Cactus are Cooler. 

In between exploring Sedona we were checking out Phoenix. 

Huge shout out to the Jones's (the best unofficial god parents a girl could ask for) for letting me visit. 

Phoenix is just as incredible as Sedona. If you're into more cacti and more restaurants/shops etc. Phoenix should be on your list. 

Also, you will find the Phoenix Botanical Gardens that you don't want to miss. 

Check it out.
