Scottsdale, Arizona

Described by the New York Times as “a desert version of Miami's South Beach,” Scottsdale is Arizona’s biggest hit. The city is rich in culture and natural grandeur. The Scottsdale Arts District lends to proud attractions of galleries, studios, and museums, while architectural majesties like Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West supplement the city’s Western heritage. Its position on the northern stretches of the Sonoran Desert and the McDowell Mountain Range makes the Scottsdale experience a spectacular one.

The City of Scottsdale

Like a hidden oasis in the desert, Scottsdale has a wide variety of attractions that cater to every interest and passion. Rich in history and culture, this "desert version of Miami's South Beach”, as the New York Times put it, is rich history and cultural past, which feed into the new, vibrant world and provide perfect balance for a truly unique city.

The 20th century would bring with it the beginnings of Scottsdale’s illustrious arts and culture scene. Artist Jessie Benton Evans allowed the Jokake Inn to be built on her property, which became a tearoom and guesthouse in the 1920s. The Inn now resides on the property of The Phoenician Resort and Hotel, which maintains a tea house of its own. Renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright established his winter home, Taliesin West, at the foot of the McDowell Mountains in 1937. Cosmetic extraordinaire Elizabeth Arden opened the Maine Chance Spa in 1940 as a getaway for local and international celebrities and royals.

In 1970, “America’s original art walk” was created in downtown Scottsdale and renamed the Scottsdale ArtWalk. Perhaps most laudably, the citizens of Scottsdale approved a sales tax in the 1990s that would fund the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. This act served to protect one-third of Scottsdale’s land.

Do & See in Scottsdale

Scottsdale is a hot spot for shopping, dining, history and entertainment. In accompaniment to upscale attractions, the Sonoran Desert creates an assortment of rugged outdoor activities.
Old Town Scottsdale
Old Town Scottsdale is perfect for a romantic evening stroll while window shopping, meeting a friend for lunch, getting in touch with your artsy side, and more. Old Town is also close to the Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall. Enjoy fine dining, wine bars, and other great attractions all in one location.
Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West
Scottsdale’s theme of bonding man and nature continues with the Taliesin West. Built by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1937, the desert escape served as Wright’s winter home. Make the trip to the foothills of the McDowell Mountains in the Sonoran Desert and discover one of Wright’s masterpieces. Both the Taliesin West’s indoor and outdoor spaces will impress.
Troon North Golf Club
Troon North Golf Course is championed as not only one of Scottsdale’s finest courses, but one of Arizona’s best as well. Such an acclaim is understandable as the club is designed by the British Open Champion Tom Weiskopf and also has perfect fairways and bent grass greens.
McDowell Sonoran Preserve
Geologically, the McDowell Sonoran Preserve is unlike any other in the Valley: forests of cacti, unique fauna, and rolling landscapes of mountains and hills all cohabit here. The preserve covers 27,800 acres of Scottsdale grounds. To avoid the heat, visit early in the morning or later in the day.

AZ on the Rocks
If you're seeking to beat the Sonoran heat but still want to climb the mountainside, head to AZ on the Rocks. As Arizona’s largest indoor climbing gym, the Rocks has walls nearly 30 feet high. Aside from just having fun, the Rocks also offers an opportunity to work on climbing techniques and learn the ropes. Children under 18 must have a signed waiver allowing them to climb.

Aside from a great selection of men's and women's clothes, they have an outdoor bar-restaurant area downstairs and an open-window sit-down one upstairs. Enjoy one of their house special cocktails before noshing on fish, steak, or chicken. Make sure you try their piña colada cake and ask for the dessert menu to be sung to you - it's a real treat!
