  • Within walking distance from State Farm Stadium and the Gila River Arena, Westgate Entertainment District is a great place to hang out for sports fans visiting for games or with friends and family...  more »
  • Westgate is pretty righteous. If you are looking for a meal, snack, romantic date, or dessert this is the place. Most weekend nights there is live music of all varieties and on weekends with no games you are very likely to find a bike night. If you want to just hang out and talk there is a 'grassy' area with tables and benches where you can enjoy you dessert! There are so many types of savory and sweet restaurants. I recommend the Yard House, there happy hour is a great deal and their food is superb.
  • The center of everything. Definitely a young happening place. Always busy, always fun. Tons of stuff to do and some of the best food around. You can come and just walk around. Good views and people to talk to. Tons of parking.
