Thrilling adventureland or meditative muse – there are two ways to experience Scottsdale’s striking desertscapes. A land of inspirational scenery and a well-deserved reputation for luxury, it’s a rare example of a place that really does cater for everyone. Here you can pick and choose between your adventurous side or your inner bohemian. Where ultra-cool spas and cutting-edge museums encourage lingering. Where restaurants are well-equipped for both the indulgent or the virtuous. And where hotels are lux oases that make a hard day out getting your adrenaline or culture-kicks all the more rewarding.
Here we’ve curated the very best of Scottsdale’s two sides. Whether you want to soar, float, glide or spin your way across its cactus-peppered peaks and valleys on a desert adventure you’ll never forget, or recharge your batteries and get in touch with your zen side on a wellness retreat. The choice, is yours.
