A Splash of Southwest Flavor
The sunny Sonoran Desert has hiking trails laden with cacti and tumbleweeds. But if cute shops are more your family’s thing, you can trade in your hiking boots for cowboy boots as you check out Scottsdale’s downtown boutiques.
Whichever path you take, our nearby Scottsdale Resort is a great place to cool off from that desert sun. (It’s a dry heat.) Grab a seat with a view of the waterslide as your kids make a splash. Our resort is also near some of the world’s top golf courses, so even the pickiest of travelers can find their footing.
