We will be in Scottsdale for the first time for my boyfriend's birthday on April 24. We get in early and will be staying at the Hyatt Place Scottsdale/Old Town. We already booked the car rental. Suggestions on our itinerary:
Saturday, April 24
walk around Old Town, maybe lunch at Frank & Lupe's
- any suggestions for good mexican restaurant?
Considering sunset hot air balloon ride as a surprise for my boyfriend's bday. How is Rainbow Ryders Inc.? And then maybe a nice place for dinner ...nothing too expensive since the balloon ride is probably going to cost $180/person. Do you think Roaring Fork would be a fun/good place to go for bday dinner?
Sunday, April 25
Hike? Camelback, Sonoran Preserve Park, Pinnacle Peak Park Trail or McDowell Mtn Ranch? We are not avid hikers so probably nothing too difficult of a hike.
Is Sunday going to be very busy ...should we start early morning?
Monday, April 26
drive to Sedona (2 hrs away)
Oak Creek Canyon
Chapel of the Holy Cross
Tuesday, April 27
no plans yet...
one important question... i read somewhere that a GPS doesn't work well in Scottsdale ...is that true??
your suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thank you!Edited: 20 March 2010, 05:37
