About Me
My name is Jill , and I am a skin care therapist. I love living in Scottsdale, Arizona because it's a great melting pot of so many people that it's not unusual to meet individuals from all over the US. I meet a lot of Midwest transplants (such as myself) and more/less
You have to go to
The one must see site in my city would be Taliesin West. Frank Lloyd Wrights architect school and winter home. The tours are educational and entertaining and are typically given by the students. Great way to spend an afternoon!
Here's one fun activity you can do
A hike up Camelback Mountain early enough to see the sunrise is really worth it. On a scale of difficulty, it's probably 7 or 8 out of 10 for someone that's in average and healthy shape. Bring plenty of water, cell phone and sunscreen!
Don't forget to check out one of my favorite places
I love going to Scottsdale is Goodwill. Yes, that sounds strange, I know, but you can't believe what you can find. I've walked away with real gold earrings for a dollar and a like-new Armani purse for $6.99.
Enjoy a meal at my favorite restaurant
Mission in Old Town is a great place for real southwest food, with an emphasis on great margaritas. Their white bean appetizer is amazing. It's a cool, upscale rustic (that sounds weird), the waiters are great and bartenders even greater!
Here's a doable bucket list for you to do in one day
1. Enjoy walking around Old Town Scottsdale.
2. Get a coffee and fresh pastry at Village Roastery (address: on the corner of Hayden and Via de Ventura Rds).
3. Go peruse Goodwill on your own personal treasure hunt.
4. Take a tour of Taliesen West and learn something about one of the most talented and strange architects that ever lived
5. See some local/national talent at Stand Up Scottsdale for some highly entertaining and cheap comedy. They're open every night and you are guaranteed to laugh out loud at some point during the evening. Yes, guaranteed.
My extra insider tip for you is
Scottsdale has a lot of is tourists. Something to do is pick a spot that's heavily traveled by foot like the Waterfront or anywhere near Old Town or Scottsdale Fashion Square and do some serious people watching. Sounds a little strange but its very interesting to see who and what passes you by. Never dull to be in the thick of it. Enjoy the parade.
