What To See

Taliesin West
Frank Lloyd Wright was one of the seminal American architects of the 20th century. Taliesin West was his desert home and studio, built between 1938 and 1940. Still home to an architecture school and open to the public for guided tours, it's a prime example of organic architecture with buildings incorporating elements and structures found in surrounding nature.

Goldfield Ghost Town
It's billed as the only authentic ghost town in the valley, suggesting there are some inauthentic ones waiting to be discovered. Goldfield Ghost Town dates back to a brief 1890s gold boom, when in typical style its construction was almost as rapid as its abandonment.

Tempe Center for the Arts
On the lake, it has a sculpture garden and infinity pool, outside of the curved-steel building. Inside, there's a theater for the performing arts and a 3500-sq-ft gallery.
