Joo, could you be more specific? There are a lot of interesting places, but I don't know if you mean a zoo, restaurant or strip club

That's quite a ways from Phoenix (Grand Canyon). Not sure why you posted in Chinese, but we can always Google translators (which is what I did).

As far as interesting in Phoenix...First Friday Artwalk downtown is really good. The zoo, if you have little kids. The botanical garden in April, when the cactuses bloom.

Tempe and Scottsdale are the best if you are just visiting and looking for the best night-life.

Smile things for a newcomer to get acquainted

- Go to the Phoenix Improv Festival next weekend (April 4th & 5th) at the Herberger Theatre in downtown Phoenix. You can laugh a bit and use the trip to get the lay of the land in Downtown.

- Go to the First Friday Artwalk (1st Friday of every month, also in Downtown Phoenix and see all sorts of random things.

- Get some Ice Cream at the Sugar Bowl in Scottsdale, and then wander around the Old Town on foot and explore the interesting stuff that's not on the major streets: art galleries, weird statues of horses, gelato, and so on.

- Drive to the Phoenix Mountain Park off of Glendale Ave & 24th Street. It's amazing to enter the little desert valley surrounded by mountains in the middle of a vast city and a way to experience the desert without driving far. It's probably getting too hot to hike to the top of Piestewa Peak, but if you bring water and energy along, you'l be rewarded with a great view of Phoenix.

- Drive & park near Tempe Beach Park and then wander south down Mill Avenue to get a feel for Tempe.

- Visit the Desert botanical gardens and Phoenix Zoo.

- For some historical context -- to see what Phoenix was like 1,500 years ago -- visit the Pueblo Grande Museum.

- For contemporary native american culture, I've found the Heard Museum very interesting.

- For (New) Mexican food have something with Carne Adovada in it at the Blue Adobe Grille in downtown Mesa.

Hope this gets you started. Phoenix doesn't have a big concentrated area of interest like other cities, it's more like a thousand things spread out over a 30 mile radius. There's always something interesting to do as long as you're willing to drive and can afford the gas.
