DPJ is teaming up with LightRailBlogger.com once again for the next installment of our “Explore Your Core: Light Rail” video series. This time we’re headed up to McDowell Station, home of the Phoenix Art Museum, Burton Barr Central Library and some tasty eat and drink spots.

We want to let you, the viewer, decide where we explore. So, what are some of your favorite destinations within walking distance of the light rail? Maybe you like hanging out in Cancer Survivors Park. Or, perhaps you can’t get enough of the shiny buffing at Los Olivos Hand Car Wash. You might enjoy a new relaxing weekend ritual at Giant Coffee. You tell us!

Leave a comment below informing us which places to include in our next video. Fire away!
