    I have an upcoming event in downtown Phoenix.

    The last time I stayed in the downtown core, it was a ghost town on the weekend.

    I'm contemplating staying somewhere else,( Scottsdale, Tempe,etc) where there may be more sight seeing and hubs of activity. Any areas to recommend and estimation of metro travel time to downtown Phoenix from another locale?

    El Nino has it cool and San Diego is looking like a good retreat for me.

    The Metro goes from Tempe to Phoenix and the City is all grown up actually. When will you be in town? ASU gets back in the middle of the month (January). Always something to do with great hiking up and near Camelback Mountain and the nude Canyon Sycamore creek. It's something else!!

    ^^ Plan to be in town mid Jan for the marathon. I was last there 5 years ago so perhaps downtown changed.

    Supplanted Philadelphia for a while as 5th largest city in the U.S., likely to overtake us again.

    Try staying near ASU/Mill Av. Take the light rail downtown as needed. Travel time is 20 minutes or so between ASU and downtown. The airport is an intermediate stop.

    "5:40 p.m. CST Sunday: Interstate 40 is now closed in both directions from Albuquerque, New Mexico to Texola, Oklahoma, a distance of 390 miles."

    "4:30 p.m. CST Sunday: Snow drifts have reached near 10 feet tall in parts of the Texas Panhandle this afternoon.
    "

    Been right in the middle of something just like this more times than I care to count.

    I was there once for a conference. It was fun hiking Camelback and also running with Phoenix Frontrunners along the canals near the zoo. Never did see downtown. Local history museum in Scottsdale was cool.
