Our last two days in Arizona were packed with fun activities and some sightseeing. By this time, we had gotten our fill of pool time and were both excited to get out and explore. We spent the day with the Visit Mesa team and got to explore a ton of fun spots throughout Mesa, Arizona!
We started out with an early morning hike at Usery Mountain Regional Park, which was something I had been looking forward to. I love hiking and Trevor and I have started doing it more and more. Since I was pretty pregnant, I was a little worried about the trail but it was totally doable but still challenging. It was nice to spend some quite alone time together and really soak everything in. We sadly didn’t make it all the way to the top to see the Wind Caves since it became pretty steep and narrow and I was a little timid.
After finishing our hike, we were excited to get out of the sun a bit and eat! We headed to Queen Creek Olive Mill for the prettiest outdoor break filled with lemonade, some delicious appetizers and a tour of the mill. The owner is a strong proponent of natural beauty and I loved exploring the products they offered and trying some the oils!
From there, we headed to Agritopia which is unlike anything else I’ve ever seen. It’s an organic farm that services the restaurant on site, Joe’s Farm Grill that has been on Diners, Drive-In’s and Dives and also encompasses a coffee shop, and a craftsman community. You can actually walk through Barnone and watch the craftsmen create their products and shop some.
After a long day of exploring, we were happy to arrive at the gorgeous Scott Resort and Spa and check into our room. We sat out on our patio and enjoy some lemonade (why don’t I drink it anymore?! It’s so good!) and relaxed before dinner at The Scott Grill. I know I talked about this dinner before, but it was really something amazing. If you have the chance to stop in, I totally suggest it!
The scenery and hike were breathtaking!
Baby T and I needed lots of breaks!
The delicious olive oil was just the beginning
For our last day we decided to head into downtown Phoenix to explore a little bit! We started out having breakfast at the Phoenix Public Market Café on their patio. It’s where the local farmer’s market is held each weekend and it was nice to have some fresh food. If you happen to stop in, definitely get the egg sandwich! After that we walked around the downtown area, explored all the art popping up and some of the little record shops and stores.
We were pretty wiped out from the day before so we headed back to The Scott to cool off and relax before our last dinner at The Henry. I had so many people tell me to stop in here while we were in town and it definitely didn’t disappoint .The only thing I was sad about was that we weren’t able to make it back fro brunch, which looked amazing. Definitely try the short rib potstickers and the mushroom pasta!
Happy Hour at The Scott, that prickly pear was delicious!
The roasted artichoke appetizer at The Scott Grill blew us away!
Sightseeing around downtown Phoenix
The homemade pop tart stole the show
Much to our sadness we packed up and headed home that next morning but couldn’t have had a better stay! I totally recommend it for a vacation and especially a babymoon. It was the perfect weather, atmosphere and amount of activities for a mommy to be. If you have any questions at all, feel free to reach out!
A huge thank you to Visit Phoenix for sponsoring our trip and being the most gracious hosts. We enjoyed every minute of it and can’t recommend the area more!
