Yes, Scottsdale is the place to plan your next family vacation, reunion, or work retreat. Let’s explore some of the places where you’ll find fun in the Arizona sun.
Old Town Scottsdale
From the feel of the Old West to an upscale experience, this place has it all. Also known to locals as Downtown, you can spend a day or more just wandering through the various boutiques that line the streets, sampling delicious cuisines, and even taking in one of the many art galleries and exhibits scattered along the way. This is the ultimate culture mecca here in the Southwest that can’t be missed. If you crave adventure, tour the streets by bike or golf cart. There’s a Taste it Food Tour for culinary lovers. For people who are into the after hours scene, you won’t be disappointed with Old Town Scottsdale as it comes to life each night with lively bars and dance clubs to keep you hopping into the wee hours of the morning. You can even roll along with the Arizona Party Bike, a bar on wheels powered by you and others on this adventure.
An Ocean in the Desert
If you’re looking for a bevy of family attractions in one place, you’ll find it at OdySea in the Desert. The main feature of this entertainment complex is OdySea Aquarium, billed as the largest aquarium in the Southwest. See marine life in action in this state-of-the-art facility. Dolphin lovers will be in their glory with Dolphinaris Arizona where you can interact with and learn more about these intelligent marine mammals. If you prefer animals that flutter rather than swim, there’s Butterfly Wonderland, one of the largest conservatories of these delicate creatures. Of course, you can also go way, way back in time at Pangaea: Land of the Dinosaurs, which includes 50 life-sized animatronic replicas of the beasts that once roamed the earth. If your learning interest leans more toward two-legged beings, then check out Bodies Revealed, which explores the human body (in non-gross ways). These five venues, along with many other activities, shopping, and dining options make OdySea in the Desert a place for everyone to cool off and have fun.
Play where the pros play! TPC Scottsdale is the home of the annual Waste Management Phoenix Open, often referred to as the Greatest Show on Grass. The next tourney is at the end of January 2019. Between now and then, you can pretend you’re on the PGA circuit and play a round or three on these unbelievable greens. If the course is too busy, not to fret. You can find hundreds of courses around town.
There’s no ecosystem quite like the Sonoran Desert, and you’ll be close by to explore this stunning locale when you stay in Scottsdale. The McDowell Sonoran Preserve features trails to hike and bike, as well as a conservatory for more information about this region and the amazing wildlife and foliage found within. Guided tours are available for those who want to learn while on the move. Don’t miss the Desert Botanical Gardens either.
Discover what life was like in the Southwest in years gone by at the Museum of the West, where history and culture are on display. See paintings, explore exhibits, and learn more about the Western U.S.A. The Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art features rotating works of modern art to admire. Both centers are located in Old Town Scottsdale.
