What’s your favorite local restaurant?


What’s something that has surprised you about Arizona?

How quick you can get to so many different things and places. There is a ton of restaurants, hiking, skiing or just being outside in Flagstaff or Sedona, close to the border and other surrounding states. NY is very big. It can take eight hours to get across the state.

Please include anything else you would like to add:

Arizona has a lot more to offer than I originally thought. I am still getting used to the slower paced and more laid back style than the East Coast. I love the weather and what we have experienced in our few years here.
