While visiting my family in Arizona, my grandparents from Montana came down to see me! While they visited, we decided to go check out the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix. It was early spring and the desert flowers had just bloomed. Also, there was also a temporary butterfly exhibit which was totally cool!
I loved this little day trip! They have done such a great job with the exhibits and I learned a lot! Plus, they have a cafe on site with a great patio where you can do lunch after your tour. It's a must see if you are in Phoenix during the spring time.
