    Hey there Desiree! I am planning a weekend getaway and am deciding between Palm Springs and the Phoenix/Scottsdale area (from Seattle). Have you travelled to both cities? Which one do you prefer for a weekend getaway?

    • desireehartsock

      Hi Landry! You can’t go wrong with either choice! Both are extremely hot in the summer (over 100+) so it may depend on what you’re looking for. I personally LOVE Palm Springs because it feels like I’m in another country and the pool time is the best. Always makes for a very relaxing getaway.

      However, if you are interested in more nightlife and going out then I would say to do Scottdale area because you can do pool time during the day and there’s a lot more to do at night then in PS. Hope that helps.

        Thank you so much! We are thinking of going in October 🙂
