What to do, where to eat in Phoenix in Sept?

I'm coming into Phoenix, AZ for three days and two nights (Sept. 13-15), for work, staying near 1st Ave and Washington. Is there anything to do in town on those nights? And anywhere within easy walking distance I should go to eat?

Yuma short term housing

My daughter's going to be in Yuma AZ for a physicians assistant clinical rotation in January 2018 for five weeks, then will return there in mid-March for a second five-week rotation in women's health. Her husband, a native of Ecuador, will be with her. They both are fluent Spanish-speakers. We're brainstorming about housing options, from renting an unused vacation trailer to WWOOFing (he'd do the work part). Help us think about what might be possible, and what might make sense in that context.

Off the beaten path Arizona with an Aussie

What are your Arizona road trip can't miss spots, eats, attractions? Meeting up later this week with a friend from Oz for a weekish road trip - flying into PHX, then driving to: Holbrook (yes, we are sleeping in a wigwam), Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, back to PHX via Sedona, a couple days in Tucson and then back to PHX for departure. Not a lot of time in any one place sadly. Anything I shouldn't miss? Crazy difficult hikes are out, but gentle ones would be ok. Thanks for any amazing tips!

Relaxing getaway near Tucson?

I need a 1-3 night, relaxing getaway near Tucson, AZ. Anyone stayed in any quaint cabins or good value guest ranches/hotels/B&Bs no more than 5-6 hours from Tucson (or even somewhere within Tucson/surrounders)? I've considered everything from finding a discounted night at a fancy resort and spa to primitive camping on Forest Service land. Extra credit (but not required): pool/swimming hole/hot tub.
