Manic: Another hockey trip. We’ve been traveling with my son’s hockey teams for the last seven years and any time we go out of town, it is a bit hectic to prepare our home, pets and other details, so we can get away.
Managed: This trip! Flagstaff was so relaxing and was a nice and easy get away. Read on to see where to stay, what to eat and where to shop. I loved this trip and our team played well, too! Here is our weekend away to fabulous Flag told with pictures…
After a restful night in our room at SpringHill Suites www.flagstaffspringhillsuites.com, we ventured out to sneak in a cup of my favorite coffee before heading to my son’s hockey game.
In addition to Macy’s European Coffeehouse, Bakery & Vegetarian Restaurant, www.macyscoffee.net, I also recommend another Flag favorite place for great Thai food….
At Pato Thai, we paired our Pinot Grigio wine with two amazing dishes. The first dish that is pictured to the left of the rice is the Yellow Curry, which is made with potato, carrot and onion in coconut milk. The other dish is the spicy Panang that consists of authentic Thai chili paste, peanut sauce, bell pepper, green bean, carrot and corn in coconut milk. So incredibly tasty! Pato Thia http://patothai.com/home.html is located at 104 N. San Francisco Street in downtown Flagstaff.
And we did some shopping. I found several favorite pieces at the Basement Marketplace located in the Old Town Shops at 120 N. Leroux. Not only were the fashions fun and fabulous, but the staff was very friendly and helpful, too.
And Flagstaff is a fun place for pets, too….
Sorry I don’t have more scenic pictures of Flagstaff because it is a beautiful place to visit. When I wasn’t at the Jay Lively ice rink (which has a fun playground) to watch my son’s team play hockey… as you can see…. I was either shopping or eating! Flagstaff is a great place to visit for the price, for the food, for the shops and mostly for the beautiful mountains and pine trees that will soon be capped with snow.
