While visiting The New Boy, I have been able to explore a little bit of the Phoenix area. Years ago, I had stopped by to see an aunt who was living in Glendale, a town in the greater Phoenix area, and so I decided to see what the town is like now. We loaded The Boy up in his stroller and wandered the streets of Downtown Glendale. There are antique stores, tea shops, parks, a library, and much more. The downtown reminds me of Downtown Fullerton or Old Town Camarillo.
The local library is located in a park and of course since The Princess was with us we HAD to go in and look over the used books for sale. I'll show you the treasures I found--tomorrow.
Evidently Marty Robbins once lived in this area--
We were ready for coffee and a snack when we passed the Marty Robbins Plaza and found a wonderful independent coffee house, A Shot of Java.
A Shot of Java is owned by Lisa and was voted 'Best of Phoenix' neighborhood coffee house in 2007, and we can see why!
