Long weekend

Coming to the Tempe/Scottsdale are for my boyfriends birthday. Is there anything special I could plan for him? He's turning 25, we're going to do some hiking and exploring the area, but I'd like to plan something fun and different for him. Any ideas?

What time of year?

These aren't specifically Southwestern but different.

iFly in Scottsdale? When I was in Costco a couple of weeks ago they had discounted cards.

On a cheaper note - the drive in movie theater.

If he likes golf - TopGolf.

A day trip to Sedona.

We'll be coming the beginning of October. And I'm thinking about a day trip to Sedona, but it's a surprise trip and he's the only one of us that will be old enough to rent a car (I'm still 24), so I have to wait for his input on that.

I think he'd really like TopGolf! Thanks for the idea.

See if any good concerts in the area such as at Talking Stick, or at the Musical Instruments Museum. In case he like music, the Musical Instruments Museum is amazing.


If into craft beer, do some bar hopping close to Arizona State University in Tempe.

Go intertubing on the Salt River.

Do you like music? The MIM is a must do. Can be an all day event - lots to do and see.
