Best Tourist Attraction (2013)

Cosanti

You can drive more than an hour north of the Valley for a somewhat anticlimactic visit to Paolo Soleri's pie-in-the-sky Arcosanti, or you can pay homage to the late artist and visionary with a quick stop at Cosanti, his bronze bell factory tucked in the heart of Paradise Valley. Chances are, that's what Aunt Mildred from Michigan is after, anyway — one of Soleri's infamous wind chimes. All good. She can grab one or three, and you both can learn a bit about arcology and check out Soleri's original home, where he lived, worked, and died earlier this year.
