Day Thirteen: Home away

We always wanted to live in the Phoenix area. I almost had to move here about 8 years ago and I was hooked on that idea every since. Obviously, we stayed in VA but that doesn’t mean we couldn’t take a minute to look around at Phoenix to see what we’ve been missing.


We grabbed an early hotel and searched some open house listings. We wanted to get “local” in this city and really see what it would be like to live here during the summer. Verdict – perfection. It was 116 degrees in the middle of the day and it felt great. The heat is NOTHING like VA. You can jump in the pool and cool off and the breeze becomes really refreshing!

We stayed in Old Town Scottsdale, which is way more youthful than I expected it to be and the schools systems around here actually seem pretty well rated!

We found some dinner at Tortilla Factory in old town before heading back to the hotel for the night.


Side note – staying in Scottsdale is surprisingly affordable. Hotels under $100/night are easy to find and they all seem clean and have all the amenities.
