It's that time of year again. After months of planning, research, and collecting the gems of our city, the Best of Phoenix 2013 issue has hit the stands.
This year, we take a journey into Phoenix's past to unearth the vintage beauty of our city.
The rap on this place is that nothing lasts -- buildings are torn down before there's time for mildew, restaurants come and go, and people never stay. But more and more, that's less true.
From Tovrea Castle to the Bikini Lounge, there's plenty of vintage Phoenix left to admire, and we've documented our favorites for you here in the pages of the 2013 Best of Phoenix®.
Don't forget to grab your copy on newsstands before they're gone!
