I will be flying in on Thursday, and since I've never been to Phoenix, I'm more interested in looking around the area (so to speak).
I plan to wander around Scottsdale (old downtown area apparently has Thursday night events/art galleries open late/ perhaps some entertainment) so after I get settled into the hotel Thursday afternoon I plan to get to Scottsdale somehow (won't have a car )to wander around a bit( I really enjoy exploring a new area by walking around it) and then have an early dinner there (remember I will be on Chicago time so when it's 6pm in Phoenix, it's 8pm in Chicago) before heading back to the hotel. So, if anyone plans to be there on Thursday and wants to join me, just let me know. But, I won't be doing this late into the evening (since I will have had a very early morning getting out of Chicago)., I will likely head out from the hotel around 4pm or so (assuming I'm checked into the hotel by then which I think I will be.)
Hoping to hear from Lina soon about hotel and prices .
