Botanical Garden
“The Desert Botanical Gardens is a must visit in my opinion unless you hate plants. Very vast and unique selection of desert landscaping with lots of photo opportunities. They also do seasonal events such as during Fall/Halloween season they light up the park and have pumpkins everywhere. Many locals get the annual pass because it is a better deal if you visit more than once per year or bring a couple guests with you.”
