Scottsdale Arizona River Running Guide

Weather for Scottsdale Arizona Forecast

Scottsdale, population 210,000, is one of the Southwest's premier resort destinations. This young, active and wealthy community borders Phoenix to the east and north. With more than 170 golf courses, 11,000 hotel rooms, and 500 restaurants, millions of people come to enjoy the spas and resorts in Scottsdale each year.

 

Scottsdale's popularity is well-deserved. The beautiful desert landscapes have inspired such people as architect Frank Lloyd Wright, who built an internationally admired winter retreat here at Taliesin West. Outdoors lovers will find hundreds of things to do along the Salt River, in the rocky city parks and neighboring mountains, or on ranches in and around the city. Hot air balloon rides, horseback tours, rafting, kayaking, and mountain climbing are all just minutes from Scottsdale.

 

There's plenty to do within the city limits as well. Luxury spas and resorts offer deluxe pampering among spectacular scenery. Old Town Scottsdale preserves the original flavor of this community, and is near plenty of shopping and dining venues, many featuring the Southwest cuisine the area is famous for.

 

Scottsdale begins to the east of downtown Phoenix and Sky Harbor International Airport, and continues north all the way to Cave Creek and Carefree. It is accessible from Highways 101 and 202
