So I decided to take a short solo trip to recharge. I'm going to visit a friend in Phoenix, and I've never been! The trip is mid-May.

I'm finally going to spend my hotel points and stay at the snazzy new Andaz Scottsdale. I'm SO excited! I'm also considering crossing off a bucket list item: renting a poolside cabana for the day.

It'll be my first time staying at posh resort, so I imagine I will mostly stay there and relax, catching up with my friend. What would you recommend for exploring the Phoenix area one morning/evening?
