About Scottsdale

Located in east Maricopa County, a part of the Greater Phoenix Area, lies a vibrant community with its own unique southwest flavor: Scottsdale, Arizona. The beauty of the Sonoran Desert can be seen in every direction beneath the ever-shining sun, serving as a hiking enthusiast's dream. In fact, the city offers 400 miles of hiking trails, including the celebrated Bajada Nature Trail which features educational information and interactive exhibits. If you’re looking to cool off, take a trip with the family to one of the city’s many waterparks, including the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess’ Sunset Beach Pool or the Westin Kierland’s FlowRider board sport simulator. As the sun begins to set, take a stroll through Old Town to enjoy local art installations and community history before stopping into one of the city’s many lauded local eateries like The Mission (authentic Mexican street food) or Virtù (Mediterranean). Then cap off the night under the stars on a local Wine Walkabout. No matter what you’re looking for, Scottsdale is an oasis for all.
