Things to do in the Phoenix Area During the Summer
Looking for some indoors activities during the summer months in Phoenix? The Arizona Museum of Natural History might be a fun one to check out. It's located in Mesa Arizona, near the Downtown section of Mesa. From the outside it doesn't look like it will be much, but looks are deceiving. This museum has multiple levels and you can really spend some time in there.
Do you know what the Five C's in Arizona area? You can learn all about them at the museum. Hint, one of the C's is copper.
Pictured to the left, a lookalike tunnel for mining copper.
If you are planning a trip here it is recommended that you buy your tickets online in advance to secure your spot.
The dinosaurs were definitely my favorite part of the museum. & in the above video check out the flash flood. Look for the schedule while you're there to make sure you catch it. Much of the museum is focused on the South West. Pretty neat!

All of McCormick Ranch is in 85258, but not all of 85258 is McCormick Ranch
Considering a move to South Scottsdale?
South Scottsdale includes zip codes 85251 and 85257. It's a gorgeous area with a mix of single family homes and condos/townhomes. 85251 includes the Old Town Scottsdale area, also known as Downtown. 85251 also includes a small portion of Arcadia Proper. 85257 is just South of 85251 and does not exactly follow Thomas Rd, but much of the zip code change is on or near Thomas Rd. Just South of 85257 is where Tempe begins. Much of these two areas are very walkable to restaurants, live music venues and more. And if not walkable a good deal of areas are served by Scottsdale's free trolley system. For the trolley routes, go here: https://www.scottsdaleaz.gov/trolley
We are living in some really different times right now. Most of us are on some form of stay at home orders from our local governments and even if we are deemed essential employees, we can't go out and do things for fun right now.
There are quite a few places who have opened up virtual tours, and I'm excited to compile a list of my favorites for you, including a few local places!
Thanks for stopping by!
