Arizona Toy and Doll Museum
This small museum is located in the historic Stevens House on Heritage Square in downtown Phoenix. The miniature classroom peopled by doll students is a favorite exhibit. With dolls dating from the 19th century, this is a definite must for doll collectors. It’s only a short walk from the hotel!
Forget about polar bears and other cold-climate creatures; this zoo focuses its attention primarily on animals that come from climates similar to that of the Phoenix area. All animals are kept in naturalistic enclosures, and with all the palm trees and tropical vegetation, this zoo – just 15 minutes from Hyatt Regency – sometimes manages to make you forget you're in the desert.
Water World Safari
With more than 16 water rides and cool attractions open seasonally, Water World Safari is adventure, relaxation and fun for everyone in the family. Congo River Rapids is a mini water world for mini water sliders and python serpentine slides are thrills for all ages.
Arizona Children’s Museum
With hands-on, interactive exhibits designed for your youngest children up to age 10, the Museum focuses on learning through play, with emphasis on early childhood education and school-readiness.
Arizona Science Center
Enjoy its 120,000 square feet of science-themed fun for the whole family, including a planetarium and IMAX theater! This exciting destination is just a short walk from the hotel.
