We all know that with fall comes the changes of the leaves and while Scottsdale is in the middle of a desert you can see some beautiful colors take place on a short day trip. Whether you rent a car, or you drove into town on your own, we’ve mapped out a pleasant scenic drive for you and your family. Head our on Hwy 87 this will bring you through the lower portion of Tonto National Forest. This national forest is excellent for beautiful desert scapes, but if you opt to stop for a midday hike, you’ll find that there are hidden waterfalls within this wooded area and most importantly, fall foliage!
As you make your way on Hwy 87 you’ll want to turn onto Hwy 260, towards Camp Verde, this halfway point is exceptional for a quick bite to eat at La Casita, a cute local restaurant fixing up some delicious Mexican food, your whole family is sure to find something they like! Once you’re ready to head home, all you have to do is hop on Hwy 17 and drive until you hit 101 Loop, which will bring you right back to our best luxury rentals Scottsdale AZ has to offer.
