Ready for Some Fun in the Arizona Sun?

May 16, 2018 Vacation Rental Insider Travelers

Summer in Arizona is a time for spectacular activities that beckon people of all ages to participate. There are concerts to see, parks to visit, and water attractions for cool fun. Throughout the season, the festivities abound indoors and outdoors, allowing everyone to participate. Let’s review some of the many Summer Activities in Scottsdale that make this a perfect vacation destination.


Enjoy the Water

The lower Salt River to the east of Scottsdale offers a gentle waterway for rafting, tubing, and kayaking. You might even catch a glimpse of amazing wildlife, including horses that stroll along the banks. If summertime conjures up images of an old-fashioned swimming hole, why not take a side-trip two hours north to Valley Verde, where fresh streams create water paradises to take a refreshing dip. If your idea of an adrenaline rush is racing down a waterslide, there are a number of waterparks in Scottdale and Phoenix that will satisfy your need for slippery speed. For a real close encounter with intelligent aquatic mammals, visit Dolphinaris Arizona at OdySea of the Desert, where you can swim with dolphins.


For Your Listening Pleasure

Outdoor concerts are among the favorite Scottsdale Summer Events that draw locals and guests alike. Railroad Park features a weekly concert series from April 29 to July 1 with tribute bands covering Neil Diamond, Journey, Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, and more. The Kierland Commons features cover bands as well from April 21 to May 19. Big name entertainers take to the stage at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts and the Talking Stick Casino.


Major League Baseball Action

Take your guests out to the ballgame to see the Arizona Diamondbacks in action at Chase Field. You’ll be able to watch in air-conditioned comfort, with a retractable roof to prevent rainouts from getting you damp. Diehard MLB fans will delight in a tour of the facility, considered to be one of the most impressive in the league.


Take a Break Indoors

There’s plenty to do inside as well. Visiting museums is a great way to spend an afternoon and the Greater Phoenix area has many with free or low-cost admission. The Arizona State University Art Museum offers an impressive multi-media collection sure to amaze fine arts connoisseurs. The Children’s Museum of Phoenix has free Fridays from 5 pm to 9 pm. It’s perfect for kids who want to express their creative sides while the entire family has fun. There are several more museums to tour, featuring everything from art, to history, to sports memorabilia, and more. Lego fanatics will like the Legoland Discovery Center in Tempe, ripe with opportunities to build with the iconic blocks. If nature suits your style, the Butterfly Wonderland in Scottsdale will allow you to get up close with the gentle creatures. It’s located in the OdySea of the Desert, which is worthy of a day visit itself.
