Event Price: $699.00

Though it was the last territory in the continental U.S. to gain its statehood, Arizona is home to many national treasures. The long history from before statehood can best be captured at Heard Museum , an internationally recognized collection dedicated to the advancement of American Indian art in all forms, including dance, pottery and paintings. The Heard Museum also features an exhibit called “Away from Home: American Indian Boarding School Stories,” which captures the often-untold stories of the American Indians and their experiences during the assimilation period, beginning in the 1870s.

The Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix is home to more than 50,000 species of cactuses, trees and flowers from throughout the region and deserts around the world, all on display throughout its 140 acres (55 of which are cultivated).
