Scottsdale, Phoenix and Mesa are in what is often referred to as the Valley of the Sun. A collection of sophisticated cities in a desert oasis offering adventure, luxury day spas, upscale shopping and dining and a mecca for the serious golfer.
The area is home to resort and day spas, nearly 200 golf courses and great shopping at Biltmore Fashion Park, Fashion Square, South Bridge and the Scottsdale Waterfront. The Valley of the Sun is well known for its galleries and museums as well as delicious food and the Scottsdale Culinary Festival takes place every April or you can follow Mesa's 'Fresh Foodie Trail™' visiting farmers markets and organic or gourmet eateries along the way.
The Sonoran Desert and mountain ranges offer plenty of opportunities for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. At the McDowell Sonoran Preserve there are 60 miles of marked trails and also hiking opportunities at Camelback Mountain as well as Lost Dutchman State Park and Tonto National Forest. You'll see desert plants in the Sonoran Desert such as agave and the prickly pear as well as animals such as jackrabbits and cactus wrens.
