It wasn’t so long ago that downtown Phoenix turned into a ghost town after 5 p.m. Since those days, a lot has happened: Arizona State University and the University of Arizona have moved campuses downtown; the CityScape retail and food hub and the light rail were built; and new bars and restaurants, art galleries, and music venues have emerged, ultimately making the city center a bona fide walkable downtown experience.
Meet Carrie Wheeler
Carrie has lived in the Phoenix area since 3rd grade. She left for short stints in Osaka, D.C. and L.A., but has always found her way back to the desert. One of her favorite things about living in the Valley: the smell of creosote bushes after a rain. Her biggest dislike: finding live scorpions in and around her house.
