We were hoping to eat at The Summit (Snowbird’s mountaintop restaurant while enjoying views of snow-capped slopes and the Salt Lake Valley) but we didn’t realize in this early season that they were only open on weekends. Only opened in 1971, Snowbird’s Aerial Tram takes us on a 1.6 mile cable and up 2,900 vertical feet which takes about 10-minutes to reach the top of Hidden Peak – Elevation of 11,000 ft. Here I’ve captured some views of the experience.
Originally, we were going to visit the City of Scottsdale to eat at Big Earl’s BBQ based on watching Travel Channel’s Man vs Food (Episode: Adam Goes for the Sides). But after talking to several locals, they recommended checking out Rusty Spur Saloon in Old Town. It’s described as, "the Oldest Cowboy Saloon in Scottsdale, with live music." The place had rave reviews on TripAdvisor (4.5 out of 5 stars). Rusty Spur’s menu had “The Best Tamale in Phoenix” on their menu. We had to see for ourselves!
