Happy Hour in Scottsdale: The Best Places to Go

World travel

Parenthood is a mix of fun and exhausting. From the early morning struggles of preparing the kids for school to late night runs to the grocery, life becomes a lot different when you become parents.

But because you now run a brood doesn’t mean you can have some fun every once in a while. Parents need a break too and what better way to do it than through travelling. And if you’re not so comfortable leaving the kids for a long time to go overseas, you can plan a getaway in one of the many beautiful destinations in the country, one of which is Scottsdale, Arizona.
