Yes, there's the great outdoors. But there are plenty of places around town where you can enjoy being outside without having to wear your hiking boots and a backpack. In fact, you can wear flip-flops and enjoy table service. There are dozens of restaurants and coffee houses that offer patio seating that allows you to enjoy the intersection of civilization and open skies, and you probably have a favorite or two. But don't forget the Arizona Inn, that amazing jewel boxed in pink smack in the middle of town. The grounds are lovely and lounging on the patio with a beverage can send you on a back-in-time fantasy when life was simple but the plumbing was still indoors.
