Even though I lived in Phoenix for years before making the move to Southern California, I never made it over to Roosevelt Row Arts District.

When I was back in AZ earlier this month I stopped by. First of all, it was really hot. I mean, really. I've sort of been missing the heat, except for at this point I didn't at all. Anyway, it was worth it - tons of little shops, art galleries and cafes.

Made boutique was pretty cool and there was actually a small art gallery, Eye Lounge, attached to it and currently on display is art by Lee Davis.

There's a ton of character in this neighborhood. Literally street, sidewalk and wall art everywhere - I couldn't stop snapping photos, even though I was melting in the heat.

So yeah, mark it on your 'Things To Do While In Phoenix' list.
