Me at one of my many trips to The Coronado.
I stayed at FOUND:RE, a boutique art-filled hotel in the heart of downtown Phoenix and I must say it was one of my most enjoyable stays at a hotel to date (that says a lot coming from a person with a slight hotel phobia). I especially loved the industrial loft look of the rooms.
TRAVEL TIP: I like to group and hang all of my vacation outfits as soon as I arrive. Makes getting ready for each outing so much easier!
Hanging out at the pool. I was definitely feeling the setup.
Driving up to Dobbins Point at South Mountain Park. Stunning overlook!
P.S.- if I never have to drive through winding mountains with steep inclines and no rails again I will not be upset. All I kept thinking about was one false move and it’s over! LOL!
Took a sightseeing tour of Canyon Lake on the Dolly Steamboat. Highly recommend!
– WHAT I ATE –
Breakfast at The Coronado. The food here is SO tasty that I went 3 times during my trip!
Dinner at Compass Arizona Grill – the only revolving rooftop restaurant in Arizona with 360 degree views of the city. I had to get a bit crafty with creating a meal that I could eat, but it was yummy and being able to watch the sunset behind the mountains and take in the vastness of Phoenix made for an absolutely enjoyable dinner.
Lunch at Green New American Vegetarian. My food was good, but I’ve had better.
Happy Hour spot of choice Thirsty Lion. $4.95 margaritas and uber delish garlic sesame edamame and chipotle hummus & flatbread (I asked them to skip the cheese). So good I went back the next day for a re-do!
