Located in the heart of Arizona’s magnificent Sonoran Desert, Scottsdale offers luxurious hotels and resorts, championship golf, pampering spas, outstanding recreational options and some of the most incredible seasonal packages you’ll find anywhere.
With more than 600 restaurants serving up regional and global specialties, Scottsdale is a foodie’s delight. And with 80 restaurants, bars and lounges conveniently located in the downtown core, the city’s nightlife is the happiest of happy hours.
The city also has more than 100 galleries, providing one of the most concentrated art collections in the United States. Its award-winning museums showcase everything from the Native American exhibitions at the Heard Museum culture to the talents of legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin West, where elegant structures are crafted out of indigenous desert materials.
Scottsdale is an outdoor adventurer’s paradise, where you can discover thousands of plants from around the world at the Desert Botanical Garden. When complete, the McDowell Sonoran Preserve will be the largest of its kind in the nation, with more than 60 miles of shared-use trails winding through 21,000 acres of the spectacular Sonoran Desert. The urban preserve’s gateway trailhead is a fantastic introduction to the region’s ecosystem and offers access to several of the Preserve’s 63+ miles of trails, including the interpretive Bajada Nature Trail.
