Explore All Scottsdale Offers or Simply Relax in the Arizona Sun

The rugged Sonoran Desert landscape, with the McDowell Mountains as a backdrop, provides a beautiful setting for explorations in arts and culture, outdoor adventures, savory cuisine, and trend-setting boutiques in Scottsdale, Arizona. Scottsdale is known as a mecca for art, upscale shopping, and challenging golf courses. With dozens of restaurants, lounges, and clubs, downtown Scottsdale delivers diverse and exciting nightlife options as well. Whether you're looking to hit the links or treat yourself to some of the finer things in life, in Scottsdale, options abound. We'll be staying at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort, just minutes from downtown, Scottsdale Fashion Square, and McCormick Ranch Golf Club's two championship courses. From here you can easily explore all that Scottsdale offers or simply relax at the resort and enjoy the spa or one of the resort's five pools as you soak in the Arizona sun.
