Pleasant weather makes enjoyable getaways, and ground transportation readily available. City Center, everything is in walking distance. Do take some time and venture outside the metro Phoenix area.

Meandering paths take you through beautiful lawns to various memorials with interesting plaques explaining the significance of each. The USS Arizona anchor,...More

This memorial was extensive, impressive, and so well presented. There were so many representations, I could have spent literally hours looking around. The K9 memorial moved me, as well as the beautiful McFarland memorial. Of course, the 'Arizona' is such a huge part of our...More

I love that this park memorializes many groups of people (and even police dogs) giving each one an amazing amount of respect.

While the statutes of military war veterans are very moving, the one I thank most people should see is the one to the NAVAJO CODE TALKERS. Their story is one of the greatest of WWII. One more that is on my list of must see,...More
