    Amazing overview of world music via the instruments used to make it.
    The site is large, the museum spacious and modern. The overall layout is well designed, by area, by genre, by instrument type. Each exhibit has its own fascinating details, and most are paired with a video (audio headset included with admission) allowing you to hear the music. It's a broad and deep survey of world music.
    The fun sections include an antique mechanical player gallery, and a collection of famous instruments. Loved seeing Stevie Ray Vaughan's guitar, the drum set used by the Who at Woodstock, Pablo Cassal's cello... The list goes on.
    Highly recommended for any musician or music lover. You could spend an entire day here.

    We drove in around 3:30pm and had no challenges with parking. There are several parking sections as you drive up to the top of the mountain. You walk up the street to a path that goes to the Chapel. There are nice views and seating area on the outside of the Chapel.

    The gift shop was closed, or rather not letting new people in but it appeared to be down some stairs. We sat on a bench and prayed and reflected on our wonderful trip to Sedona. When we left, we noticed a person was manning a steel bar which blocked new cars from coming in around 4:45pm. I'm not sure if the entrance times change from May to other months but check that out.

    I am a Frank Lloyd Wright fan, but that is not a requirement to appreciate Taliesin West, in my opinion. Purchase your tickets online in advance. We choose the self guided tour and downloaded an app on our smartphones. Be sure to bring your own earbuds for convenience and quality. Have bottled water with you, it was allowed. There are some shaded areas to escape the direct sun. We chose to listen to the narration mostly in the inside spaces which were a little cooler but even the air conditioned area are not cold so be prepared. So interesting to experience Chihuly glass incorporated throughout. I thought it added to the experience in a colorful and meaningful way. I recommend this experience.

    This was an outstanding experience. The path through the desert was well crafted, offering a variety of plants and animals. There were plenty of shaded rest areas and places to refill water bottles. The trail included an aviary and a separate hummingbird aviary, plus a beautiful art gallery (featuring quilts depicting animals or landscapes), an underwater habitat, and more. The employees and volunteers we met were outstanding, and offered good information and tips. Be sure to remember the sunscreen and water!

    This is a Bucket List trip; wonderful colors and the Canyon itself is outstandingly beautiful.
    We took the Grand Canyon Train and Xanterra bus ride to get the most information before walking our feet off!

    Great stop while in the Sedona or Flagstaff area. Do the island trail, which is 1m and takes you down among the ruins and has many plaques telling of the history of the native peoples who lived here in the dwellings. It was pretty interesting. The small visitor center has a passport stamp 😁 for all you fellow national park nerds.

    When we went it wasn’t crowded at all and we had plenty of room to explore.

    We stayed at the Cholla Campground on the Tonto National Forest. The campground is ok. I think we got one of the best spots. #71. We reserved it online. This campground is for dry camping only. There are water spigots all over but you cannot hook them to your RV for filling the tank. There were a lot of potholes on the roads. Hopefully they fix that soon. We were there for a week. There was hardly anyone staying there. The hosts only came out on the weekend to check the spots. There are no showers in the bathrooms. There’s a couple of trails that lead to the marina. The Lake is huge! Bring all the food you’re going to need as there’s no stores near by.

    The Bell Rock pathway can be accessed by several parking lots off highway 179. The Bell Rock Vista parking lot seemed to be the largest of the 3 but they do fill up quickly. Several times, we returned in the afternoon around 3pm and there were parking slots available. You will need to buy a parking pass from the automated machine. You can buy 1 day pass for $5 or a week long pass for $15. The pass can be used at many of the hiking spots around Sedona.

    The pathway is a dirt pathway and sometimes is on a rock mountain edge but fairly easy path. Many signs to guide you on the right path or suggest other hiking trails in the area. You still should pay attention to your directions and notice landmarks to help you return to your car. Many cactus and spring flowers were blooming. You can walk as long as you like, long or short. Great colors of the red rocks and blue sky. Remember to take some water and snacks if you stay out awhile.

    I am 65 and it was a challenging hike but it was truly a great experience and the sunset was unbelievable. I would highly recommend it.

    This is a must do for any visit to the area.

    They have made big improvements to the complex. There is a $10 fee to get in. There is a large parking lot with ample parking and several restrooms. Use the restroom here as there are no facilities at the viewing site.

    The walk to the viewing are is roughly .8 of a mile. The trail has been upgraded, and now includes a couple of shaded rest areas.

    The viewing area is best viewed at sunrise, sunset, or near the middle of the day due to sun positioning and the shadows it produces in the canyon. there is ample room for viewing, but only a small area is protected by railings. If you bring young kids you will have to be vigilant.

    i visited at sunset, and gnats were swarming. i am unsure if this is a year-round problem or a seasonal issue. You might want to bring bug spray just in case.

    The gardens are lovely and the Chihuly exhibit makes the experience fabulous. Be sure to visit in the evening when the glass is lit up. We were able to view in the daylight and then again at sunset. The gallery closes at 8pm so be sure to plan accordingly. The gift shop has a beautiful selection of gift items. I highly recommend visiting during the Chihuly exhibit, it’s worth it.

    Great place to stay in your rv. The camp site are clean and neat, they have fire pit and picnic table. The trailer spot is quarter minus and is well maintained. The grounds and trail system is awesome. Clean and neat bathrooms on site. The visitor center is also really neat as well. They ah e some snakes in cages to see on display. We walked to the pond and really enjoyed seeing that. We would be back if we come through the area again.

    The Superstition Mountains look more impressive the closer you get as you hike. The view from the road or parking lot do not do it Justice! The hike is not challenging until the last 25% of it. Make sure it is dry when you go. It was sprinkling out which made it very slippery on the steep rocks at the top.

    Bucketlist item! We went in April 2019 and the weather was warm, but the water was on the cooler side for me. Definitely hope to do this again one day!
