Heading to Scottsdale for your bachelorette party and dreaming of capturing that perfect group photo? We're spilling the tea on where to find the best wall murals to snap your bachelorette party pics - and it's not where you might think. Just 25 minutes from downtown Scottsdale, nearby Gilbert, AZ is a lesser known hot spot for those Instagrammable wall murals everyone loves. The best part? These murals are located just minutes away from one another, meaning you and your bride squad can stop at all six murals in under an hour and still have plenty of time for a jam-packed afternoon celebrating the bride to be.
Now that the cat is out of the bag, let the mural-hopping fun begin! Fuel up for your day of photo-taking with brunch in downtown Gilbert's charming Heritage District (we love The Farmhouse Restaurant or Snooze), then use the list below to guide your bride squad from mural to mural. Not only will you get loads of adorable party pics, you'll also get to enjoy some amazing local artwork in the process.
PS - Want to make your photos even more epic? Book a tour with Photowalk Scottsdale. Their team of photographers will show you around to their favorite spots while snapping professional photos.
