“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

The sundial was interesting, but as a few reviewers have already mentioned, it's best to go when they are hang a festival in that it's located in the middle of a square surrounded by various shops.

“Beautiful surroundings but few shops wait for a festival”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

Interesting to see the third largest sundial in the western hemisphere. Many varieties of mature desert plants to see, a few small galleries,a few tourist shops and a few cafes. Best to visit when they have a festival.

“Sundial one of a kind”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Sundial is worth the trip. Nicely laid out town center. They have completed a landscaping upgrade in the last couple of years adding many varieties of desert plants to the botanical garden. There are also a couple of play areas for the children. Our grandkids loved the "gila monster" slide. There are many interesting shops, however the restaurant scene has been in flux the last year or so with the closing of Carefree Station and Saba's. The city is currently working on a plan to upgrade the amphitheater area. We live in the area and visit the town center on a weekly basis so we may be a bit biased.
