What do you like to do in Greater Phoenix on the weekends? 
Living downtown (Roosevelt Row), we are close to everything! Phoenix has really become a walkable city (8 months out the year) – our Saturday morning routine is walking to coffee at one of our local shops and then Phoenix Public Market for their great Farmers Market. We love how vibrant downtown has become.

What’s your go-to staycation spot and why? 
We really love to explore as many properties as we can, especially in the summer. This past summer we had a great stay at the Biltmore. Prior to moving downtown, we were frequent year-round visitors of the Found:RE. If you love art and boutique hotels, they are great place to spend a couple of days!

What’s your favorite restaurant and why?  
Mora Italian is top of the list. It holds a special place in my heart because my dad loved that restaurant so much. They do a great job of being consistent and creative with their food, and the service is outstanding!

What do you like about our winters and why? 
The weather is amazing, and it seems like you can always find something fun to do. From October to May you won’t find a weekend that doesn’t have some festival or event happening. Greater Phoenix has done so much to invest in arts & culture and activities.

What do you love most about living in Greater Phoenix?  
Everything is easily accessible! You can usually get anywhere you want to within 30 minutes.
