    Mill Ave and Old Town Scottsdale will hold you down. I live in Tucson but when I'm up in Phoenix I always go tubing down the Salt River. You can rent a tube for pretty cheap and its always a good time. Roosevelt Lake is right next to it too

    So here in Phx now since moving from Mpls 3 months ago and enjoying the weather and having to wait until the Fall to attend ASU.

    Can anyone recommend me a good bike shop in Phx?

    Good list - I would hike Camelback Mountain or Squaw Peak as well. Even worth it to go halfway if you're not a hiker... crazy views.

    Roll thru High Point in Scottsdale and Pound For Pound in Downtown PHX. Some legit sneaker enthusiasts over there.

    I need some input. Been in AZ for a year now and I'm trying to make my first sneaker purchase since being out here. What should I expect? Do stores still do raffles? Open early?

    Lines out here aren't as crazy as other parts of the country for the bigger releases. I don't really buy sneakers like that anymore but the few times I do I am usually able to walk in and get them without hassle. You'll never catch me camping out for kicks though

    I'll have to go to the local mall I guess to kinda get a feel like yall said. I brought a nice size collection with me when I moved here but I haven't picked up anything new since. Where I came from, dudes had to camp. They kinda got away from that now where they do raffle tickets. I just didn't know the culture out here. Thanks for the tips.

    Six months here I really like Stevens shoe on East Thomas. All the shoes in there brought me back to my high school days. Not into shoes like that right now but I like the older stuff and it was cool finding that spot.

    The Tucson Mall just got a House of Hoops last year. It's a cool store, prices a little too much for me though
