24 Hours in Phoenix

With only 24 hours to see one of the largest and most ecliptic city scenes around, an early start is a must. Kick-off the day with a breakfast ‘Ncounter’ of the freshest variety. Located in the heart of Tempe on the legendary Mill Ave., Ncounter offers an urban vibe with options for every palette. Next use up some of that newly found energy to climb one of The Valley’s most historic natural landmarks – Camelback Mountain. The two summit trails are not for the faint of heart, but once atop the gorgeous red sandstone cliffs, the views are undeniable.  

After the hike, make a stop at the Musical Instrument Museum and experience the history of musical instruments from nearly every country in the world. This cultural adventure will leave you agreeing that MIM is truly “the most amazing place you will ever hear.” Enjoy a different cultural tune and visit the living memorial of the great American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West. Taliesin West today houses The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, The Frank Lloyd Wright Memorial Foundation, and The Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. With plenty of daylight left, head on over to the Heard Museum and learn about the arts, heritage and way of life of the Indigenous peoples of the Americas. If science is of interest, the Arizona Science Center is a one-stop-shop for excitement regardless of age.  If children make up your travel entourage - The Children’s Museum of Phoenix is a must. 

With lunchtime calling, head to the Scottsdale Waterfront where restaurant variety can be described as an understatement. After refueling, enjoy the finest shopping in town at Scottsdale Fashion Square.

If you land in Phoenix during the beautiful spring months, catch a classic spring training game as 15 big league teams call Arizona home. If spectating isn’t enough, book a tee time and swing it at any one of our 250 courses across The Valley. 

Take a load off after the busy day, enjoy a prickly pear margarita and take in a beautiful Sonoran Desert sunset. Secure dinner reservations at Kai and then hit the town for an unforgettable night of fun, laughter and spirits in Old Town Scottsdale

Until next time…thanks for visiting!

Phoenix in The Hot Seat

We asked members of our Phoenix office to sound off on food, TV and music and more. Here’s what they had to say:

Favorite Watering Hole

The default location is Culinary Dropout, which is right below our office, Postino and anywhere you can get a good, cold beer!

Office Anthem

The theme song from "The A-Team"

Why do you live in your city?

You can’t beat Phoenix in March. You might get some arguments in July. But haven’t you heard? It’s a DRY heat!

Favorite In-Office Activity

We’ve been known to pull a few pranks on occasion.

What do you love most about your city?

The people. Nowhere will you find our mix of retirees, college students, native Arizonans, tourists, Midwest and East Coast transplants.

What are the first three things people should see when the visit/move to your city?

The Musical Instrument Museum (A client!), sunset over the desert and a spring training baseball game in the sunshine.
