Live like a Local – A Summer Inspiration for Touring Arizona

Ever wonder where the locals are on a hot summer day in Arizona? Well let me tell you! On your next visit to Arizona here is my list of local favorites.IMG_4917

  • Watch the beautiful sunrise and see some of Arizona’s critters on a peaceful hot air balloon ride over the majestic Sonoran Desert Preserve. Afterwards, the crew has traditional champagne and a beautiful breakfast awaiting your landing. With Hot Air Expeditions love is in the details. Even the plates have hot air balloons on them. This is an experience like none other. 

Hot Air Expeditions (480) 502-6999 *Ask for Craig as your Captain!

  • Hike Fossil Creek and go swimming in the gorgeous waterfall. Choose between a 1 or 10 mile hike to the falls. The 10 mile hike is well worth all of the fabulous views!

 10379 Fossil Creek Rd Pine, AZ 85544

  • For a 360 degree view of the city hike Camelback Mountain.

  (morning or evening for cooler temps, bring lots of water!)

  • Visit Roosevelt Row on the first Friday of every month in downtown Phoenix where you’ll find many food trucks line the street. Unique bars, entertainment, and art create a unique, cultural experience with a hipster flare.
