I visited Phoenix a little while ago and I LOVED everything about it. I love how it’s so different from Toronto. You rarely see any high rise buildings. I love the vegetation and all the cactuses around. And of course, the good old palm trees everywhere! And the weather? It’s HOT! but coming from Toronto…isn’t that what we need?!
Here is all the info from my trip to Phoenix including some places to eat and things to do:
I organized a trip for the 4 of us girls for the month of October. It was easily one of the best trips of my life because the 4 of us were on the same wavelength the whole time and we all wanted to just get out explore and get lost.
Here is how I planned the trip and more pictures from the trip:
Visiting Antelope Canyon was probably one of my favorite adventures I’ve been on. Growing up I always saw pictures of this plan as background pictures on the computer, blame Microsoft for it!
Here is some tips for you if you’re thinking of planning to visit this incredible place.
- There is an upper antelope canyon and a lower. I visited the Lower canyon because that’s where all those beautiful pictures are from with the sunlight beaming down through open slits of the canyon
- In order to visit this beautiful place you need to sign up for the tour. The grounds are part of the Navajo nation, which is the reason why you’re only allowed in with a Navajo native. We booked our tour with Ken’s Tours, for $28/person, and we were very happy with our tour guide.
- The whole tour inside the canyon lasted about an hour/ hour and half.
- Although it maybe too hot out in the desert once you’re in the canyon it’s pretty cool because most of it is shaded.
- There will be some parts where you go have to go up stairs and ladders so make sure you wear proper footwear and have free hands.
- On the same day we visited Antelope canyon we also visited Horseshoe bend since it was only about half hour drive away. Great way to hit 2 bucket lists on one day!
