Phoenix & Surrounding Area, AZ

  Sun Devil Stadium
This is Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe where ASU is located.  Before the new stadium was built, the Arizona Cardinals played here.

The Tempe area has lots of cool bars including Dierks Bentley's Whiskey Row where the whiskey girls pour alcohol down the throats of customers.

Phoenix is home to the Cactus League of the MLB Spring Training program that features most of the MLB teams.  The Phoenix area has Cactus League baseball parks throughout the area.  My Rangers play here in Surprise, AZ.

This is the Maryvale Baseball Facility where the Milwaukee Brewers play during Spring Training for their home games.  They feature my favorite beer, Summer Shandy on top here too!

Phoenix has lots of nice resorts!  The Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak has a water park onsite also!

I recommend a visit to the Wrigley Mansion for lunch or dinner at one of their two fine dining establishments.  This old mansion of the Wrigley family is now a private club overlooking the Phoenix valley.

Phoenix has Bikini Beans all over.  Since it gets so hot, the HOT baristas wear bikinis to stay cool as they make great beverages.  LOL.

This is an old mission in Scottsdale.

    Tempe, Arizona is an amazing place.  The girls out there are out of this world.  I went out there during my senior year of college for the first time.  The area around Arizona State University (ASU) is really busy, and there are lots of cool places to party.  I stayed in Scottsdale, Arizona at the Sunspree Resort, and then my fraternity brother picked me up and showed me around Phoenix area.  He moved there after college.  I also saw Camelback Mountain.  Since then, I have been back to the Phoenix area many times including a two week training trip for our work and Spring Training for baseball also.  Moreover, I have connected through Phoenix's Sky Harbor Airport a lot since US Air was based out of there before they merged with American Airlines.  Phoenix has some great places to eat also including House of Tricks in Tempe, La Pinata, Roka Akor, Mastro's City Hall, and Oregano's Pizza.
