This might not strike you as a terribly fun thing to do in Phoenix, Arizona, especially if you’re just visiting. This article was designed specifically for people that are looking for a home in Phoenix. Of course, in our Phoenix blog style, we’ll show you some great stops along the way wherever it is that you’re hunting for homes. Please take our advice and be amazed at the beautiful homes you might find (and probably never knew existed!) right in the heart of downtown Phoenix.
There’s a section of Phoenix, well specifically it’s more of a neighborhood… so there’s a neighborhood in downtown Phoenix that will make you feel like you’re not even in the desert! It’s a complete escape from the typical downtown scene and most of the typical residential landscapes that you’ll find throughout the Phoenix metro area. It’s a neighborhood off of 5th St and Central called the “old Phoenix neighborhood”. This neighborhood is full of job dropping houses with huge trees that outline the streets and can seriously take your breath away. The reason we’re bringing this neighborhood up is because if you’re looking for homes, even if they’re out of your price range, you should definitely take an hour and let your realtor show you a few on the market in this area. It will seriously be worth your while!
We discussed some pretty cool places to eat and drink in our blog post about spending a night at the D’Backs game and also in our post about the convention center, but there’s a few places we didn’t get to mention in those posts and we’d like to take the time to do so here. There is a famous pizza place pretty close the the “old Phoenix neighborhood” that we were talking about called Red Devil Pizza. This place started in downtown Phoenix and quickly became such a popular spot that they expanded to a few more locations throughout the valley. We really love this place because although it’s more of a chain restaurant now, it still hasn’t lost that great customer service and definitely doesn’t give you that corporate feel. If you or your loved one is a vegetarian, they actually have a vegetarian pizza that is out of this world! The other place we wanted to mention is Frank’s Chicago style burgers and dogs. If you’re house hunting and looking for a quick stop, this place will blow your socks off! Please contact us if you’ve eaten at any of these restaurants of visited the old Phoenix neighborhood, we’d love to hear from you!
