First Friday of every month, Phoenix, Arizona, USA

On the first Friday evening of every month, visitors to Phoenix can join thousands of locals on the city's self-guided art walk.

With more than 70 participating galleries, venues and art-related spaces offering a huge diversity of artwork, it's a great way to soak up the spirit and culture of the city.

If you'd rather ride, free shuttles start at the First Fridays headquarters at the Phoenix Art Museum, or you can jump on or off at stops en route.

On March 19-20, Phoenix also hosts its annual Art Detour, which features additional open studios, mystery galleries, a juried exhibition and an art-related fundraiser.
