We (I am 55, my wife is 52) will be visiting for about 1 week in mid-February. We are looking for recommendations of things to do, places to eat and places to stay. Some info on our likes and budget:
We enjoy scenic drives, photography, wildlife, unusual museums, parks and conservatories. Normally we are up to a fair amount of walking, but will be limited on this trip as my wife will be about 8 weeks post knee replacement surgery.
For restaurants, we like places that have simple good food with friendly service. We are not interested in "fine dining" - more of a "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" eaters. If the Phoenix area has a local specialty, we are interested in trying it out.
For hotels, we are middle of the road. Typically we stay at a Hampton or similar hotel. Our budget is flexible here, but I would expect 110-150/night.
Thanks in advance for your help - Looking forward to our visit.
