3 Kid-Friendly Activities in Scottsdale
- OdySea Aquarium
- The OdySea Aquarium is an excellent option to enjoy any time of year in Arizona. This state-of-the-art facility is the largest aquarium in Arizona and has more than 65 exhibits and 370 species on display to see and experience. There is something for all ages to enjoy and if you want a truly one-of-a-kind experience they have a special experience called SeaTREK Underwater Helmet Diving where you get to put on an OdySea Aquarium wetsuit and SeaTREK helmet and walk underwater among the fish, stingrays, and sharks.
- Butterfly Wonderland
- Butterfly Wonderland is located right next to OdySea Aquarium so it can be fun to do both in one day but is a fun experience all on its own. Visit the largest butterfly conservatory in America where you learn about conservation and enjoy a truly immersive experience where you not only see but are surrounded by thousands of butterflies of various types as well as other insects and birds.
- Phoenix Zoo
- Spanning 125 acres and boasting approximately 1,200 animals on display, there is plenty to do and see at the Phoenix Zoo. Whether you simply want to walk around and see all of the animals, feed a giraffe, ride a camel, or walk amongst the monkeys, there is something for everyone to enjoy. There is also a splash pad for kids to enjoy when it is hot out and tons of food and drinks to keep everyone full and happy!
