Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport welcomes over 100,000 passengers on a normal day. This can make for a very busy atmosphere.

So what can you do if you have to hang around for several hours waiting for your flight?
If you are traveling with children, check out one of the awesome play areas. Kids can unwind and play some video games instead of sitting in a chair getting restless. Grab a bite at Nathan’s hot dogs, Quiznos subs or California Pizza. Hudson Booksellers has a variety of books and magazines to browse through and pass some time. Choose a good one for the flight to keep the kids busy.
If you crave some good Mexican food, El Bravo can’t be beat. The salsa and chips are mouth watering and the stacked enchiladas are awesome. Great friendly service makes this a wonderful eatery.

For soups, salads and sandwiches check out the Paradise Bakery & Cafe. The “half combination” lets you decide what you want to eat. Salad and soup, salad and sandwich, or soup and sandwich. Roasted tomato is the soup du jour, but they add different specials daily. The baked goods are fresh daily and scrumptious. Grab a chocolate chip cookie or cinnamon roll for dessert.
