- Golf – We can’t talk about the best things to do in Scottsdale without mentioning golf as the number one experience of all. Have we mentioned our world-famous Unlimited Stay and Play golf packages? If not, now we have and you should take full advantage of this package when you stay with us. With seasoned golf professionals at the world’s finest golf location and numerous amenities, you won’t want to leave.

Other beautiful golf courses include Quintero, Troon North, and Las Sendas to name a few. We specialize in hosting golfing groups, so the more, the merrier.
- Wine – Need we say more? When discussing things to see in Scottsdale, AZ, the Scottsdale Wine Trail must be mentioned. Located in Old Town Scottsdale, it is the central hub for the state’s prominent and renowned vineyards and craft breweries. You can spend an afternoon or evening exploring everything they have to offer. During the month of March, the Scottsdale Wine Trail will be hosting Shamrocks & Shenanigans: Wine Scavenger Hunt featuring 5 wineries. Groups or individuals will have to solve puzzles and clues to win prizes.
- Art – Old Town is rich in art and culture, and that is something you won’t want to miss when you visit. The Scottsdale Museum of the West is one of the many gems of the desert celebrating historical moments and cultural artifacts. Authentic stories from the past, present, and future are brought to life through Western and Native American art. It takes about one to two hours to tour, with a collection of over 1400 examples of Old West cowboy gear topped off with a 3D illusion mural that places you in the middle of the action. Another art hub you won’t want to miss is the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art. Here, you’ll find unique and colorful pieces you won’t see anywhere else. Also known as the SMoCA, this museum is dedicated to contemporary pieces, architecture, and design. With upcoming and ongoing exhibitions, you’ll want to fit this trip into your schedule.
- Old Town – There’s no place like Old Town Scottsdale. Literally. Whether you’re shopping, dancing, drinking, touring, painting, biking, or all of the above, there is plenty to get into downtown. Catch a comedy show at the Comedy Spot Comedy Club or paint and sip in the Scottsdale Art District. The Scottsdale Fashion Square is where you’ll want to go to pick up vintage items or collector cars at the auction. Feed your appetite with quick three-hour taste tours of Scottsdale’s world-class cuisine with your choice of a Taco Tour, Progressive Dinner Tour, or a late afternoon trolley tour. However, if you’re looking for sophistication, you should visit the Scottsdale Waterfront, located in the heart of downtown. It boasts 1.1 million square feet of retail, office, restaurant, and high rise space.
We can’t forget to mention the hiking trails that are literally everywhere in Scottsdale. The beautiful landscape, desert trees, wildlife, and incredible views will leave you mesmerized.
