REASONS TO VISIT SCOTTSDALE THIS SUMMER

You’ve probably heard that summer in Scottsdale is H-O-T hot. While this is true, it's a dry heat - so don’t let those triple digits deter you from booking your Scottsdale getaway this season. Need a little more convincing? Here are my top eight reasons why you should be here this summer

#1 POOLS, POOLS AND MORE POOLS

 

Scottsdale is swimming with pools. Literally. There are more than 120 hotel and resort pools to choose from in the Scottsdale area, so working on that summer tan is easy! Whether you're looking for the perfect poolside Instagram or a cool pool to lounge beside, Scottsdale has exactly what you need.

#2 RIVERS & LAKES

Believe it or not, there are still plenty of opportunities for you to explore Scottsdale's Sonoran Desert during the summertime…just do it from the water! Try paddle boarding down the Salt River, kayaking along the Verde River or exploring some of Arizona’s gorgeous lakes. You’ll stay cool while soaking up the sun and the Sonoran Desert scenery.

 

#3 COOL DRINKS & HOT RESTAURANTS

 

Scottsdale's restaurants are always cooking up something new, so this is one of my favorite topics. From cool drinks (it’s more than the temperature that makes these cocktails cool), and spicy foods that turn up the summer heat even higher, to happy hour musts, there are plenty of great opportunities to eat and drink your way through a Scottsdale heatwave.

#4 HOT RATES

 

Summer in Scottsdale always brings out some of the year's hottest resort rates. And what will you do with your extra cash? Tack on an extra night to your stay, rent a poolside cabana, enjoy a spa treatment (or two) - the options are practically endless, and you don’t want to miss out on any of them!

#5 NIGHTLIFE

 

 

Scottsdale has a little bit of everything when you’re looking for a night out. Whether you’re in the mood for a dive bar, nightclub, live music, wine bars or beer gardens Scottsdale has nightlife options for all types of party people.

#6 DAY TRIPS

 

Did someone say "road trip"? A mere two hours away (give or take) and 10 to 20 degrees cooler are some of our favorite Arizona landmarks and attractions. Explore the world-famous red rocks of Sedona, go forest bathing in Payson, or cruise along Route 66 and take in the sights of Flagstaff. You can even enjoy the cool depths of Kartchner Caverns, a breathtaking "living" cave that is home to Kubla Kahn, the tallest (at 58 feet) and most massive column formation in Arizona.
 

#7 COOL INDOOR ACTIVITIES

 

 

Being indoors during the summertime keeps you cool and comfy all day long. Luckily, Scottsdale offers plenty of indoor attractions from which to choose, including aquariums, museums and upscale shopping centers. Check out our top stay-cool attractions  and make your plans to beat the summer heat.
 

#8 SCOTTSDALE GOLF

 

 

Scottsdale is known as "The World's Finest Golf Destination," and it's easy to see why when you consider the city's roster of luxury resorts, 330 days of annual sunshine and high-caliber courses like TPC Scottsdale, Troon North and Grayhawk. Top it all off with stellar dining and nightlife scenes, exciting desert adventures and a boatload of top-notch attractions, and you'd be hard pressed to find a more welcoming place to enjoy the round of a lifetime.
