Those who find themselves in Arizona this summer may become weary of the heat. It may seem hard to have fun when the temperature quickly rises into the triple digits, but there are many ways to still have a worthwhile time without being caught in the sun. Arizona offers many great historical, cultural and educational sites throughout the state that can be explored. All Points Accommodations presents four that cannot be missed when traveling to the Grand Canyon State this summer.
The Arizona Capital Museum is the best choice for those wanting to learn more about the history of Arizona. Located in the heart of Downtown Phoenix, the museum is housed in Arizona’s original capital building. The building has many historical exhibits and monuments that include relics from the USS Arizona after the Pearl Harbor attacks as well the State Seal. In front of the museum is also the Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza, which is home to monuments and war memorials that honor heroes, soldiers and other historic figures and events. All Points Accommodations recommends this site as the perfect place to learn about these significant events and people as well as get a feel for the history of Arizona, especially since admission to both is free.
The Arizona Museum of Natural history is another great historical stop, especially for those more interested in nature and prehistoric plants and animals. Here, guests can learn about history from the dinosaurs, to the ancient peoples of North America and through to the early days of Arizona itself. The museum is located in Mesa and is a great spot for kids to explore in between visiting water parks and time spent in the pool.
For those with little ones, All Points Accommodations advises a trip to the Children’s Museum of Phoenix. For kids ages 10 and under, the museum has activities, programs and classes. Kids attending the museum can build forts, play in a kid-sized supermarket, crawl through a forest of foam noodles, drive bikes down mock roads and experience the Schuff-Perini Climber among other things. The museum also offers exhibits that aid in the development of babies and toddlers by giving them a safe place to explore with items to engage their senses.
Finally, All Points Accommodations recommends the Musical Instrument Museum. Located in Scottsdale, the museum is the only one in the world that is solely devoted to displaying and educating visitors about musical instruments from across the globe. Instruments from around the world are highlighted as well as prominent musical artists who have made significant contributions to the musical community. The museum also has exhibits on self-playing instruments, such as player pianos and an experience gallery where visitors can play a variety of instruments from all over the world.
All Points Accommodations knows that any of these destinations will create a unique memory for those who visit and they are all a great way to spend some time during the hot months in Arizona.
