Scottsdale, Arizona is a large city, adjacent to Phoenix, where passion rules for residents and tourists alike.

Scottsdale’s Sonoran Desert opens the door to beautiful sunrises, and makes the way for hiking and other exciting adventures into an unpopulated “wilderness.”
Everyday in Scottsdale can be as full of activity or as laid back as you want to make it. Everyone’s passion flows in different ways, and you and yours can spend the day by the pool, find an outdoor adventure, go championship golfing, be pampered with luxurious spa treatments or enjoy upscale shopping.
When the sun sets, there is still plenty to do, including high class dining or finding your favorite happy hour and dancing ‘till the wee hours. In the downtown area alone, there are over 80 restaurants, and plenty of excellent clubs and lounges to enjoy the night life. The New York Times described downtown Scottsdale as “a desert version of Miami’s South Beach” and as having “plenty of late night partying and a buzzing hotel scene.
The Sonoran Desert, known as the most beautiful desert in the world, is magnificent, especially if you have never seen or been near a true desert. The cactus and other plants bloom during certain times of the year making the landscape one-of a kind. Huge rocks and the sand provide the back drop for this beautiful painting that is the desert.
The desert environment is what provides the dry atmosphere as opposed to the humid conditions on the coasts.
