    • Cruise the Zoo - August 6th - 10th - Although the Phoenix Zoo is closed to foot traffic, they have opened up new dates where you can tour the zoo from the comfort of your air-conditioned car. They have also opened up some dates in September. Reservations are required and dates sell out, so book now if you are interested. 
    • Pop Up Events at WestWorldThese fun events take drive-in movies to another level. August 7th and 8th will feature an 80's themed GAME ON evening with socially-distanced gaming, a cosplay contest, a movie and more. 
    • Wonderspaces Arizona - This hard-to-describe, fascinating collection of art is open again with new exhibits and social distancing protocols.
    • Scottsdale Quarter - Scottsdale Quarter is offering free outdoor fitness classes all summer. Plus, in August they are doing a back-to-school donation drive, an animal shelter donation drive and kitten adoptions. 
    • Desert Botanical Garden - The Desert Botanical Garden is open again. Early hours admission(with reservation) and evening hours available.
    • Enjoy the Outdoors in Arizona - AZ Central pulled together a bucket list of things to do around our wonderful state. Think hikes, scenic drives, fishing holes and more. 
    • Arizona Boardwalk (formerly OdySea) - The Arizona Boardwalk is now open with safety protocols in place. Most of the attractions are open, but you will want to check and see if reservations are required for a specific attraction.
    • Great Wolf Lodge - The Great Wolf Lodge is open. Cool off in one of the many indoor and outdoor pools and enjoy all of the water park activities. 
    • Staycation at the Scottsdale Princess - Swim-up movies on Saturday nights and plenty of pools to beat the heat.
    • Visit the Musical Instrument Museum - The MIM is back and open. Enjoy learning about music from all over the globe. 
    • Top Golf Scottsdale - Ready to work on your golf game while having fun? Top Golf Scottsdale is open! And when you are ready for a full round, local courses are open.
