Our final day in Arizona began at the Scottsdale Fashion Square! We had visited this area a few nights earlier when we went to Olive & Ivy for dinner and we wanted to check in out during the daytime!
We arrived in the area mid-morning and walked along the promenade for a bit once the shops opened up. It was a beautiful and sunny day and it felt so good to soak up our last day of the fantastic weather in AZ!
After walking around outside, we headed into the Scottsdale Fashion Mall to do some browsing. We loved walking through this mall because it reminded a us a lot of the Galleria back home! This mall was filled with lots of high-end stores such as Burberry, GUCCI, etc. and it was so fun to browse around! All of the natural light within the mall reminded me a lot of my trips to the Ala Moana Center while visiting my best friend, Allie!
After our trip through the mall, we headed back to Modern Market for lunch since we loved it so much when we were there the other day!
I ordered the same sandwich as last time because it was so, so good! Fresh mozzarella, arugula, tomato, and blueberry preserves on ciabatta! The blueberry preserves seriously MADE this sandwich! I definitely want to take a stab at recreating this at home!
After lunch, we walked down to the other end of the promenade and relaxed by the canal for a bit before heading to another park to hang out in the sun for a bit before returning our rental car.
It was just so crazy how it was low 80s and sunny in Scottsdale, and a chilly 28* in Minneapolis on this particular day! We've already started talking about how a warm weather getaway needs to occur each winter!
After a couple hours in the sun, we dropped off our rental car and headed to the airport! We grabbed a quick dinner near our gate before boarding our evening flight to Minneapolis. We had such a great vacation and are already looking forward to heading back to AZ sometime for a trip to visit The Grand Canyon!
