Phoenix Points of Pride


The Phoenix Pride Commission was created in 1991 to foster a sense of community pride.  At that time, 25 places around the city were chosen as places that residents would be proud to tell visitors to see when visiting the city.  Right now there are 31 such places and they are designated by this sign somewhere on the property of each.  This sign sits in front of the Heard Museum right on Central Avenue.  I looked at that list of 31 and found several I haven't featured before.  I had better get busy.

My ten year old post is here.

It is apparently not so well know with the locals and tourists. Most tourists look in their Lonely Planets...:) But the idea is nice.

That's a great idea and the Heard is definitely a place to visit.
