More or less within the Saguaro NP you can find the Sonoran Desert Museum. It is more an outdoor park & zoo showcasing desert flora and fauna than a classical museum. I really enjoyed it and wished I have had more time over there. For me, the hummingbirds were the highlight. I actually have seen a wild one in L.A.'s Chinatown, but here in the walk-in aviary they had so many different ones. One prettier than the other.

... trails in the park and a number of hiking trails. There is a bird watching trail and an interpretive trail that winds around the Romero Ruins, the site of a Hohokam village occupied 500-1450. It costs $25 and if you reserve a site a $5 fee is added on. The bath house is one of the nicest we have seen in two months of traveling – new and clean. Very nice! There is a Wal-Mart right across the street from the ...
