This gorgeous collection of Samurai armor will remain on display at the Phoenix Art Museum until July 16. Not a fan of armor? There are plenty more great art exhibits to see in the Valley.

Into the sunset

The next time you’re near WestWorld in Scottsdale, definitely drop by to check out this sculpture. At night it even lights up.

The fifth floor of the Burton Barr Central Library in Phoenix offers some lighting effects only visible at solar noon during the solstice.

Altitude adjustment

There are no shortage of Horseshoe Bend photos, but most of them are from the same perspective so you can see the stunning horseshoe shape. This photo proves that being down in the canyon can be just as awesome.
