Best Neighbourhood???

I’m in the preliminary stages of planning a week in the greater Phoenix area in February before heading to San Diego for another week. What areas are best for safety, dining, shopping etc. Any must see attractions?

IMO Central Phoenix where you'll have access Central and Camelback corridors and downtown. Next would be downtown Scottsdale which is convenient to the Zoo (but I'd save that for San Diego), Desert Botanical Gardens, Old Town shops and restaurants and Mill Avenue Tempe.

In a week you could do it all in town really and even go into N. Scottsdale and Cave Creek with a little driving from either of those areas.

The most recommended museums BTW are the Heard and the Musical Insruments.

The zoo in Phoenix is very good. Also the Musical Instrument Museum. The San Diego Zoo is currently the most expensive in the States at 54 dollars for general admission. There is like a 10%discount for seniors but it is not advertised and you have to request it.
