Arizona - Scottsdale Oldtown
No vacation would be complete for Rich without wandering through an old church. The Old Adobe Mission is the oldest church in Scottsdale and was totally hand-made by the congregation including the bricks and the stainglass windows. The church went out of use in the 1950s and was going torn down but now has been saved and is being restored. The stainglass windows went missing for many years but were recently found stored away in some local resident's basement.
And of course, there are plenty of souvenir shops as well as public scupltures of Southwest art.
