My family and I chose to stay at the historical wigwam over a long weekend while we attended a wedding (not at the Wigwam. We arrived and were immediately welcomed and directed to concierge and front desk. All staff were very friendly and professional. Ya gals hung out by the HEATED pool and were served drinks and snacks poolside while the boys went golfing at one of the resorts courses. The rooms are VERY spacious and clean, and the beds were extremely comfortable. Bathrooms are large and nicely updated. The grounds are very well kept and picture perfect. We saw a wedding going on in a private garden area while we were there- it looked very beautiful and like a great place to tie the know. We enjoyed dinner at a couple of the restaurants there and breakfast in the cafe. My husband also received a massage and a haircut in the salon while we were there. All a good experience for us!

Beautiful ride with amazing guides! The route took about 1 hour, they helped teach a few of the basic riding skills to help make the ride comfortable. The horses were all rescues and very sweet and social- I highly recommend visiting then for a ride!

Rusty Wallace Racing Experience

Reviewed By RH H

Great heart pumping adrenaline rush as a driver in car by yourself. Only complaint I have is the ear pieces. Should use ear buds in the canal you can put in before putting helmet on. Instead of foam pads you have to jam up inside somehow on a very snug helmet. Both of us had to come back in to readjust so could hear instructions. Still great afternoon with good classroom prep.

Phoenix International Raceway

Since 1964, Phoenix International Raceway has been the premier motorsports venue in the Southwest. Founded as an open-wheel racing mecca, PIR was proud to host the Desert Diamond West Valley Phoenix Grand Prix Verizon IndyCar Series race under the lights in April. Phoenix is the only track in the West to feature two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekends a year, beginning with the Good Sam 500 race weekend in March. The schedule is anchored by the upcoming Can-Am 500 race weekend in November, the semifinal race in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup after which the field will be reduced to the final four championship contenders.

My first visit to this track resulted in witnessing one of the best races of the season. While we did arrive very early, the traffic control put in place was running smoothly. Getting around inside the track was easy. Good variety of places to view the race. Friendly personnel. I hope to return someday.

Went here for a volleyball tournament my daughter was playing in. None of the concessions were open but it is a easy stadium to get to with good parking and access to near by shopping, food and Gil’s river arena. Was very cool for my daughter to get to play on stadium, might have to go back for a nfl game.

Goodyear Ballpark

Goodyear Ballpark is the Spring Training and player development home of the Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds.

Reviewed By Jack F - Vandalia, Ohio

This place makes me embarrassed to be a Reds fan! At the ticket office on Sat. (3/17) afternoon, the printer that prints the tickets and receipts wasn't working. Then come the crusty retirees, working as volunteers are certainly not impressive representatives of the team. Then we get to the concession stands, where they might be manned by service groups or employees that could not care less. The lines from about the 2nd inning until games end are always way too long. BUT!! the most ridiculous thing that happened to us over 3 days was not one day did the concession stand have Cincinnati Chili Cheese Coneys (Skylines) becuase they didn't have buns. I am not kidding! it was as if no one knew where to buy buns. AND! for 2 days, they left the item on the menu board, infuriating customers that had waited for 2 or 3 innings on account of the unqaulified help - only to discover they were out of the queen city headline item. A few years ago, they offered a lo-end valu beer (PBR) at all the stand; but, that seems to have been just too fan friendly as they've dropped cheaper beers. Even the landscaping is half *ss ! this place has been open for a decade and as you walk up they have a dirt rock area greeting fans. The Reds - and likelt the Indians, who share this pit, and city of goodyear rely on fans from legit parks like the giants and cubs to come to Goodyear where you can always get a ticket.

Estrella Mountain Regional Park

Reviewed By Shaun L - Goodyear, Arizona

Went hiking here on a Saturday. It was pretty easy to get to and parking seemed ample. Note - it is $6.00 to park. There looked to be a TON of trail options from easy to expert. You're pretty close to the Coral West horseback riding (doing that next week) which would be nice to incorporate. There are RV spots, camping spots and there was a lake which I wish I would have explored. The only regret is not having a bit more time to spend here.

Harkins Theatres

Reviewed By JSTRICK96 - Goodyear, Arizona

To be labeled as one of the state of the art movie theaters in Arizona, not to mention the country this place looks like a dump. Parking lot dirty landscaping sub-par, some palm trees cut open some not what’s the deal??? I can understand the first month or so to work out the bugs but it’s been well over 6 months now and I can’t tell if the building is open or closed. The sign looks like it belongs to a drive thru restaurant, not even digital or showing what’s playing. I think the bar is overrated only a few seats. The recliner chars inside the theaters are always broken, a few was broken on opening night from what I read. The food is the same old high price typical movie theater food. No thanks!!! Save your money stay at home and wait for the movies to be released on DVD until the Manager gets his or her act together.

I have passed this place a hundred times. I decided to check it out. It was much, much larger then I thought it was going to be. Two floors and the first floor is enormous. It looks like a lot of the things that people have collected over time have ended up here. Everything from furniture to just about anything you can think of. A lot of parts of people collectable hobbies are here. It was very impressive. It is going to take you some time to go through all the isles but it is worth it. If you want to add to your collection of anything, buy some furniture or add to your decor then definitely come brows this place. Be careful bringing the small kids there is a lot of stuff to break in this place.
