What makes Scottsdale so great?

What makes Scottsdale so great?

Known for its relaxing spas, high end resorts and spectacular golf courses, Scottsdale is an desert city located just east of Phoenix, Arizona. Situated close enough to Phoenix to enjoy “big city” amenities such as professional sports teams and an international airport, but far enough to give you a taste of a serene, desert landscape, Scottsdale has so much to offer!

Downtown’s “Old Town Scottsdale” has buildings from the 1920’s as well as 19th-century olive trees while farther north, scenic trails wind through the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, a 30,500 acre desert-scape of hills, rock formations and cacti.

If you are an architecture buff, Scottsdale has that too as architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s former winter home and studio, Taliesin West is located within Scottsdale’s 85260 zip code.

While certain areas of Scottsdale are quiet enough to hear the birds chirp, other areas of Scottsdale, such as Old Town, have quite the nightlife scene. This is especially true during the Spring months when Major League Baseball holds their Spring Training Camp, known as the Cactus League in various cities throughout the Valley of the Sun, including Scottsdale.

With big city amenities and a friendly, laid back, Old West vibe, Scottsdale is the go-to place for many vacationers and retirees alike. We believe that it is for these reasons and many more that Scottsdale has attracted the attention of many national news outlets and has recently been voted:

The Happiest City

The Best Place to Quarantine

The Best Place to Staycation

The Best Place to Retire

The Best Place in America to Find a Job (for the 2nd year in a row)
