"I've stayed at the Arizona Biltmore, which is one of the earlier hotels in Phoenix. Great restaurants. The swimming pools are spaced out throughout the resort, so it's not like everyone congregates in one spot. It's just a very well-laid-out resort. Great golf course. The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess is beautiful, too. The Phoenician is a little ostentatious, with sort of a Vegasy flair, but it's still beautifully done. Or you can spend a night at The Boulders in Carefree. When you hear about a place called The Boulders, you think, Oh, I wonder how they came to that particular title. Upon arriving, you'll realize it is just what it says: It's boulders - a hotel perched in the middle of this really unique setting. Great golf there, as well."
"I've climbed Camelback Mountain. I read a story that somebody actually got stuck or lost up there, and I was kind of baffled by that. It's nothing like Mount Lemmon; it doesn't have that kind of altitude. Some people do some pretty amazing rock climbing on Camelback, me not being one of them. But it's a pretty spot and a great vantage point to see a lot of different parts of Phoenix."
