What to do in Phoenix
There is a very important reason – perhaps the main one – to hire a car in Phoenix. Streets here lead to nowhere. Think about those American movies where the main characters are driving on a straight route with the wind through their hair and nobody in sight. Well, this is exactly what you get near Phoenix. In truth, the city has some very interesting sights, such as the contemporary painting collections in the Phoenix Art Museum; the Heard Museum devoted to the history, art, and culture of the Navajo Indians, who still inhabit the area; the 59hectare Desert Botanical Garden where you can find the typical Arizona flora. Inside the Garden, there are picnic areas, jogging pathways, and cycling and horse lanes. There is also a museum that will make your kids happy. Over 350 interactive structures allow the visitor to make experiments over computers, weather phenomena, physics, and biology; along with it, there is a cinema with a huge screen where you can watch five stories about the Wild West and the NASA Agency; and a planetarium in which laser shows are performed with aweinspiring Pink Floyd and The Doors soundtracks. Phoenix, finally, is famous for its Old Town. Scottsdale is composed of buildings dating back to the turn of the twentiethcentury to which recent constructions have been added. The final result is a very faithful reproduction of the Old West times.
