Fountain Hills Things to Do

  • Lots of Amazing Bronze Statues in...

    The community of Fountain Hills is very impressive -- they have dotted several areas in their community with amazing pieces of bronze art! And remember, these expensive works were not bought using tax money --- they were sponsored by private corporations and builders, and even donations from rich people in Fountain Hills. They also hold some...

  • Water Fun for kids (and myself) at...

    We were here in Fountain Hills on a 100 degree hot summer day (May 31, 2009) --- and what a relief when we saw that Fountain Park had an amazing water park! It had waterguns that you can direct at unsuspecting kids and adults who are enjoying the coolness. The twins had so much fun, and so I decided to go with them and run through the amazing jets...

  • Visit World's Fourth Tallest Fountain in...

    I have heard of this very tall fountain before but for some reason, it took me eight years of living in Arizona before I visited the World's FOURTH largest fountain in Fountain Hills, Arizona. And we live just about 40 minutes away!The current community is a very vibrant one, very involved in bringing art and culture into the Maricopa County. But...

  • Excellent Breakfast

    We stumbled upon this place when we were staying at the nearby Fort McDowell Casino and resort. I goggled breakfast and picked this place.Flapjacks is located in a strip center and cannot be seen from the road. Don't give up, it actually exhausts.The specialty of Flapjacks are oven-baked pancakes and they do not disappoint. These are a German style...

  • Yummy Gelato, many flavors!

    So after playing at the waterpark (May 31, 2009) at 100 degree weather, we were ready for ice cream! We tried the La Scala and we were not disappointed. My five year old son had 2 $0.99 cones of vanilla, and my daughter had a $2.99 small cup of cannila (the yellow cup). Cups progressively increase insight by approx dollar increments.Of course, do...

  • Delightful Breakfast!

    This little French restaurant has a perfect location. We loved the sunshine on the porch in the late morning. If you eat a bit much, or just feel like a stroll, cross Saguaro and walk around the fountain. Be sure to hit it on the hour when it erupts! I loved the Eggs Florentine with smoked salmon. Their waffles and crepes are good as well. The...

  • Yummy food with patio view of fountain!

    This is an amazing restaurant we found within the area of the Fountain Park, having a great patio with a view of the tall fountain that goes off every hour to a great height over 500 feet!The service was great - our waitress Krista was very attentive and gave everything we needed. The twins enjoyed the chicken wings and I had the hummus and the...

  • Am I in Italy?

    This is a small gelateria in a larger complex near the fountain, so this is a great place to stop after lunch at any of the restaurants or after shopping. The owner was wonderful, very kind and helpful. To work off the gelato, take a stroll around the fountain on the paved path, or take the kids out to the playground. The Almond Joy was amazing. I...

  • 37 tvs can't be wrong...

    This is an amazing place to sit around sunset and watch the game. The staff were friendly and the 37 tvs project a number of sporting events. There's also a porch that catches the sun in the afternoon. Good margheritas, but beer seems to be the drink of choice. The pizzas seemed popular - the chicken bbq was great!

  • Beautiful Views

    This coffee shop's greatest feature is location. The atmosphere is nice as well - wireless and couches. It's a great place to read the morning paper - or on of the books from the small "library" here. I found the coffee slightly more expensive than I was expecting, but decided that's generally true of small restaurants in Arizona.When you're done,...

  • French Bakery

    Really nice options here! We tried a few different things for a brunch/lunch and enjoyed each of them. The prices seemed very reasonable and there were quite a few selections even late in the morning. I've read reviews that say the locals (at least seasonal locals) really enjoy it. We enjoyed the fougasse with brie and tomatoes. There was also a...

  • Great Breakfast Option

    This is just a little bagel shop in yet another Arizona strip mall, but don't let that scare you away. This is a great breakfast/lunch place with very reasonable prices and a great menu. There are many varieties of bagels and quite a few cream cheeses (although the portion spread on a toasted bagel is huge - be ready to scrape). But, there are also...
