Comedor Guadalajara – Authentic Mexican Food in Phoenix

Comedor GuadalajaraWhile my niece Alex and I were in Phoenix we wanted some good Mexican food. We jumped on our phone and found a place that the locals go, Comedor Guadalajara.  It states that they are a family owned and operated Mexican food restaurant located in South Central Phoenix, AZ.

OdySea Aquarium, Phoenix – An Oceanic Adventure

My niece Alex and I had an incredible time in the Phoenix area, especially our visit to the OdySea Aquarium in Scottsdale. It is wonderful and full of wonder. 🙂  Neither of us had been there, so I did a little research on their website before we left and found out about their prices, hours, etc. I was excited when I read about all their exhibits.

Phoenix in the Distance – Amazing South Mountain Park

I recently got back from spending a few incredible days in Arizona exploring the Phoenix area with my niece Alex. It was our first trip together, and we had a blast. We had so much fun doing such things as the OdySea Aquarium, and the Open Air Market, that we planned another trip together next year, lol.  Anyway, while in the Phoenix area we were able to visit beautiful South Mountain Park. Apparently it is the largest municipal park in the United States, and is one of the largest urban parks in North America. It has been designated as a Phoenix Point of Pride.  Continue reading Phoenix in the Distance – Amazing South Mountain Park

Breathtaking Red Sandstone Formations in Sedona, AZ

Sedona To say Sedona is beautiful or gorgeous is a huge understatement. It has to be one of the most exquisite places in the southwest. It’s something you have to see for yourself. The locals say there is magic in the handsome red-rocks, and I believe them. I was definitely smitten from the first time I saw them. We got there at night, so we didn’t get to see them until we woke up. What a site to wake up to. I thought I had died and gone to heaven when I opened the room blinds.  We stayed at the Sedona Summit, which was part of our time share we had at the time. It is a quiet resort and everyone was very friendly. Unfortunately we only had two days there.  Continue reading Breathtaking Red Sandstone Formations in Sedona, AZ

Animals Love Road Trips. At Least Our Dogs do.

 I was very happy to see the subject for our post this week – Animals.  We have traveled through a few countries,  but try to do a lot of road trips here in the US, so we can take our two little fur babies with us. Sometimes it is hard trying to find a place to stay where we can have the dogs or places where we can eat with the dogs, but it is all so worth it. We love having them with us and they love going with us.  Continue reading Animals Love Road Trips. At Least Our Dogs do.
