Places to eat
Nice place for dine-in or take-out Mexican. I love their Mexican pizza - It's listed as an appetizer but could easily feed 3 people! Tasty margaritas too.

I like their salads. I would go elsewhere for a steak. Friendly with a bar side and indoor/outdoor dining.

A little more pricey but nice Italian, and most important is the AMAZING gelato shop next door. The 'Stupify' gelato is my favorite, and my husband Gus can't get enough of the 'Cherry Vanilla'.

If you like authentic Italian gelato, then don't miss this place. Their gelato is DELICIOUS. They also have gluten free and dairy free options. Alessia's Restaurant is next door, but I'd get my desert here.

This is about 6 miles down the road but if you like huge sushi portions reasonably priced, this is your place. Not super fancy place, but my go-to for big portions of reasonably priced sushi.
Zugoi Asian Cuisine (new Sushi Kee)

Zushi is much closer than Zugoi, but owned by the same people. It is more of a wine bar atmosphere and a bit pricier than Zugoi, so if you are looking for a more hip atmosphere, give it a try.

Pretty view
Las Sendas is the neighborhood on the East of Power Rd, just North of McDowell Rd. If you drive up Las Sendas Mountain Drive, there are really pretty city lights views from the top. Go up after dark, its very nice to see all the city lights.

Sightseeing
The drive out to Tortilla Flat is the destination. It is a small and winding road that is very cool, but when you get to tortilla flat there is not much there except this bar/restaurant. Again, it's just a cool desert drive.

If you drive North up Power road, there are many stops you can check out the salt river, and maybe see some wild horses there. Some of the stops require you to purchase a Tonto Pass to park there. They can be picked up at many gas stations before you head out.

This is a hike up to the top so don't think of it if you are not in decent shape. Lots of rugged trails and some climbing over boulders, but I have done it with kids over 12 in tow. The view from the top is wonderful. It is high, and it is hot here, so bring way more water than you think that you need.

This is about 1.5 to 2 hours drive North towards Payson. The drive is pretty, and you can hike to the bridge. Pretty drive, not a strenuous hike, nice day trip.

City/town information
It is 2 to 2.5 hrs drive, so a long day trip, but if you are coming to see Arizona you need to go visit - perhaps for a few days. The scenery here is magnificent, and if you haven't been to the Grand Canyon yet, you should at least go to Sedona. Relaxing bohemian atmosphere and amazing hikes.

Porady dla podróżnych

Poruszanie się po okolicy
Javelina's and rattlesnakes
We have packs of wild javalina's who wander through our neighborhood and munch on the cactus'. They are not typically aggressive unless they have babies with them, so just give them a wide berth and they should not bother you. They are dark in color and are often seen at or after dusk, so be careful driving at night in case they are in the road. Unless there is a full moon you may not see them in the road till you get close. We are in the AZ desert and we have rattlesnakes. They tend to shelter under bushes - just watch your step at night.

Please don't leave anything on the roof!
One big ask is that if you take anything up to the roof that you do not leave anything up there. We get sudden crazy winds out of nowhere, and we had roof damage previously when items were blown around up there. There has been recent damage to the roof that resulted in significant water damage inside the house. The holes have ben patched, but the walkway has not been fully reinstated because additional work still needs to be done. If you go up there, please be careful not to trip on the exposed wood, and stay on the pathway after the first few steps to get onto it.
