Things To Do During our 10 days in the Phoenix area?

We are staying with family in Mesa starting 3/20/2013 for 10 days. We are at the Marriott in Flagstaff one night and the Best Western near the Grand Canyon one night. What other sites should we take in?

Any favorite watering holes or restaurants?

Really enjoyed eating at the blue adobe grille good food and very reasonable.

We were very impressed with the Heard museum of native American art- pottery, jewelry, baskets etc.

We also took a hot air balloon ride which was fun

Head out for a day to Tortilla Flat, Canyon Lake, Roosevelt Lake and Dam, Superstition Mtns, Goldfield Ghost Town...definitely head up for some time in Sedona, look at the Pink Jeep Tours for some adventure.

Sedona is a few hours north of the Phoenix area, and it's a nice small town to visit. Beautiful scenery (lots of red rock buttes), and they have some small touristy shops down the main drag strip. You can take the "Pink Jeep Tours" if you want, where they drive you up and down some hairy roads for fun!

There's lots of Indian ruins in the upper Arizona area, such as Montezuma's Castle (cliff dwellings). You also have the small town of Prescott which has some nice antique stores and shops, restaurants.

If you're into military history, head south from Phoenix to the Titan Missile Silo Museum in Green Valley (close to Tucson). This is a decommissioned Missile base where you can explore the an Cold War relic and take the tour. There's also the Aircraft Boneyard (forget the actual name) where you can checkout out old airplanes that are stored in the dry Arizona desert.

Along that same area there's the Mammoth underground caverns which is a cool tour of some underground caves.
