Goin back to Phoenix, AZ

Hey all, well I just found out that I am going to Phoenix, Arizona with winter with my dad for vacation. Cool, I know. lol

There are certain things that I am going to have to go to again:

the zoo,

the desert botanical gardens,

maybe the scenic railroad again; stuff like that but I really want to try something new and “broaden my horizons” or some such nonsense. I know that I can have a good time just “putzing” around the city and finding some cool things but I sorta want a plan. We’re only gonna be there for about a week so I don’t want to waste it.

So, if anyone has any cool ideas, please send them my way. I would love to try something different, I am an adventurous eater and I can somewhat overcome my fear of heights if I can get a cool shot. lol Are there any cool, out of the way places that anyone knows about? What are the cool local joints around for food and the like?

I really appreciate this. Thanks all for your help in advance. :)
ps. We are probably gonna be going down to Tucson so if anyone has any cool places there, it would be much appreciated.

    Have you gone to Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West? It is near Scottsdale. I was in Phoenix for 4 days in 2007. I wished it was more. There is an art and science area down by the baseball stadium if I remember right.

    @neanderthalis I had seen that when I was planning last year but we just couldnt swing it. I might go this time though. Thanks for the tip. I feel like this time, I'm gonna go about the trip in a different frame of mind. Should be interesting.
