Looking for an unusual place to celebrate Father’s Day?

Take your dad to Arizona State University’s Deer Valley Rock Art Center to see the petroglyphs, native plants and desert creatures.

On Father’s Day, June 20, DVRAC invites visitors to pay one regular admission, with dad’s ticket free, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Deer Valley Rock Art Center has the largest concentration of Native American petroglyphs in the Phoenix Valley.

Visitors hike a 1/4-mile trail to view more than 1,500 petroglyphs made between 800 and 5,000 years ago. The museum aims to promote preservation, connection and respect for the site and is a destination for families to learn about archaeology in their own backyard. The Center is managed by one of the top archaeology programs in the country at

Arizona State University and is a Phoenix Point of Pride. DVRC is located at 3711 W. Deer Valley Road, two blocks west of 35th Avenue.
