Visiting Phoenix

Hi Guys,

I will be visiting Phoenix in early February to watch my sister in a college softball tournament. It is going to be a nice change in scenery and not to mention a nice temperature change

Anyway, do you guys from Phoenix or that area have any suggestions on good attractions/things to see/do in and around Phoenix. I will have a rental car, so I will be able to drive to see some stuff.

We are going to a Phoenix Suns game but other than that have no specific plans on what to do or see while we aren't watching the softball tourney.

Just thought some of you guys from that area would have some good suggestions

Thanks Guys

I'm not in Phoenix, but might I recommend the South Rim/Grand Canyon?

ya. i was thinking of that. but i have been told that it is a 3-3.5 hour drive one-way to the Grand Canyon. Thats a little far for a day trip for me...although I would really love to see it.

Sedona isnt to far north...that is pretty cool.

Since you are most likely a car guy the Pavilions on Saturday nights is really cool. Lots of nice cars...its like a weekly car show. Its at Indian Bend and the 101.
Too bad you wont be here the end of January because the Barrett Jackson auto auction is here...thats really cool...I work right next to there yay

Arrive Tues. Leave on Sunday.

We are going to the Suns vs Portland basketball game on Wednesday. Wanted to see something different, we get enough hockey up here

Also going to drive up to the Grand Canyon and visit some of the parks inside Phoenix.

Hope to see some Camaros on the road! If I see any I'm definitely giving them the thumbs-up or the

Keep that rain away for me

We are meeting there between 8:30am and 9am. Hoping to be leaving at 9am.
We always meet in the south west corner main parking lot for the mall.
It is easiest to find us by going in the entrance on Baseline rd (1600 W Baseline Rd, Tempe, AZ 85282). Then make a left, when you get to the T with the main loop (Arizona Mills Circle). We will be parked on your right as you drive by.
Here is a map: We will be parked where the "A" is.

Well i just got back to Edmonton. Back to the snow and ice :(

Had a great time down in Phoenix and wish I didn't have to leave. The weather was amazing and we had a great time at the Zoo, South Mountain, Grand Canyon, Old Town Scottsdale etc. A great city. I wish I could live somewhere with 77 degree days in February

Anyways, thanks for the tips on where to visit and stuff. And I did catch my eye on a few 5th gens while there
