acclaimed Heard Museum now has three locations in the greater Phoenix area.

If you’ve been caught by the stark

beauty of the desert and feel called to pit your team against it, Arizona Outback Adventures’ Desert Survivor program tests participants’ survival skills in the Sonoran. Teams compete against one another in a series of subsistence skills challenges like water transport, fabricating a survival rope and setting up a shelter to protect the team from the elements. Stellar Adventures also offers guided

outdoor adventures. Tours use hummers, blazers, jeeps, or ATVs and can be combined with shooting, stargazing, night vision, and optional team building exercises.

Chase Field

If nature’s spectacles have worn your group out, Arizona professional sports teams are sure to entertain

from the comfort of stadium seats. The Greater Phoenix area is one of only eight metropolitan areas in the U.S. that has at least one team in each of the four major professional sports: baseball, basketball, football and hockey. The University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale is home of the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals. The 17,000-seat Arena nearby houses the NHL Coyotes. Chase Field in Downtown Phoenix is home to MLB’s Arizona Diamondbacks team and the NBA Phoenix Suns play only a block away at US Airways Center. As if this weren’t enough, other Phoenix-Tucson area professional sporting events include Cactus League Spring Training and a score of professional rodeos and bull riding events.
