    OK all you Scottsdale guys...

    My fiance and I are taking a road trip out to Paradise Valley the weekend of 6/4. It is the first time I have been there, so I don't know where I should go, what there is to do out there, or any good local restaurants.

    Any suggestions??

    Help an AZ border supporter out :)

    Not sure what kind of restaurants you are interested in, but my friend recommended this place. She said the food was amazing.

    If you are looking to see some of Arizona, you could do a day trip to Sedona. Its not that far and beautiful.

    yeah all of Fox's restaurants are great. they all have a different feel and type of food. except they are a little bit higher price but well worth it.

    Seems pretty popular, thanks for the tip :D

    I am so sick of Cali I need a weekend out of here

    Friday - Sunday evening

    Cool dude thanks, definitely will check at least 1 of them out :)

    HAHAA finally the M4. Shooting sounds awesome, but I will have to clear it with my fiance first :cool: The drive to your place won't be an issue. Know any good prerunner friendly trails by you?

    Hit up Old Town Scottsdale...Lots of cool bars and restaurants. Plus Fashion Square Mall is a cool place to visit and check out the scenes.

    You could go to the Zoo, take off your pant and flip off the monkeys...thats always fun :laugh:
