The Destination It's always been a home-away-from-home for snowbirds, but over the last few years, Scottsdale has cemented its place as one of the West's trendiest resort towns. In addition to golf courses, spas, and what seems like one pool for every ten residents, this Sun Belt city just east of Phoenix now sports top-notch restaurants, galleries, and nightlife to put everybody, from tykes to seniors, in a sunny state of mind. Boasting a deep Native American history of the Hopi, Navajo, and Pueblo cultures—in addition to boasting iconic landmarks like the Grand Canyon, the ancient Petrified Forest, and the 225-million-year-old fossils of the Painted Desert—this Southwestern spot is in a league of its own. The Digs The best place to soak up Scottdale's 300 days of annual sun is at the Scottsdale Villa Mirage, an Adobe-style resort tucked away amid the scenic Sonoran desert. Spacious suites boast marble fireplaces, fully equipped kitchens, breezy balconies, and sumptuous queen-size beds to rejuvenate, while the Southwestern-style décor keeps things spicy with a dash of local flavor. Enjoy a relaxing morning at the spa before taking a dip in the shimmering pool or grilling up a sizzling lunch at the sun-splashed BBQ-area. Then take advantage of the full-service concierge assistance and book an outdoor adventure excursion to hike or bike the surrounding red-rock formations. The Diversions • Visit one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World: the Grand Canyon • Check out the resplendent colors of the Painted Desert • Take a Jeep tour through breathtaking mountain trails • Shop the upscale artistic boutiques of Old Scottsdale • Tour the sunken sculpture gardens at the Mesa Arts Center
Spacious Condo-Style Suites near Sonoran Preserve Nestled in a valley of the Sonoran Desert, Scottsdale's McDowell Sonoran Preserve makes up one of the world’s most ecologically diverse desert environments. More than 60 miles of trails wind past stunning red-rock formations and towering saguaro cacti that harbor exotic wildlife from collared peccary to quail. Located just 4 miles from the preserve's main trailhead, Scottsdale Villa Mirage also capitalizes on the surrounding desert beauty—not to mention the more than 300 days of sunshine the region enjoys annually. Buildings have been painted in a desert-sand beige, and palm trees and other flora provide shade on the property. Like a desert oasis, Scottsdale Villa Mirage welcomes travelers with a sparkling swimming pool, a spa, tennis courts, and attractively landscaped grounds. Each condo-style suite contains a kitchen with utensils, and dishwashers assist in one-bedroom units. Balconies or terraces extend beyond the eaves of Spanish-style tile roofs, offering places to soak up rays or shout orders for hamburgers to those folks grilling at the barbecue pit below. When it's too hot for an outdoor jog, feel free to work out in the resort’s air-conditioned fitness center. Scottsdale, Arizona: Stucco Mansions amid Rocky Desert Landscape Located just northeast of Phoenix in the Sonoran Desert, Scottsdale once served as ranch land where farmers grew oranges and lemons and cowboys kicked up dust in the fierce, dry heat. That era earned Scottsdale the nickname of “The West's Most Western Town.” Today, it is an affluent city landscaped with lush green grass and lined with stucco mansions. For a glimpse of the city's Old West roots, head to Old Town Scottsdale, where wooden boardwalks and hitching posts sit in front of a retro ice-cream parlor and rustic specialty shops. Upon arriving in Scottsdale, you know you're in the desert—cacti and tumbleweeds dot the landscape, and dry shrubs and gnarled trees cover the McDowell Mountains in the distance. To get a closer look at southwestern flora, head to the Desert Botanical Garden. There, themed trails wind past huge cacti and other moisture-hoarding succulents, best seen in the cooler early morning or twilight hours.
