Built in 1929, the resort is set on 39 lush acres, and is 8 miles from the Phoenix Airport. Amenities: 8 pools, a 92-ft water slide and a swim-up bar, plus 7 tennis courts, and 2 golf courses. There's also a fitness center, a kids' camp and a playground, along with a spa.
*Since Kara's Mom (Gail) lives near here, we'll probably be hanging by the pool for drinks (water slide!) which is free access if you act like you're a guest (common thing among Phoenicians to sneak into resort pools), just bring your own towel and snacks!

Air BNB. There are LOTS of great options on Air BNB! We recommend staying within the mapped area at the top of this page (within the I-17 to 101 - 202 freeways) to get to all the wedding activities (see stars for locations per request of Gail Zucker for clarity to guests...) versus staying in the middle of nowhere, unless you prefer that sorta thing. No judgement. If you need help - feel free to reach out to Gail Zucker directly.

If you are concerned about cost restraints (we've been there!) - we have several family friends in Phoenix who have offered to host Kara or Sam's friends/family in their homes.
You would need to rent a car...(or use UBER/Lyft) but if you are considering this option, please contact Kara or Sam. :-)
