SUN, SAND, AND SERIOUS EATS IN SCOTTSDALE

A beautiful and luxurious desert oasis, Scottsdale is brimming with great restaurants, five star hotels, and adventurous activities. While weekend trips to Sedona, the Grand Canyon, and Tucson can be easily arranged, you won’t find the need to leave this Southwestern splendor. Hot days and cool evenings provide the perfect climate to lounge by the pool when the sun’s out, and bar hop in downtown when day reaches night. With more than 330 days of sunshine a year, it’s a bright idea to schedule a trip to this exclusive pocket of Arizona.

Day 1 (Saturday):

We arrived late at night into the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport on a JetBlue flight from Boston. We picked up our rental car from EZ Rent-a-Car, where we were given a free upgrade from a Toyota Camry to a Toyota Rav4. The price for the rental was $235 for 9 full days. We drove to the Sheraton PHX Tempe hotel, where we stayed for free, redeeming 3,000 SPG points.

Day 2 (Sunday):

After working out in the fitness center and getting ready, we checked out of the Sheraton and drove to St. Francis in Phoenix for Sunday brunch. St. Francis is a modern, industrial open-air restaurant that has great food and a live jazz band. We ordered the farmer's breakfast, spinach scramble, and crispy, rosemary potatoes.
