Light Rail to the 3rd/Washington station, then walk two blocks to the
Downtown Phoenix is quite walkable, and while the aforementioned light
rail is one of the multiple public transit options, there are many
restaurants, bars, and attractions within easy walking distance,
including the splashy Cityscape
