Spring In Phoenix

Desert Botanical Garden
Learn about interesting desert plants. Really well laid out and educational.
La Grande Orange Grocery & Pizzeria
Walk around this grocery store, and then head next door for amazing pizzas and sandwiches. Pick up a slice of cake or a cookie for dessert.
Old Town Scottsdale
Lots to see in this quaint street. Plenty of shopping including a great women's consignment shop.
Stingray Sushi
Great happy hour specials.
Great spot for a group/family dinner
Scottsdale Stadium
If you're in town during late February/March, check out a Giant's spring training game. Lots of affordable seats. It's fun to hang out with long-time baseball fans and chat baseball.
