Won the Grand Canyon/Phantom Ranch Lottery & doesn't want to go!

My friend won the lottery for a year from now, but is terrified of heights, and is too scared of riding a mule or walking down the path. I have tried to show how amazing, unique and once-in-a-lifetime this will be, but the fear might win out. I have tried to explain how adept mules are, even showing videos, but to now avail yet. She has 2 days to confirm.

What to do in Phoenix

I'm visiting a friend who is undergoing medical treatment at St. Josephs Hospital in Phoenix. It's a short trip. I'm flying in Friday, we are catching a Diamondbacks game Sat. night and I'm leaving the next day. Looking for recommendations on what to do on Saturday that doesn't involve being outdoors in 100 degrees. Maybe a good art museum or other indoor cultural spot? I'm not unfamiliar with the area but it's been about 10 years since I last visited. Not interested in shooting ranges or ATVs.

Fun in Flagstaff, non-Canyon

We are meeting up with friends next weekend now that we are all vaccinated, roughly halfway between us by car, and we decided on Flagstaff as the meeting point just because it's there and the weather is likely to be nice and none of us have ever been there. [more inside]

Moving from NYC to Tucson -- best guidebook?

A friend will be moving from NYC to Tucson soon and I'd like to get him a nice going-away present. He's never been to Arizona before (neither have I for that matter) so I was thinking some kind of insider's guide or similar book. I'm looking for recommendations from Arizona MeFites!

Tucson at Christmas with the family dog

My wife, two teen daughters and our dog are escaping Seattle this Christmas to (hopefully) enjoy some sunshine and short sleeve weather. We enjoy walking neighborhoods and hiking and hope to spend lots of time outside. I know the National Parks restrict dogs on trails- where can we go where Fido won’t be a problem? [more inside]
