There is so many great areas around Phoenix to visit. Scottsdale and Arcadia might be the most talked about areas around Phoenix but today we wanted to point out an overlooked little nook on the south east side of Phoenix called Gilbert. Like the name, Gilbert stays true to it’s farming roots even though trendy modern restaurants fill the downtown area. Originally settled by Mormon farmers Gilbert has a safe moral vibe about it. A place you can happily and safely raise a family and do fun family things like bowl and watch movies. In fact Gilbert was rated one of the safest places to raise a family in the US in 2016.
With the fun vintage vibe, versatile eating options, and fun expanding night life, Gilbert is soon becoming the go to place to live and visit in Arizona. We suggest trying OHSO for happy and bit to eat or a little later head down top the dive bar Champs for a beer and some darts. If you’re out and about on a Tuesday check out Postinos if you don’t mind the hours long wait most of the time.
With a new Speak easy and Culinary Dropout on the way we suggest taking a trip for the day or weekend and seeing what Gilbert’s local business has to offer.
