Phoenix bucketlist


I’ve been in Phoenix for ~over~ five years now and I realize there’s a lot that I haven’t done! While I’ve experienced some great times and have extremely AWESOME core group of friends, I know I’ve not done a few things. By the way, I am not actively dying or anything like that – just making a list of things you must do in Phoenix. Often people hear of cool things to do when they travel to an obscure city, but why not do those FUN things when at home?

Here’s my list of Phoenix bucketlist, especially for families. Please add your recommendations in the comments!

1) Railroad park – done

2) Hike a mountain – done

3) Grand Canyon (okay, not technically Phoenix) – done

4) Camp in the desert – done

5) Visit the Desert Botanical Garden

6) Musical Instrument Museum

7) Camelback Mountain

8) Wildlife World Zoo (even though I hate zoos!)

9) Hot Air Balloon Ride

10) Montezuma Well (north of the city) – done

11) You-pick farm

12) Meet the cows from our raw milk

13) Arizona Science Center – done

19) Eat prepared cactus – done

20) Prepare my own cactus

21) Mass at St. Mary’s Basilica
