Mini Weekend Getaway to Flagstaff, AZ

IMG_2987

This past weekend we decided to pack up our pup Phillip and hit the road to Flagstaff, AZ to escape the Phoenix heat (kind of). Although it was only slightly cooler (around a 90 degree high), it made all the difference! We drove up mid-afternoon on Saturday after a quick stop to the Farmer’s Market for some yummy snacks.

We drove straight to a small trail, Tom Moody Trail. It was short, easy and dog friendly so we thought it would be a great place to start. It started out promising Β but boy were we wrong…

After getting about 1/2 way in our poor little pork-chop, Phillip, decided to lay down and that was the end. Kirby, being the great dog-dad that he is literally had to carry her the rest of the way back to the car… It’s pretty clear that Phillip may need a tad more exercise.

After we dropped the pork chop off at our hotel for a much deserved nap, we headed out to explore downtown Flagstaff on our bikes! Our first stop was Mother Road Brewing Company. I’ve got to admit that I’m not the biggest beer fan but I really enjoyed the Mother Road! The beer was great, the outdoor patio was pup friendly and they had one restaurant that you could order in from, and one that showed up at 4:30PM and did table service.

After Mother Road we headed out to find Dark Sky Brewing. DSB was located in the coolest building that was also dog friendly, had lots of games and a food truck on site! I love the atmosphere here. After a beer here we headed back out on our bikes to hangout at our hotel with Phil.

Sunday morning we slept in a little and then loaded up and checked out. We took Phillip with us toΒ May’s European Coffee House and BakeryΒ (not pictured: delicious iced lattes and dirt chai’s). After a quick breakfast we walked around downtown a bit and then hit the road!

Of course before getting back to Phoenix, we had to make one last stop at the scenic view for a few good selfies. It was a short, sweet (less than 24 hour) vacay to beat the rut of getting stuck inside during the very hot Phoenix summers!
