Described as “a desert version of Miami’s South Beach” by the New York Times, one is in for a grand time in Scottsdale. This vibrant city located in the eastern part of the Maricopa County is flocked by millions of tourists annually and there are numerous reasons why. In fact, the tourism industry is Scottsdale’s top employer owning to 39% of the city’s workforce.
The city is definitely living up to its slogan which is the “West’s Most Western Town.” Simply head to Scottsdale’s downtown just as the sun sets and you will be greeted by an abundance of hip bars, lounges, sports grills and clubs. There are also live performances to enjoy at the performing arts center as well as concerts under the stars held at the Desert Botanical Garden.
Scottsdale is rich in experiences to offer. From winding rivers, mountains, valleys and hiking trails to amusement parks, zoos, and botanical gardens, there is always something for everyone’s interest. Moreover, there are luxurious golf courses and shopping centers, invigorating spas, a variety of restaurants offering delightful cuisines and a wide range of hotels that fit any budget.
Sitting amidst the majestic Sonoran Desert, it is no surprise that Scottsdale is a city so easily inspired. Thus, the arts and culture scene is thriving with its acclaimed museums and galleries, gorgeous architecture, public art works everywhere, and dozens of art related activities and art tours that can be explored by everyone of all ages.
If there is one place in Arizona whose social calendar never runs dry, it has got to be Scottsdale. Experience elite ball games during the Fiesta Bowl where both locals and tourists gather as one community in an exhilarating atmosphere. Other major events include the legendary Scottsdale Arabian Horseshow, the Arizona Fall League, the Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships, Zoo Lights, ArtFest, ArtWalk, The Polar Express and many others that would fill an amazing year.
