Go to the Lost Dutchman State Park for hiking and a great view of the Superstition mountains. It's about 40 minutes east of Phoenix off Hwy 60 in Apache Junction. To see a wonderful variety of desert flowers, the Desert Botanical Garden is the place to go. Just wander through the various gardens, grab lunch, take pictures. It will be a good day. Then, head over to the Zoo, as it is a fun place as well.
