The Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix is a beautiful 50-acre desert garden with paved walking trails. It’s very peaceful and educational. Some walkways are in the direct sun and some are in the shade and there are plenty of benches if you’d like to relax. It was very hot when we visited, but we were prepared with hats, sunscreen, and water.There are 5 different trails to visit: Desert Discovery Trail, Sonoran Desert Nature Trail, Center for Desert Living Trail and Desert Wildflower Trail. If you want to learn about the desert plants and wildlife in the area, this is the place to go. We saw families of quails, roadrunners, squirrels, butterflies, hummingbirds, lizards, and a jackrabbit.There...Read More
