Well I finally made it! I have made the long journey from Ohio to AZ! I am getting started in my job and settling down here in Chandler! So far I love it.
I agree with the other posts that it is a beautiful state. Much more exciting than Ohio.
So, all you natives, tell me, what is there to do in this town?? Where are all the famous spots in Phoenix?? I literally know no one here besides my family that moved with me. I have only been here 1 week. Ive been slowly exploring Chandler/Mesa/Tempe. My fiancee and I love the theatre, dining out (all restaurants from fast food to fine dining), shopping, out door activities, museums, bar hopping occasionally....

If you don't mind spending a little $$ for great food, there is a place in downtown Tempe (right off of 7th and Mill) called 'House of Tricks'. It is an old house, converted to a restaraunt. AWESOME food, very romantic!! During the winter they have a big outdoor central fire burning, and the food....let's just say go there hungry and leave room for dessert!!! They have the best dessert in town!!
That said, there is so much to do here. If you like hiking you can hike up to the wind caves over by Superstition mountains (can't remember the name right now), you just missed Gilbert Days, where there's a big parade and then rodeos in Gilbert. Chandler has the ostrich festival. Chandler Mall is awesome and they're building a new mall out at S-202 and Greenfield.
I've heard a lot of good things about St. Joes, congratulations on getting a job there and starting your new career!!! I hope to be in starting my new job this time next year!!
Graduate Dec '07!!!!
