You guys have been asking and emailing about what to do in Phoenix & Scottsdale, so today I am excited to partner with Uber share a quick travel guide to my city that includes a few of my favorite spots broken down by three different areas: downtown Phoenix, old town Scottsdale and Central Phoenix.
If you fly in early, I recommend you grab a quick Uber to downtown Phoenix. If you live under a rock and don't know what Uber is, it's a convenient and inexpensive car service that you can order with a simple tap of your phone using their app.
So hop in your Uber and head to Matt's Big Breakfast for some fluffy pancakes or eggs benedict. It's a popular little breakfast nook that has garnered a big, hungry Phoenix following... and for good reason!
A few steps away is Futuro Coffee at Palabra Collective. It too has acquired a cult-like following. With its menu all in Spanish to embrace the Southwest. It's part salon part art house part coffee, and all awesome. Watch old-school Batman and Robin projected on the walls while sipping their yummy coffee creations.
Before you leave downtown, grab a yummy snack at Rollover Donuts. Their donuts are made with brioche dough and they have fun flavors like Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Maple Glaze + Candied Bacon, Orange Glaze + Chopped Pistachios and Spicy Thai Coconut.
Once you've had your fill, grab your next uber and head to Old Town Scottsdale.
Old Town Scottsdale
If you haven't gotten your coffee and donuts fill, you can head to one of my favorite stops, ReGroup Coffee & Bicycles to enjoy a cup and rent a bike. It's a unique shop that not only shares their gift for coffee, but sells, fixes and even rents out bicycles. I love their darling beach cruisers - they are perfectly situated in Old Town Scottsdale to rent a bike and cruise around and explore with your coffee.
From there, you can head to lunch at The Montauk or Diego Pops (both are so delicious), and then pop over to Teaspressa + Ruze Cake House for some yummy tea that is prepared like coffee and really good cookies and macarons. It also happens to be super photogenic (I also posted about Teaspressa here).
Phoenix General is a rad shop carrying a collection of home and fashion goods that are inspired by our modern, desert city. It's one of my favorite stops for cool threads for both guys and girls, and the owners are awesome guys too!
Vida Moulin evokes a bohemian beach fashion vibe for women. They carry some of my favorite brands like J.O.A, Tularosa and For Love and Lemons. Plus they have a cute little 'succulent bar' and unique darling little decor trinkets.
Last on my list is Hub Clothing. They carry an awesome variety of men's and women's clothing and apothecary - from AESOP to Frame Denim.
Afterwards, you have to stop in Churn for some super delish ice cream! Get a scoop, a sundae or a float to top off your belly!
Whatever you decide to do in Phoenix, Uber is the best way to get around! It's a safer and smarter way to travel from point A to B and the places you need or want to be. I also prefer to ride in an Uber when visiting a new city because I love picking a locals brain about what to do and things to see in their city. Like when we visited Seattle, it was our Uber driver who recommended we visit Kerry Park for a great view of the city. Uber helped us seek out new parts of the city that we wouldn't have seen before, and I love that an app can provide cool opportunities like that.
Anyway, I hope you guys enjoyed today's post - and I hope you consider visiting and ubering your way around our beautiful city.
