Had so much fun going on this trip with my mom 🥰
The Saguaro Scottsdale: My mom and I stayed here and it was so cute. If you’re looking for a spot that is very instagramable than this is the place for you. You may remember I also stayed at The Saguaro in Palm Springs. (Read all about the Palm Springs location here) The location of The Saguaro Scottsdale is the best. It is right in Old Town Scottsdale so there is a TON of restaurants and shops that you can walk to. They also have golf carts that will take you places as well! The golf cart took us to the mall one day and it was so awesome!

The Westin Kierland: My mom swears by this hotel when she goes to Scottsdale. We obviously didn’t stay there this time, but I definitely want to the next time we go to AZ. Not only does it look beautiful, but they also have a lazy river 😜 Perfect for getting some sun and staying cool in the AZ heat. I will say this hotel is a little further away from everything but if you have a rental car it would be good.
Blanco Tacos: This is one of my favorite spots to go when in Scottsdale. It is so good and I have been dreaming about their tacos since the last time Mike and I were in AZ.
The Sugar Bowl: I had really high hopes for this ice cream spot. I read so many things about how great it was. It was definitely a cute spot and I loved all the pink and the old school vibe it had. My mom and I shared an ice cream sundae and it was just OK. We were bummed too that they were sold out of the mint chip ice cream (our fave). Overall not the best experience but maybe it would be better if we went back a different time.
Diego Pops: This is another taco spot and it’s so cute inside. We didn’t end up having time to go here but it’s somewhere I would definitely go when we come back. They also have snow cone margaritas which sounds so good!
Berdena’s: This place is SO pretty inside. Light and bright and just feels homey. ☺️ They serve coffee, pastries and some other breakfast items and they are known for having the best avocado toast!
The Montauk: This is another very instagrammable spot. So pretty inside and makes you feel like you are somewhere other than Arizona. They have a cool outdoor area that is perfect for grabbing a drink with friends. They serve brunch, lunch, and dinner. It is v similar to Hampton Social in its menu items and decor.
Old Town Scottsdale: So many cute shops and restaurants. It has definitely been built up since the last time I was in AZ and there is a ton to do in this area now. Perfect for shopping for some turquoise jewelry or grabbing a bite to eat.
Camelback Mountain: Mike and I climbed Camelback the last time we were in AZ and it was no joke. It is definitely a workout but I am so glad we did it. Also when we climbed Camelback, we had brought our Camelback water bottles (of course) and Mike had dropped his and it almost fell down the mountain. Mike went after it and I was nervous he was gonna fall down with it. 🙈 So scary.
Roosevelt Row Arts District: This area reminds me of Wynwood Walls in Miami. (Read more about Wynwood Walls here) There are tons of murals and artwork all around. Definitely a cool spot to hang out for the day and take some pics.
