Tlaquepaque and last day in Arizona
Hey, guys!!! This is the last post about my trip to Arizona. So after we finished our Broken Arrow Tour with Pink Jeep Tours (post here), we walked a little around Sedona and then proceeded to leave because we wanted to head back to the Phoenix area before it got too late. Here are a few more pictures I took before leaving Sedona.
When doing my research for this trip, I read about a little arts & crafts village named Tlaquepaque. It automatically sounded familiar to me because when I was younger, I visited an arts & crafts village by the same name in the Mexican state of Jalisco so I was excited to check out this little village to see if it looked like the real one. On our way back from Sedona, we stopped by and checked it out. Surprisingly, it looks exactly like it!!! There’s a street/alleyway in the town in Mexico in which the local artisans display their arts and crafts and where the people can walk through and browse along the different shops. Well, that same street/alleyway was replicated in this village. This village also reminded me so much of Mexico in general, such as the haciendas that I have visited in different parts of the country as well as Tlaquepaque in Mexico. Here are some pictures of Tlaquepaque in Sedona.
On our way back from Tlaquepaque, I noticed how beautiful the sky looked and decided to take a couple of shots.
Our last day in Arizona would be for shopping so we decided to grab some breakfast and then hit the local outlets and do some damage. After checking Yelp, yes, Yelp is my best friend when it comes to restaurants, we decided to have breakfast at Butters Pancakes & Café in Scottsdale. The food was so good; highly recommended if you’re ever in the area!
After having breakfast, we headed to the outlets. We shopped around for a while and scored some great deals at Kate Spade. They had a really good sale going on so I bought two purses. Of course, I didn’t need them, but who actually buys cause they need it?! lol. After that, we headed to the airport to catch our flight back to LA. It was a short trip, but very much needed. We had a great time and hope to be back soon! Hope you enjoyed my posts!
