Most people think of Scottsdale as a winter getaway, but locals know the real fun happens in summer. If you’re looking for a great vacation that brings together all of the key elements of a good time, Arizona is the place to visit. Holiday Rental will make it even easier to choose this desert paradise by offering discounted rates on our collection of luxury vacation homes through mid-November. Right now is the perfect time to take advantage of this offer and spend time with family and friends in one of our exclusive estates.
Let’s explore a few of the reasons why Scottsdale is the place to be this summer.
Stay Refreshed With Pools and Waterways
With more sunny days than most states, spending time in the water is a given with Scottsdale vacation travel. The majority of Holiday Rental’s properties have enviable private pools, some with extraordinary views as well. You can soak in peace and quiet, away from the crowds. However, if you crave some adventure, Scottsdale has plenty of waterparks that can delight guests of all ages. Float in a lazy river, hit the waves, or race each other down the stories-high water slides. If you’d rather spend your time in a larger body of water, you can test your endurance paddle boarding on Salt River, or rent a kayak to travel along Verde River. There are many gentle lakes within a short drive from the Scottsdale region as well.
Feed Your Inner Foodie
When a frosty beverage and a great meal are what you seek, you’ll find some of the hottest spots with the coolest drinks right here in Scottsdale. The close proximity to the border lends itself to some amazingly spicy food featuring hot flavor makers like aji amarillo chiles, jalapenos, and chipotle. If heat isn’t what you crave, there are many other places featuring a variety of cuisines, from Thai, to Italian, to BBQ. Did we mention awesome cocktails? Diego Pops has the ultimate adult version a childhood favorite: The Snow Cone Margarita. Brew fans can cool off in more ways than one at the Goldmine Underground Tap & Barrel, one of Scottsdale’s many subterranean hangouts.
Hot Summer Nights on the Town
The temps get cooler at night in the desert, which is when the party really starts. Bars, dance venues, casinos, and more add to the excitement of Scottsdale vacation travel. Check out Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row and be part of the rock-and-roll crowd with live musical performances. If your tastes run more on the refined side, there are plenty of wine-tasting options as well as perfect places to spend a romantic evening.
Keep Cool Indoors
Take a break from the sun! Scottsdale has many indoor activities that beckon you for f
un in the shade. Spend a day in the desert exploring the oceans at Odysea Aquarium with its giant ocean tank filled with exotic marine life, including sharks. For a different kind of animal encounter, Butterfly Wonderland brings you up close with these majestic creatures, as well as honey bees (safely enclosed), stingrays, and reptiles. Artisans will appreciate Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West, Scottdale Museum of Contemporary Art, and Western Spirit, featuring Southwest culture. These are just a few of the many activities, shopping, and attractions that you can enjoy during your stay.
Venture to Parts Worth Exploring
Be sure to leave time for at least one or more day excursions to nearby regions. Take a scenic drive through the Sonora desert and witness the beauty of the landscape. Head about two hours away to Sedona, and witness the stunning red rock formations set against the backdrop of a clear blue sky. While you’re there, visit the town’s artisan alley with galleries, shops, and delicious dining choices. Jerome is another town worth the three-hour drive, especially if you love great arts and crafts, and spooky ghost stories. A bit farther out along historic Route 66, you’ll find yourself in Flagstaff, home to the Lowell Observatory and Museum.
Check Out the Special Events Schedule
Concerts, festivals, carnivals, and more dot the Scottdale events calendar every month of the year. From big-name entertainment to family friendly drive-in movies and ice cream socials, you’ll be able to partake in unique opportunities for fun. Be sure to check out what festivities are in place for summer holidays, including the Fourth of July. The city will be lighting up the sky with fireworks, while everyone chows on delicious slow-roasted BBQ of the Southwest.
