Phoenix’s Most Instagram-Able Spots
Recently I took a trip out to Phoenix to escape some of the cold weather in my hometown and enjoy myself. I’ve been to Phoenix a couple times and it is by far my favorite city in the US. It’s warm year around plus the desert aesthetic is just breathtaking. Another amazing part of Phoenix is of course all of the photo-ops you get from being in such a beautiful place. Below I’ve taken my own little spin on the best places for photography in Phoenix.
Desert Botanical Garden in Scottsdale, this is a little nature preserve dedicated to plants from all different deserts. They also have a monarch butterfly garden that is purely surreal.
Roosevelt Row in downtown Phoenix, this whole area is dedicated to street art and is flooding with the most interesting murals
Phoenix Art Museum in downtown Phoenix. This museum had so many displays but my favorite by far would have to be the firefly room pictures above which featured millions of little string lights to mimic fireflies in the summer
Friendship Inn Motel, this isn’t really a destination spot as it’s really just an old motel that closed down but I fell absolutely in love with the whole aesthetic of this place. The pastels of this place really turn it into a dreamy desert scenery
McDowell Sonoran Preserve, I opted out of choosing a close up picture of myself so I could show off some of the beautiful desert flora and fauna. This preserve is in northern Scottsdale and has tons of different trails ranging in difficulty. Also I might add it’s an absolutely breathtaking place to watch sunset.
Last but certainly not least, Phoenix Mountain Preserves. This place is so beautiful and allows you to see views of all the mountains in Phoenix along with views of Scottsdale, Tempe, and Phoenix. I chose to hike Piestewa Peak and it definitely did not disappoint.
