Arizona is a very unique destination as it has a great variety of things to offer and diverse landscapes to experience: from forests and mountains in the northern part, to desert and red rock formations in the south. Scottsdale is located in the breathtaking Sonoran Desert and offers a sophisticated urban lifestyle. Here you can experience everything from outdoor adventures like Jeep/ATV Tours, Rafting, Hiking, championship golf to upscale shopping and spa treatments, Scottsdale days can be as active or relaxed as you like. The historic part is Old town Scottsdale– with small local shops carrying Western, Mexican and Native American souvenirs and clothing. Getting to Scottsdale is easy, as it’s only 20 minutes from Phoenix International Airport served by 23 major airlines and nonstop flights from around the world. You can also split up your trip by staying on an authentic “Cowboy/Ranch” close to Scottsdale for a few days and then end your trip in one of the luxury resorts in Scottsdale. Another option would be a self-drive through Arizona, along famous Route 66, to the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas or Los Angeles.
Highlights in a Day: Start your day with an off-road Jeep Wrangler tour along rocky hills and explore the diverse desert ecosystems and native wildlife, for lunch you will enjoy wood-fire cooking with a rugged cowboy edge, in the afternoon it’s time to experience the Native American culture through a performance of music and dance, for dinner you will go on a culinary tour and be sampling some of the best cuisine in Downtown Scottsdale.
