Instagram Travel Guide | Phoenix
The blog post we have ALL been waiting for is here!! I always seem to need a reminder of where all the cute spots in Phoenix are. I like living here in Scottsdale but I wish we had a lil more variety in scenery if ya know what I mean. Phoenix is just very - brown. So it always seems to take a bit more work to find new cute spots here, but we did it!!
In this blog I’ll be sharing the locations of LOTS of my IG posts (which are also just fun spots to go to in general!) so if you’re curious - keep reading!
Here’s my list of the most Instagrammable spots here in Phoenix, AZ:
Old Town Scottsdale - has very colorful, vintage vibes. Lots of cute shops and restaurants.
DC Ranch - this area has cute shops and restaurants. Lots of desert vibes here.
Downtown Gilbert - there’s a really cute strip of restaurants down here and even a lil water tower!
Original ChopShop - CUTE + they have the best avocado toast ever.
Chelsea’s Kitchen - such good food and the cutest atmosphere. Sit outside if you can!
Ruze Cake House - cute. cute. cute. Really yummy macarons and cotton candy topped on your drinks!
La Grande Orange Grocery & Pizzeria - the most unique lil bakery, cafe and grocery store all rolled into one!
In-N-Out - okay this is an obvious one, but it’s a classic for a reason :)
McDowell Sonoran Preserve - one of the prettiest desert hikes you’ll ever go on. go for sunset and thank me later ;)
Old Town Farmers’ Market - this one is only open during certain months of the year so if you catch when it’s open, definitely go. they have lots of fresh fruit, veggies, flowers and yummy food.
