A vibrant town just 25 minutes northeast of Phoenix, Scottsdale is best known for its year-round sunshine, world-class golf and rich arts and culture scene. Add in great outdoor activities and a relaxed, Old West atmosphere, and Scottsdale timeshares will provide you with the perfect vacation getaway.
Fascinating History and Culture
A good introduction to Scottsdale is a visit to the city’s eclectic downtown area. On the south side, you will find the charming Old Town, where you can hop on a trolley, ride a horse-drawn carriage or walk along the brick-paved streets to browse the wealth of turquoise jewelry stores, artisan shops, boutiques, bars and cafes portraying the city’s Southwestern heritage.
Just north of the Old Town is the Scottsdale Waterfront, a vibrant district of business complexes, museums, fine art galleries, restaurants and upscale shops, all clustered along the Arizona Canal with meandering paths garnished with palm trees, courtyards, art sculptures and fountains.
Scottsdale timeshares give you access to the downtown area, where you can experience the city’s many art and culture attractions. At the Scottsdale Historical Museum, learn how Scottsdale went from a struggling, arid town to a thriving tourist destination. Tour the Museum of the West, an architectural jewel showcasing the American West through artworks, artifacts, and storytelling videos.
Be sure to stroll through the Marshall Way Arts District, a paradise of modern art galleries. Nearby is the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, an impressive venue featuring international music, dance, theater, film and comedy.
Northeast of downtown, you can explore Taliesin West, the desert masterpiece of Frank Lloyd Wright’s winter home and current architecture school. Here, admire gardens and rooms that are all beautifully designed from local landscapes and organic materials.
A Sports Destination
Host of the PGA’s Waste Management Phoenix Open and the MLB Cactus League Spring Training, Scottsdale is a great place for sports enthusiasts.
