It’s the second day in Phoenix, and very, very warm! Right now, approximately 5:30 pm, it’s nearly 100 degrees outside! I love it! It was sure good to sleep in this morning, something I’m not able to do very often. It felt wonderful to not get up and feel rushed to get started on a project or be somewhere! I just kicked back and relaxed.
Once I had “relaxed” over breakfast, it was time to get moving and exploring the nearby attractions. The hotel is very close, walkable in fact, to the Biltmore Fashion Park. This shopping and restaurant district is home to many upscale businesses. Several finds on clearance racks at Macy’s was the productive part of the morning, followed by coffee at Starbucks!
A trek to the Town & Country Plaza, directly across the street from my hotel, offered a host of stores and finds! I found several clearance-type stores, where merchandise gets a “last chance” for sale. I came away with nothing, but there’s still a couple days left! Incredible bargins on name brand items! It was great to see “Trader Joes” so close, which meant a shopping trip for food items in my hotel. Trader Joes has to be one of the best retailers in the country!
Tomorrow I’m planning to see the Heard Museum, and the Phoenix Art Museum. The hotel has a free shuttle within a five mile radius, so I plan to take advantage of the service!
More later on “Phoenix, Day 3”!
