The Desert Botanical Garden is a natural environment where you may see jackrabbits, squirrels, desert tortoises and other small animals. For bird watchers, there are dozens of species of native and migratory birds, from jewel-like hummingbirds to the desert hawks that circle gracefully overhead.
The internationally acclaimed Heard Museum is one of the best places to experience the fascinating cultures and art of the Native Americans of the Southwest. Large collections of artifacts, including baskets, jewelry, Kachina dolls, pottery and textiles are represented. Examples of traditional and contemporary Native American fine art, including paintings and sculpture, are also on exhibit.
American architect Frank Lloyd Wright loved Arizona, and it was in northeast Scottsdale that he created one of his most stunning masterpieces: Taliesin West, a complex of buildings, served as his personal home, studio and architectural campus from 1937 until his death. Its design is an excellent example of Wright's philosophy of harmonizing architectural design with nature. Taliesin West still serves as a workshop for students who study at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture.
