with a particular focus on New Mexico as well as Arizona. If you prefer your history a little more hands on then you should visit the Pueblo Grande Museum and Archaeological Park. It is the only one of its kind within the US, and you can learn about the pre-Columbian Hohokam civilisation.
In the evening Phoenix offers a range of entertainment options. You can listen to a classical concert by the Phoenix Symphony, watch an opera production at the Arizona Opera, or attend a play at the Arizona Theatre Company, which is located in the Herberger Theatre complex. There is also the Phoenix Theatre, which hosts the New Works Festival that takes place every year in July.
