Unusual Phoenix

This date centers around South Mountain, located just south of downtown Phoenix.

Start with brunch at the Farm at South Mountain, one of the most unique restaurants in Phoenix with outdoor dining in a pecan grow. Enjoy a delicious sandwich and prepare for the adventure to come.

Next up, the Mystery Castle. This unique museum was built as a home and is open to tours on a limited basis. The construction techniques are unique, and it stands as a testament to determination. And it is pretty unusual in its shape as well.

From there it is a short drive to the entrance to South Mountain park. You can stop at South Mountain or Ponderosa Stables and rent a pair of horses to see the park slowly, or you can drive to the lookout point near the TV and radio antennas for a bird's eye view of Phoenix. See Phoenix as you have never seen it before.

If you really want to impress, do a little research online and explain about the Phoenix Points of Pride designation on the castle and the park.

That's so funny seeing Mystery Castle on here. I used to live right down the street from there as a kid. I would ride my bike up there all the time and go check it out. Definitely a cool little place to go to.
