This unique museum is the largest of its kind in the world. With over 15,000 musical instruments from nearly 200 countries and territories, music fanatics and world culture scholars can plan to spend at least a few hours exploring the museum. Keep this timeframe in mind when coordinating your Phoenix transportation plans, so your driver can pick you up from the front entrance and whisk you to lunch or dinner soon afterwards.

7. Roosevelt Row
Whether you’re on the hunt for a unique souvenir, a precious masterpiece, or just a good cup of coffee, this Phoenix arts district is the place to be. Many of the concrete buildings along this stretch of East Roosevelt Street are adorned with murals and street art, creating a vibrant backdrop for your excursions through the galleries, cafes, and boutiques of the area. While most of Roosevelt Row is easily walkable in a day, this district is located quite some distance from the more popular Phoenix hotels, so book a private bus to avoid a long walk over multiple city blocks.

8. Heritage Square
Want to catch a slice of living history in the heart of Phoenix’s sprawling metropolis? Out-of-towners will not want to miss touring this neighborhood, the oldest remaining residential block within city limits. The Square features ten fully-restored buildings originally built in the late 19th century, offering guests a gateway to life and culture during Phoenix’s founding. Tour one of the square’s many museums, attend an event with your Girl Scout troop or field trip, or simply grab a bite to eat at the Lath Pavilion’s coffee bar.
