I was in Scottsdale, Arizona over the weekend for my friends bachlorette party and lets just say it did not disappoint! For real though - when I told people I was going to a "Bachlorette party in Arizona" most people looked at me confused and wondered why a group of 30 something-year-olds would want to go there. Seriously guys, Scottsdale is the place to be!
I arrived at our Air B&B Thursday afternoon. The house was AMAZING - it was a mansion tucked into a hill with a beautiful infinity pool overlooking Scottsdale. When I arrived the girls were already hanging out by the pool. They had gotten a chef to bring groceries and cook breakfast and lunch. In the evening we kicked off the celebrations with gifts for the bride-to-be and got our swag bags. We had dinner reservations at Hula's at 8PM and then checked out the bar scene (Dakota, Bottled Blonde, etc).
Friday was our spa day at Spa Lamar. The spa was so relaxing and we had such a good time relaxing. We also made it a point to leave our phones in our lockers just to relax and unwind. We all did a spa package which included access to all the amenities (pool, sauna, steam room, hot tub), lunch, and 50 minute massage. After the spa we headed to Old Town (5th Ave) to shop and walk around. Afterwards, we did a two hour party bike with Arizona Party Bike which was a two-hour bike tour which made three stops.
Saturday was the morning we did horseback riding at Cave Creek Outfitters. I can tell you it was pretty scary for me at first trying to get onto the saddle but once I was up there it was perfectly fine. The horseback tour was about an hour and half. It was pretty hot outside but we had alot of fun. I started getting the hang of it and had a good time. The folks that took us out were very informative and accommodating. Afterwards we went back to the house to shower, freshen up, and change. We had High Tea reservations at The Phoenician which is a luxury resort. Afterwards we headed back to the house to go swimming and ordered in dinner since our flights were early the next morning.
