Desert Botanical Garden
To appreciate how lush and vibrant the desert can be, pay a visit to the Desert Botanical Garden, 140 serene acres set amid the red rocks of the Papago Buttes. It’s the result of tireless conservation efforts to maintain the desert ecology—and suggests what the area here has had to offer since long before our arrival. Stroll through the DBG’s winding paths and be entranced by the 50,000 specimens, including wildflowers, succulents and, of course, majestic cacti.
