Biltmore Fashion Plaza and Resort, Phoenix
Print Leave a comment
The Biltmore area is the fancy area of Phoenix. Lush with tropical flowers and palms, and backed by pretty granite mountains, the Biltmore neighborhood is a nice place to explore. Fountains and flowerpots abound at the Biltmore Fashion Plaza, making it a pretty place to shop: check out Queen Creek Olive Mill where you can buy locally made olive oil and the unique gift shop called For the People. There is plenty of shade and misters to keep you cool. Park in the back for easy, free parking. If you're hungry, try Zinburger, for burgers that aren't salty or greasy.
Nearby, the Arizona Biltmore Resort is interesting to stroll around. Drive up the palm-lined drive and you feel relaxed and ready to explore. Opened in 1929, this hotel is one of the oldest resort hotels in America and many stars have frequented the hotel.
Nearby, take a buns-of-steel hike at Squaw Peak Park, where cute little saguaro cactus that line the mountain will inspire you to continue on despite the heat!
Avoid driving around this area during peak hour traffic, from 5-7pm.
