    SO impressed with this wonderful place and their goals to rehabilitate and release animals back to their natural environment. And when that is not feasible, they provide a wonderful sanctuary for those that can't be released. And Cathie was so knowledgeable and did a great job!

    You don't necessarily have to be a big Frank Lloyd Wright fan to enjoy the exterior/interior 90 minute tour. It was extremely interesting...our guide was very engaging and I was amazed at how much we learned from him (wish I could remember his name!). It wasn't cheap: $54 per adult, but it was totally worth it. Just keep in mind that there is no food or drink available on the premises.

    Nice short visit. It was very established for the tourists, but still cute

    A little bit annoying with all the parked cars in fort of the nice shops.

    This was more fun than expected. Started off in the large indoor model train display. This had 3 huge tracks run by local train enthusiasts. So many details to inspect. A few sections of the model were also interactive. Outside were some authentic train cars, Pullmans if I remember. There is also a museum located in an old train depot, one of many that were saved a brought to the park throughout the years. You can also ride on a small scale train. There is a huge playground for the kids. There is also a large sculpture dedicated Bill Keane the creator of Family Circus who lived in Scottsdale and had quite a connection to the community (Google Sugar Bowl & PF Changs).

    This museum has anything and everything about historical western life. The exhibits and artifacts and the art on display are just fantastic. There is a reason this is rated the best Western museum around. It is not only architecturally astounding but the quality and availability of the displays are second to none!

    Great hike! Be aware no water available at trailhead (although they have the nicest composting toilets I have ever seen). Also, there is a significant uphill climb and then it levels off a bit. We went on to the Lookout which was nice because most people turn around at the thumb. Much less crowded and a GREAT view. Drawbacks: despite multiple signs instructing dog owners to pick up poop (“there is no poop fairy”) there was a significant amount of dog poop on the trail, some of it bagged (I don’t get it….)

    Very Interesting Place, Great 3d intro Movie , Very nice To take Kids to see butterflies and Learn How the evolve. Just a heads up, Don’t try and pay with 100 Bill. They don’t except 100 Bills, ridiculous? Yes! Other wise for 65 dollars for 2 people was worth it. They have snack bar, bathrooms as well as souvenirs.

    The last time that I was in Scottsdale, I stopped into Fashion Square and was amazed at both the upscale stores and crowds. So on this trip I returned since I had the better part of a day to explore. The upscale stores were still present, but the crowds were like a ghost mall. I guess people are predisposed to shop online.

    We stopped in on a Saturday morning and the place wasn’t busy. It basically sits in the middle of Penskes dealerships. That being said the collection and limited placards with descriptions are really cool and worth seeing if you enjoy racing. Probably 30 minutes is enough. The gentleman at the counter was quite friendly.

    Really enjoyed the aquarium but I thought the price was a little high, with all the taxes it came to $111 for two people. probably would not go again, but it certainly was a worthwhile visit.
