Phoenix has a fascinating architectural history. Frank Lloyd Wright moved to Phoenix in 1937, where he built Taliesen West (his winter home) and the primary campus for The Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. In the ensuing years, Phoenix has attracted notable architects whose architectural studios embrace the challenges and opportunities afforded by the desert climate. The Phoenix Art Museum (designed in the late 1950s by Alden Dow, a Frank Lloyd Wright studen) hosts the southwest's largest collection of visual art.
Because of the area's warm, sunny climate, Phoenix offers a plethora of recreational activities and outdoor attractions. Golf, for example, is a top attraction in Phoenix, with more than 200 golf courses to choose from. The Phoenix Zoo is the largest privately owned, non-profit zoo in the United States. Adjoining the zoo, the Phoenix Botanical Gardens are widely acclaimed for their art and flora exhibits and educational programs, featuring the largest arid plant collection in the USA. Phoenix also serves as a hub for visits to the Grand Canyon and other Arizona attractions.
