With 300 days of sunshine each year and winter temperatures hovering right around 70 degrees, Scottsdale has all the incentive I need to make a visit at least twice a year. This desert oasis lures travellers from far and wide with the best places to stay, eat, and play. And here’s why!
If you’re looking for the hottest Scottsdale resort, look no further than The Four Seasons Resort at Troon North. Out of the bustle of downtown Scottsdale, the Four Seasons is nestled in the boulders of Pinnacle Peak. It offers resort guests the tranquil opulence of nature at the peak of comfort and luxury.
If city life is more your speed, consider a trip to the Bespoke Inn, a four-room mash-up of boutique hotel and bed and breakfast. This charmer is located in the Arts District of Downtown Scottsdale. This inn is located close to all the great shops and galleries that Scottsdale has to offer.
Scottsdale is known for three things: baseball, golf, and stunning spas. And there’s plenty of all three to go around! Fifteen MLB teams conduct spring training in Arizona bringing in flocks of baseball fans throughout the season. If it’s your favorite pastime, consider taking in a game and hobnobbing with a few players.
If golf is more your speed, there are no shortage of courses to enjoy – including one owned by Phil Mickelson! Don’t just enjoy the game; take in the view! Pinnacle Peak and the Camelback Mountains make for a breathtaking experience!
And after all that play is done, don’t even think about skimping on the relaxation! Hit up a different kind of happy hour at the sap at Four Seasons Scottsdale! Enjoy a mini-treatment or go for the full pampering experience!
If after all the golf, baseball, and relaxation are done you still have time to soak in the sights, check out the Phoenix Art Museum. If you had adventure in mind, then plan a trip to the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. Spanning nearly 30,000 acres, the preserve offers a variety of outdoor activities including: hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, and more.
