• Taliesin West - Scottsdale, Arizona

      Taliesin West was created by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1937 as his winter home, studio and eventual school in the gorgeous desert landscape of Scottsdale, Arizona. He could have never dreamed the impact he would have on future architects and that his simple desert getaway would become an iconic landmark which hundreds of tourists visit every day. Tours are offered almost every day and range from one to three hours, depending on the tour you choose. It's an amazing place to visit and the modern, open areas seem like the site was just created recently.

      If you go:
      Since the site was created in 1937, it is not wheelchair-friendly at all so check before you go about special tours. If you visit in the summer, be aware that it is extremely hot in Scottsdale then and the buildings are not air-conditioned so take water with you and take breaks in the shady areas. There is a nice little gift shop on the property and they also have cold water you can purchase. The tours are very popular so book early and arrive on time because they leave promptly.
