  • 1. Willow Stream Spa at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess
    Willow Stream Spa at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, Scottsdale

    Wonderful spa at the Fairmont Princess - the facility is beautiful and serene - the pool is great, very private - all in all a relaxing place to spend your morning...or even the whole day.

  • 2. Postino Winebar
    Postino Winebar, Phoenix

    Great restaurant for wine ($5/glass for all wine before 4pm) and bruschette and salads. A locals favorite for lunch and close to downtown.

  • 3. Kierland Commons
    Kierland Commons, Scottsdale

    Great shopping, great location (central scottsdale), all outdoors, so you can walk around, enjoy the wonderful weather - grab a coffee or some ice cream - just enjoy the day.

  • 4. North
    North Italia, Scottsdale

    This is one of many (and I mean many) dinner options in Scottsdale / Phoenix. I picked this one out because it is located in Kierland - so if you leave the spa late - or want to shop, have some dinner, and then shop some more - North is your best choice. They have also opened up North Wine Bar right next door which is similiar to Postino's (see above) but is located in Scottsdale...and therefore a bit pricier.

    Cuisine is Italian with lots of fresh ingredients - yum.

  • 5. Pizzeria Bianco
    Pizzeria Bianco, Phoenix

    Bianco's is a Phoenix fav all around - simple menu (pizza, anti pasta, brushetta, salads). It is located in a historic building (read small) and the wait can be seemingly ridiculous. Go expecting a 2-hour wait, but spend your time next door at the wine bar where you can get limited appetizers and a bottle or two of wine - it is all part of the Bianco experience!

  • 6. Chelsea's Kitchen
    Chelsea's Kitchen, Phoenix

    Just all around yummy food - located in the biltmore part of town - actually, pretty close to Postino's - so you may want to shop at the Biltmore instead of Kierland....but wonderful food - another local hot spot.
