And nothing is better than live music at putting a smile on my face. I love going to "The Big Bang" piano bar in Tempe to sip a beer and sing along to all my favorite songs.
There are so many great places to hike in the area, but my favorite is Piestewa Peak. The views are incredible and it isn't too crowded. Remember to bring water and your camera.

If you're looking for that "one of a kind" piece of modern jewelry or piece of contemporary art, Occassions by Design, in the heart of Scottsdale's Art District, offers a diverse selection of work.
My favorite designer consignment store by far is My Sister's Closet. The choice is amazing - Prada, Louis Vuitton and Jimmy Choo, to name a few. You never know what new pieces you'll find and they're always 60%-95% below retail price.

After a long game, I like to head over to Rock Bar, Inc. in Old Town ScottsdaleThe live music is always good or there's a rock DJ spinning. They also have the largest rooftop patio bar in town.
McCormick Golf Course is the perfect place to spend any day. The course is beautiful and the views of McDowell and Camelback Mountains are a bonus during game time.

In Phoenix is Made Art Boutique, another one of a kind gem. Made Art Boutique carries jewelry and pottery from local designers, books about DIY and even Sun Jars. You'll have to stop and take a look.
One of my favorite places to shop for the small people in my life is Little Artika. They have the most unique children's items, including furniture, clothing, games and art projects.
