Location highlights:

Scottsdale, Arizona is luxurious. It’s a known sanctuary for the rich and famous, home to more destination spas per capita than any other U.S. city. One of the top-rated art festivals and the former winter estate of Frank Lloyd Wright hint at the city’s cultural prowess. With a nickname like “The West’s Most Western Town” and a college where you can train to be a real cowboy, Scottsdale is also rugged. And when you set foot in the expansive Sonoran Desert – the most biologically diverse desert on the continent blanketed in desert brush, wildflowers and the iconic saguaro cactus – you’ll discover that Scottsdale is a desert unlike any you’ve ever imagined.

The Sonoran Desert is the wettest desert in the world. This unique characteristic supports some of the most diverse desert vegetation and animal species on Earth. There are even eight rivers and lakes that invite all types of water recreation. The vast expanse of mesa, brush and mountains is teeming with flora and fauna, including the iconic saguaro cactus that only grows in the Sonoran Desert. There are many memorable ways to explore this unparalleled ecosystem. Hike the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, Pinnacle Peak or, for advanced hikers, Camelback Mountain. Soar over the desert at sunrise or sunset in a hot-air balloon, go off-roading in a Jeep, travel on horseback or Segway, or kayak the Salt River. If you’re worried about the summer heat, book your tour for early morning and relax poolside the rest of the day. Fall, spring and winter are wonderfully mild.
