Two Days in the Valley



Description:

Only have two days to spend in Phoenix? The Valley of the Sun is famous for its suburban sprawl, which can make it difficult for visitors to navigate the city and uncover some of its highlights. Here are the places the locals go when they want to experience the best of their city.

Day 1 - Phoenix


If you only have two days in town, start by fueling up at one of Phoenix's favorite breakfast joints, Matt's Big Breakfast. Get a sweeping view of the valley from atop Piestewa Peak (worth the hike), then reward yourself with an early dinner at Pizzeria Bianco. Relax after a long day of sight-seeing on the rooftop deck and lounge at the Clarendon, where you can take in one of those famous Arizona sunsets.

Day 2 - Phoenix


Start your second day in Phoenix by having breakfast or brunch under the shade of the pecan groves at The Farm at South Mountain. See some amazing Native American art at the Heard Museum, then head north to experience the Sonoran Desert at the Desert Botanical Garden. You can't leave town without enjoying some authentic Mexican food. You'll find fresh, creative Mexican dishes at the Barrio Cafe.
