Scottsdale is where hip trendy night life and luxury urban living meet historic Wild West. Billed The West’s Most Western Town today’s Scottsdale bears little resemblance to the farming and ranch operations first settled by Winfield Scott and other early residents. Many of the original settlers were educated and brought their appreciation for cultural activities to Scottsdale. The community quickly attracted artist, writers and architects including the famed Frank Lloyd Write who in 1937 established Taliesin West. Clean air, mild climate and sunshine drew health seekers looking for the ideal winter climate and promoted Scottsdale’s early area resorts.
Education, the arts, health and clean outdoor living continue to attract residents and visitors to Scottsdale every year. Pools, golf courses, tennis courts, hiking trails are just a few of the outdoor activities available year round.
Nothing embodies Scottsdale’s blend of hip and historic like Scottsdale’s Old Town. Trendy boutiques, contemporary art, museums, western souvenir shops, upscale dining and fun packed bars lines the streets and are within waling distance of many of the area’s top hotels. Not up for the walk? Numerous golf cart taxi’s patrol the streets moving guests from one establishment to the next.
