Phoenix for a week at the end of January

by dennyandconnie

This is our first visit to the area and are looking for: restaurants (where do the locals eat?); don't miss sites; we love to wander old neighborhoods; mild hiking. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Cafe Boa on Mill Ave is fantastic. Nice place to wander also. I also find Greasewood Flats fun. For a nice lunch, try the deli at The Sportsmans on Camelback

RE: Phoenix for a week at the end of January

Phoenix has a lot of chain restaurants. There are some excellent non-chain places around the Central/Thomas area though. One chain I would recommend though is the Macayo's on Central. The architecture and ambiance are enough to get me in the door.
Phoenix is a new city so there aren't a lot of old neighborhoods. One idea is to drive east on Palm Lane from Central Avenue (north of Mc Dowell, just look at a map). Central Avenue itself offers some gorgeous homes and neighborhoods north of Camelback Road. There's also a cute, older urban neighborhood Downtown bounded by Roosevelt, Van Buren, Central and 7th Ave. That one is certainly walkable, but the majority of Phoenix is not.
Don't miss sites: the Heard Museum, the Botanical Gardens, Pueblo Grande Park/Museum, Mesa Southwest Museum. Mill Avenue should also be experienced, but it's mostly a college scene. Also be sure to check out Old Town Scottsdale.
For hiking you'll hear a lot of "Camelback Peak" and "South Mountain" but these are crowded, and Camelback is pretty difficult. I'd suggest heading east into the Superstitions, maybe do part of the Lost Dutchman Trail or jump on part of the Arizona Trail. It'll be cooler out there and they'll be much less crowded.

Travel Tips for Phoenix

Descendants of the "Hohokam"

by spartan

The Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community was created by Executive Order on June 14, 1879 by President Rutherford B. Hayes. The community is located in Maricopa County and lies aside the boundaries of Mesa, Tempe, Scottsdale, Fountain Hills and metropolitan Phoenix. The Community consists of 52,600 acres, comprised mostly of agricultural lands. These lands harvest a variety of crops; i.e., cotton, watermelon, honeydew, casaba, cantaloupe, potato, brown onions, carrots, and other agricultural products.

Salt River Bridge at Roosevelt Dam

by BruceDunning

This bridge became the backbone for creating a dam system to serve the Phoenix area. Before that dam process, and canals around the valley were formed/carved out by Indian tribes from back as far as 2000Bc per what I read. The Hohocam and Apache tribes are some that used the river system to thrive and live for the necessity of water.
The Salt River canyon is a 2000 feet decline carved out over the years, and is on Hwy 60, about 40 miles north of Globe; and 140 miles east of Phoenix. I did not get that far to see it, but the winding road and switchbacks sounded adventuresome.
Four lakes hold the water for the needs of the valley residents; Roosevelt, Apache, CAnyon and Saguaro lakes. None are large-being about 10 miles in length, but hold back enough to serve 4 million people. What is left by the time it gets to the valley is a pittance trickle, and what a shame. None is left for anyone downriver-or stream as you may wish. Canals direct the flow around the city

Tapas Restaurant Scottsdale

by lashr1999 about Tapas Restaurant Scottsdale

Inside the Restaurant are banquettes in faux suede, artificial flowers and red colorations. We sat on one of the cozy outside tables to sample some of the Spanish food. I ordered a dish of pork flavored with pears which comes with choriza and potatoes. My mother ordered one of the fish dishes.The service was excellent, the water was filled. I had asked that I be served the dessert first and it was brought out right away. I opted for the fried ice cream. I am not sure if it was fried but it is ice cream covered in chopped nuts. It was excellent and a nut lovers dream. The main courses were good. My mother enjoyed her dish as I did mine. The pork would have been bland if it was offered alone. However, the choriza punched it up a bit and complemented it. The fried Ice cream!

P.F. Changs China Bistro

by Chiky about P.F. Changs China Bistro (Chain)

This very eclectic menu has a strong Chinese influence but tends to borrow from other Pan-Asian dishes. Everything is served family style but usually is enough for 1 and a 1/2 people. All restaurants are non-smoking and usually have a wait for dinner of at least 30 minutes. The Vegetarian Lettuce Wraps are my absolute favorite but the Kung Pao Chicken is a close second!

Taliesin West

by DrexelDragon

It's out in Scottsdale, and if you enjoy architecture then you should drive out there to see it. The admission fee is about $20US. There is also a shop where you can browse books, art, accessories, home furnishings, and etc. I simply bought a poster and a Lexan paper weight, but I considered the $1,500 clock...yeah right.

Anyway, I enjoy architecture in my own right even though I'm no expert. I have seen many photos of Frank Lloyd Wright's many works all of which I have been very impressed. I had seen photos of Taliesin West before as well, and unfortunately, I must admit that I wasn't too impressed. Let me rephrase...I thought there was going to be more and it would be larger. Now, to some extent there parts of the property that are off limits. However, to access those you need to take a more expensive tour, and some are inaccessible regardless. They run a school there, and they maintain privacy for their students.

Regardless, drive out there, have a look around, and be able to say you saw one of America's most influential works of architecture in US history.
