If you’re hankering for a change of scenery, then plan an all-day Phoenix adventure. Start the day with a delicious breakfast, play outside in the afternoon sun, and then purchase takeout from one of our local restaurants. Gather the family, pack up the car, and prepare for a perfect Phoenix day.

Planning Your Day Trip

Eat Local

Every adventurer knows to not start the day on an empty stomach! Organicos Bakery is now open at their new location in the Phoenix Industrial Studios along S. Pacific Highway. Organicos is a locally-owned bakery specializing in gluten-free and vegan breads and baked goods. Their freshly baked breads, treats and pastries will be an instant hit in your household. Current retail hours are Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, 7 a.m. – 2 p.m. (or until sold out), Saturday and Sunday, 7am – 2 p.m. (or until sold out), and closed on Wednesday and Friday. Drop in early and get your favorite treat!

Playtime in the Park

Please note that Blue Heron Park’s playground is currently closed due to damage sustained from the Almeda Fire. Some of the park remains open.

From the Phoenix Industrial Studios, it’s an easy stroll on the Bear Creek Greenway to Blue Heron Park, a beloved gathering place for locals and visitors. With an incredible 24 acres to explore, you’ll stay busy for hours wandering the grounds, eating your pastries under the gazebo, or watching the kids have fun on the two playgrounds. If you have that competitive edge, Blue Heron Park has a sand volleyball court available for your next game. There’s also a bike trail at the edge of the park, a community garden, butterfly garden, and numerous large, grassy areas.

We’ll Handle Dinner

After a full day of outdoor exploration, it’s time to relax with a meal from a local Phoenix restaurant. El Comal Taqueria & Grill has some of the most authentic Mexican cuisine in the area, with freshly made tacos, burritos, salsa, seafood and more. For the adults, El Comal also offers their margaritas and cocktails to-go. Once you get home, there’s nothing better than opening up your takeout and inhaling the warm aromas of Mexican spices and a delicious, ready-made meal.
