Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport Restaurants Voted #2 In The Nation As Best To Eat At

A recent study and survey conducted by Reward Expert has listed the top 5 airports with the best restaurants, chosen from the top 20 most trafficked airports in the US. They further reviewed a whopping 75,000 restaurants and gathered menu and pricing options to determine the best airport in terms of overall restaurant quality, variety, as well as the top airports for different dining categories.  Phoenix Sky Harbor came in at #2

Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport came in at number 2.   Not bad for the nations fifth largest city, actually, it’s awesome. Sky Harbor in my humble opinion is one of the easiest airports to navigate and most efficient too. Denver came in at #1 by the way.

But back to Phoenix, the restaurants had almost 5,500 reviews that were tallied; Chelsea’s Kitchen a place I frequent often is one the gems listed. However, here are a few more unbelievable fine-dining places now in the airport. How Phoenix didn’t come in at #1 is beyond us.

Honestly, I leave early prior to flying out to sit at these fine dining experiences and eat some food, grab a drink and get some much-needed work done. Congratulations Phoenix for investing in the future of our town and making visitors want to come back because of places like these.

Why Arizona Will Never Observe Daylight Savings Time

This coming Sunday morning, most of the nation will “spring forward” for Daylight Savings Time and will lose an hour of sleep. Hawaii and Arizona are the only two states that will not.

daylight savings time semper find my homeFor all of us here in Arizona it means we will no longer be on MST but rather the same time as all the states west of us and we’ll be three hours behind the East Coast instead of the two that we are now.

Most people don’t know the origins of DST though. It began in 1918 and was known as “war time” in order to save fuel during WWI.

It was re-instated for WWII and was permanently brought back by the Uniform time Act of 1966. Arizona partook in it for one summer, and quickly withdrew from it because it meant having more sunlight in the evening, which meant more air conditioning and more energy being used along with more water usage, a valuable commodity in this part of the country.

In 1967 the State legislators, almost unanimously, voted to opt out of DST. Another cool tidbit of information is that the Navajo Indian Nation in the northeast quarter of the state does observe DST. So Arizonans, this Sunday, sit back, relax and don’t touch that clock.
