As its names suggests, this outdoor museum showcases desert plants—and not just those native to the American Southwest. Among the succulents that adorn the garden’s 50-acre grounds are endangered desert species from around the world, including Daliesque trees from North Africa and cactuses from South America. You’ll get the most out of the garden on a docent-guided tour, and nighttime flashlight tours are offered from May through August. The Desert Botanical Garden is nestled among the red sandstone buttes of Papago Park, also home to leisurely hiking trails and the Phoenix Zoo.
