Scottsdale, Arizona Travel Guide: Favorite Restaurants + Things To Do

Happy Tuesday! 

I can’t believe I haven’t made an Arizona Travel Guide yet!! I have been vacationing in Arizona for as long as I can remember, so it has always felt like a second home for me. Now that my mom actually lives there full time, it actually is a second home for me! Over the years, I have been able to try out tons of restaurants in the Scottsdale area and now that I’m making this list, I’ve realized there are sooo many good ones. Because it rarely rains there, Arizona offers tons of cute outdoor restaurants which allow you to sit out on a patio while sippin’ on a yummy drink, soakin’ up the sun. So naturally, most of the restaurants I mentioned have outdoor patios!

Below I have listed out my favorite restaurants and a few things to do for all you desert lovers!

Diego Pops – such a fun atmosphere and perfect for taking cute photos! You have to get the guacamole and the guava coconut drink if you go! 

Farm and Craft – this is right down the street from Diego Pops and equally as cute! The decor is adorable plus they offer gluten-free and organic meals. 


True Food Kitchen – seriously so good and so healthy! You can’t go wrong with anything on their menu. For something to sip on – the hangover RX is incredible (non-alcoholic)

SumoMaya –  this is a Mexican Asian fusion restaurant and a little more on the expensive side but sooo worth it. Their sushi is delicious and the Sizzling Chaufa Rice is out of this world.

The Herb Box – the avocado toast is sooo yummy and the outdoor patio is beautiful.

The Mission – Here you will find a modern, latin cuisine. The table side guac is seriously incredible and same goes for the margs!
