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. :)

Address:
The galleries can be found on the Main Street.

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

Phoenix Travel guide

If the heat gets too unbearable, you can cool down on the east side of town at the Big Surf water park. It is the perfect place for both families and singles where you can ride 5ft waves or go down waterslides into a giant freshwater lagoon. It is true that summers can get really hot and not everybody can stand the heat, but winter, when temperatures rarely drop below 65F, is preferred by many [...]
