A Quick Three Days In Phoenix

posted by Michelle Buckles -

No such thing as bad press (Press Coffee that is) 🌵 . . s/o to @nationalcarrental for hooking it up with this convertible...clearly this photo shoot was completely necessary. Luckily, no one else drove down this road during the making of these photos 🙃 . . . #PHX #Phoenix #Desert #Mountains #Hiking #Arizona #AZ #Cactus #Cacti #Convertible #Travel #Adventure #Summer #Wanderlust #DidItForTheGram #PressCoffee #🌵 #🌴 📷: @peanutbutterpunk

It's no secret that I love to travel! I had been wanting to check out Dierks Bentley's Whiskey Row in Scottsdale for a while now, so said what the heck.

Booked a quick 3 day weekend in Phoenix and in the middle of the summer...you can sure get a good rate at a top of the line resort. Because, most people don't go to Phoenix in the middle of July lol


My favorite thing in the whole world is a good acai bowl, and they aren't easy to find!!

Well, if you're ever in Scottsdale and need an amazing smoothie bowl...YOU HAVE TO VISIT WOW WOW HAWAIIAN LEMONADE.

I had the COLD BREW bowl and it was infused with COLD BREW COFFEE. Needles to say, it took my acai bowl obsession to a whole new level.

I hope everyone finds the person that gazes at them the way I gaze at every açaí bowl I’ve ever come across 🥥🍍🍓 . . . I’d like to open a franchise of this place immediately 😋 . . #açaì #acaibowls #aloha #acaibowl #smoothiebowl #arizona #scottsdale #AZ #travel

I know a blade of grass could be taller than I am at 5 feet...but I'd never seen so many tall cacti in my whole entire life! WAY taller than I am. 

I know I’m short but, jeez...this cactus is at least 26 feet tall 🌵😂 . . It’s 118 degrees and feels like an oven, but I think I like you, Arizona! 🌵🙌🏻 . . #Arizona #Scottsdale #ParadiseValley #Summer #HotAF #Travel #Saturday #Weekendvibes

National Car Rental hooked my boyfriend and I up with a car rental upgrade. When I said I wanted the convertible I'm pretty sure they thought I was nuts, because it was 118 degrees. 

But, duhhh. I was already envisioning the photos you could take in the middle of the desert with the top down.

Just imagine me dripping sweat trying to get these photos.


Just wanted to share my excitement! Been wanting to visit @dierksbentley’s restaurant for a while now and I’m finally here!! Tip it on back! #WRScottsdale - @ihearmichelle 🙌🏻🥃

Obviously, I had to check out Whiskey Row.

and Hula's Modern Tiki is at the top of my list as well...

Not every occasion calls for a massive Scorpion Bowl. But when it does, Hula's Modern Tiki sure knows how to present one. Who would you share one of these flaming creations with? 🍹 #ExpeditionFoodieAZ⠀ ⠀ ( #📷 @hulasmoderntiki )⠀

Asian Mexican fusion is the bomb at SumoMaya.

AND if you like a good neighborhood dive bar feel....I highly recommend Old Town Tavern in Old Town Scottsdale. And who knew Scottsdale had so many wine tasting rooms?! Su Vino Winery has some of the most unique/delicious wines I've ever tasted. Many are fruit infused and unlike anything I've ever tried before. The Razzle Dazzle sparkling wine: it's to die for!

What are your favorite spots in Phoenix?

It's time to start planning my next adventure. Any recommendations?

Wheels up!
