Scottsdale is Arizona’s center for upscale living and is commonly defined for its high quality of life. Often referred to as the “desert version of Miami’s South Beach,” Scottsdale has more than 70 resorts and hotels and ranks third in the entire United States (preceded only by New York City and Las Vegas) for its AAA Five-Start Diamond resorts.
Scottsdale’s quality of life, combined with its warm climate, have made it a popular destination for many residents looking to relocate and the increased effort of many upscale shopping centers, nightclubs, restaurants, and lounges continue to attract a younger and fashion-conscious crowd. As a result, Scottsdale continually ranks among the nation’s best luxury home sales.
Scottsdale’s attractions include Old Town Scottsdale, the Phoenix Open Golf Tournament, the Barrett-Jackson car auction, the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show, the Scottsdale Art Festival, and the Scottsdale Culinary Festival.
