Scottsdale

Neighborhood of Phoenix, Arizona

Living in Scottsdale, Arizona

Scottsdale has quickly become one of the most popular areas of the Phoenix Arizona metro to move to. It’s also been given the title of one of the best places to live in Arizona. The historic and fun downtown area offers residents plenty to do; from art galleries, to plenty of nightlife, and great boutique shopping.

There is also the loved western aura that the city can’t help but showcase. In fact, Scottsdale motto is “The west’s most Western town” because everywhere you look the old western cowboy lifestyle is preserved in the architecture and landscape.

Things to know about Scottsdale

With a historic downtown and plenty to do, Scottsdale has become a great place for tourists to spend vacation time. While not everyone enjoys a tourist-filled town, this drives the city to maintain its beauty, which is great for residents too! 

 

What we love most about Scottsdale is that it’s a perfect place for so many different types of people with different interests. If you prefer watching sports and enjoying beers with your friends or would rather have a nice mimosa brunch with the ladies, or even would prefer a glass of vino while enjoying local artists at art galleries, Scottsdale has it all. And we can’t forget Scottsdale’s easy access to all of the great hikes in the Phoenix area!

 

Scottsdale is split up into North Scottsdale and South Scottsdale, with the southern side a bit more affordable. Many of housing options in Scottsdale are boutique apartments, townhomes and recently renovated single family homes.
