Though called old town, Scottsdale's Old Town is actually not so old, only a bit more than 50, and still when you walk down the streets you feel like you're in a Western movie, only the buildings look more modern, and not that dusty. :)

What makes this part of Arizona so special are the so many art galleries that can be found here. There are some that feature Native American art- ,and craft-work while others are based on contemporary modern art and paintings. There are also shops and restaurants selling unique, Scottsdale-like food. It is very delicious, worth trying out.

Scottsdale is a few miles from Phoenix but it is a place one should not miss out on. Who knows what might find there. :)

The galleries can be found on the Main Street.

How to get there:
For more info on the art galleries, visit the website.
