The Desert Botanical Garden is a top ten Phoenix attraction, even for families. It boasts the world's largest collection of desert plants in a natural setting and the garden's dynamic events schedule includes many programs specifically geared to children. Tour the galleries and gardens. Take to the trails. See cacti, succulents, and wildflowers. Spot desert plants in bloom. Find out how Arizona's early inhabitants used plants for food, fiber and medicine. Pick up a Cacti Quest, geared to children aged 8 to 11, and turn a visit into a hunt for nature. Participate in a family program and, in addition to learning about flora, make crafts and have fun. Plan your trip to coincide with one of the many special events, such as the annual Las Noches de las Luminarias, and experience the gardens differently.
