Best Known For


For a town founded in 1910 and rich in the Old West values, Scottsdale, Arizona is surprisingly also one of the fastest growing cosmopolitan cities in America. High-end shopping and swanky galleries are a stark contrast to the idyllic desert landscape complete with cacti, winding trails, and towering mountain ranges. While the simple old town spirit may be alive and well, you won't have to deal with simple old town accommodations. Vacation extravagantly by staying at a sprawling lavish ranch, golfing at world-renowned courses, and shopping at one of the biggest malls in the United States. And don't make the mistake of thinking that living lavishly means living boring. Scottsdale offers a number of outdoor adventure sports including biking and hiking trails, off-roading tours, kayaking, and horseback riding.
