Where can we order a Christmas dinner for takeout while we are there at christmas?
We will be coming to Phoenix for the Pro Bowl from Texas.
Yes, we know it is in Glendale, however, having NEVER BEEN to any part of Arizona to vacation, I am needing to know:
What is the best area of Phoenix to stay in… Downtown Phoenix, or Midtown area or …
We are looking to book hotels and would like to be able to do a bit of walking to dinner and such too!..

Hi fellow travelers,
I've had recurring thoughts about the Canyon de Chelly, Antelope Canyon, Grand Canyon, Zion/Bryce NP areas and think a nice road trip is in my near future. I'm from Colorado and have traveled extensively in the west, but never really explored these regions. Would anyone please share ideas for incorporating these area/regions in a great 2-3 week road trip for the end of October-November timeframe? Links, websites, leads greatly appreciated.
I have a tent (but camping solo as a woman?) but also can stay in cheap clean hotels/B&Bs/homestays, etc. I just want a meaningful (not totally touristy) experience. Are there gifts that I might bring to the Navajo Nation that are needed? Books, clothes, ideas?
I teach English and writing and do some artwork - so sharing my skills might be a good volunteer experience to offer the tribe, too. I've volunteered worldwide through HelpX.net and find that when I travel I enjoy most meeting locals, sharing my skills and talents, having a more intense and personal experience. I speak some Spanish, love taking great photos, enjoying regional cultural events/festivals and telling/hearing good stories.
I'd be driving from northern CA, have family in Las Vegas and Phoenix/Tucson but may not make it that far south.
Thanks for any time, thought and effort offered by you, my fellow world travelers!
I am planning to drive with 3 friends to Grand Canyon from Las Vegas and stay 2 night there then dirve back to LA. Any advice and suggestion on hotel to stay and routes to follow will be most appreciated.
Can anyone suggest a good day tour of south ridge
Is there anything fun to do at night in sierra vista
We will travel from November 20th till November 30th to the southern part of Arizona. Anyone can tell what we need to see. We have been all above Phoenix. We hope to find more warmth in the south of Arizona. We like nature and the city as well.
Thanks in Advance,
Hi, we're looking at resorts in Scottsdale in August for family of 2 seniors, 2 adults, 2 kids (11 & 8). We are visiting from the UK and not driving. We need nice pools/ something for the kids, with dining options nearby and shopping a quick cab ride away. We plan to take tours to Tombstone, Apache Trail, Grand Canyon. Is this possible or am I expecting too much ? We have previously done Orlando and Anaheim/LA without a car. Thank you in advance
Hi there :-)
I am looking for some suggestions for an upcoming trip. My friend and I will meet in Phoenix on Sept 8, drive to Yuma and spend the night. We will be sailing during the day on the 9th-11th, docking at night on Shelter Island. The 12th we will start making our way back to Phoenix--my flight is on the 14th (like 6 or 7 pm).
I am interested in diner recommendations, can't miss things/places. quirky, random, off the beaten path suggestions of things to see or do in the evenings after sailing or the 12-13th and even part of the 14th (I have an early evening flight). In Az, the radius would be 50-mile radius of Yuma or an 1.5 hour radius of Phoenix. We are considering the Apache Tr scenic by-way to Roosevelt Lake, Castle Dunes, Territorial Prison, Mystery Castle Dome Mines, Jacumba Hot Springs. We have a National Parks Access pass.
Can anyone tell me more details this (does it run all year round, how can I find it, what time does it run from)? It looks like it's a weekly event that happens in Scottsdale. I've seen some review say it's on Fifth Avenue, and another review said the Marshall Way Arts District (which could all be the same thing, but I don't know any better).
We will be travelling to PHX from Nov. 13-17, and if we can take part in this, it sounds like fun.
Thanks in advance!
Need suggestions for best itinerary for 5 days. Staying about an hour away at a B and B. Thanks
If flying do you fly into Phoenix and then get your hire car there?

My family and I are traveling from NY to the Grand Canyon in an RV this summer. We would like to take a trip to see the Hoover Dam while we are there. Is it possible to rent a car for the day or overnight to do this?
We will be reaching Phoenix at around 7:30, renting a car and then driving to Phoenix at night.
Is it safe to do so? Or is it more advisable to spend the night at Phoenix and leave early morning.
Hi there, we're from overseas, just wanna ask if its worth driving through the mountain route to seattle from grand canyon via salt lake city or idaho/boise pathway. Not sure if there is gonna be heavy snow, would anyone recommend this route. Which route is the safest during travelling from grand canyon to seattle? besides going to back to the coastal route on the west.
Are there any Native American festivals in or near Flagstaff this coming weekend? July 19-20?
My daughter wants to stay at the Grand Canyon ranch for a night at the west rim. Has anyone been before.
We have been to the the south rim before so we know the west rim isn't actually the n.p. but would quite like to see the sky walk.
I am visiting the Grand Canyon in a few weeks. My hotel is in Tusayan and I am planning to go by bus to the GC visitor center. According to the park's homepage, a valid park pass must already be presented when entering the bus. The homepage (nps.gov/grca/planyourvisit/f...) further says that passes are sold in several businesses in Tusayan, e.g. the IMAX theater.
However, if I got it correctly, then only Vehicle passes are sold in Tusayan but no individual permits. Thus I was wondering where I can get such a pass. The only option I see currently is to walk from Tusayan to the park entrance, buy the ticket, walk back to Tusayan and enter the bus. But this is certainly not how it's intended. I could not find the possibility for online purchases either.
Thanks in advance for any advices.
Are there art galleries in Jerome and if so, what address?
Is it safe or any risk to pay attention?
Thank you in advance.

I want to book a sunset tour to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon on Thursday 3 July. Scenic Tours has a tour that leaves Las Vegas at 12.30 pm. Can I assume we'd see the sunset if we took this tour?
Driving from Peoria, AZ to Santa Cruz, CA on Monday. What would be the best way to drive there? Not looking to stop along the way, just want to get there.
We want to visit next w/end (Fri.-Mon.) with the family, 2 adults, 2 boys (13, 15). Any recommendations?
We (4 of us) will be staying in Williams for 3 nights in August via Amtrak ex Chicago. Have booked the Grand Canyon railway and we don't have other transport . Our problem seems to be getting transport from Williams to Flagstaff to take our flight out at midday. The shuttle service times are unsuitable . Are taxis available and if so could you advise the approximate cost for 4 people with luggage. Thanks so much
just in PHX for business and thought I'd take a quick drive up to flagstaff, what's the must see that fits a day trip back and forth?
