The magic of Scottsdale begins with its setting in the heart of the lush Sonoran Desert. Here, indigo skies beckon you out of doors to explore pristine desert trails, rivers and mountains. Championship golf courses stand by to challenge your skills on artful layouts that wind around mammoth boulders and towering saguaros. Local spas tap into ancient Native American healing techniques to soothe your body and soul. And a vibrant downtown tempts you with world-class shopping, fine art galleries, renowned restaurants and high-energy nightlife.
