The up-and-coming Seventh Avenue strip between Indian School and Camelback Road is peppered with LGBTQ-friendly bars, restaurants, lots of antique/vintage stores, old auto body shops and other old-school mom-and-pop shops. A growing number of trendy bars, restaurants and shops have been invading the neighborhood making for an eclectic destination.
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.
