In April I will be accompanying Gerry as he goes to a conference in Scottsdale, Arizona.But we will be flying into Phoenix so visiting both places while in the area. It will be so nice to get away to the heat of the desert after a rough winter at home. It will be our first time too to see a giant cactus!
Scottsdale is very close to Phoenix itself; it is sometimes described as “Desert Version of Miami’s South Beach”. There is a lot of restaurants, some outstanding shopping, sports and recreation. Scottsdale also has a very hip and happening night scene, meaning that there is plenty to do when the lights go out. Scottsdale is also a great place to wander around and just enjoy the architecture and the design of the city itself.
Phoenix has the sixth largest population in the United Sates and the city is booming with things to explore. The city has a large food scene as well as performing arts scene, plus a few nature parks scattered throughout if you want to get away from it all.
We are very excited about our upcoming journey, and it will make what is left of winter a little more bearable. It's nice too because Gerry's company he works for is paying for the trip- we'll just be paying for my plane fair and Jake's stay at the kennels while we're gone. Another plus is that we put all of the trip on our points credit card, and the company will reimburse us!
Stay tuned for more posts on our upcoming trip!
