Ten Unique Places to Take House Guests in the West Valley

Having friends and family visit from out-of-town is a nice treat, but you may not want to spend the whole time cooped up at home. We’ve scoured the town to bring you some of the top West Valley attractions.

  •  Cerreta Candy Company

  •  Corral West Adventures

  •  Challenger Space Center
    This museum is Arizona's only museum dedicated to all things space and The Center features artifact exhibits, interactive activities and simulated missions.

 

  •  Lake Pleasant Regional Park
    The largest lake in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area, the park itself covers over 23,000 acres and is a great spot for camping, boating, fishing, swimming, hiking and picnicking.  Also at the park is Indian Mesa where at the top of the Mesa are the ruins of a village built by the Hohokam Puebloans about 1000 years ago.

  •  Phoenix International Raceway
