If you’re the outdoorsy type, you’ve come to the right place. Scottsdale’s year-round sunny weather, warm and arid climate, and many outdoor enthusiasts make it one of the most outgoing cities in the country. While golf may be the preference of many folks-and with more than 250 golf courses in the area, you can believe they’re satisfied-hiking and biking are all the rage in in the Valley of the Sun. With over 20 community parks and countless hiking trails, you can’t throw a walking stick or a bicycle wrench without hitting a foothill to bike, a desert mountain to climb, or an open range to explore.
But when it comes to outdoor activities, that’s just for starters. You could also take part in a wide variety of other outdoor recreation in Scottsdale, like horseback riding, hot-air balloon rides, desert Jeep tours, touring Sedona and Salt River Canyon, visiting the Phoenix Zoo, or taking in the Desert Botanical Gardens.
Whatever you’re into, there’s no use sitting around when you’re at The Scott Resort & Spa. So get out there and enjoy yourself at one of these many attractions:
- The Lost Dutchman State Park
- The Phoenix Zoo
- The Desert Botanical Gardens
