THE WORLD IS A BOOK, AND THOSE WHO DO NOT TRAVEL READ ONLY ONE PAGE. - ST. AUGUSTINE
We found Scottsdale to be the culinary, cocktail, and cacti capital of the West.
STAY IN SCOTTSDALE
The Hyatt Place Scottsdale/Old Town was in the perfect location - easy walking to everything! The rooms were clean, modern, and had separate living and sleeping areas. We enjoyed the convenience of the complimentary full breakfast each morning (think eggs and bacon - not just a couple stale pastries many places have) as well as the free wi-fi! The only downside was that they didn't have a fitness center onsite (yeah, we workout on vacay), BUT they did offer complimentary access to a nearby LA Fitness. We would totally stay here again during a future visit.

DINE IN SCOTTSDALE
There are a TON of great restaurants, bars, and lounges throughout Scottsdale, and we definitely didn't have time to try them all! I guess that leaves us an excuse to go back - which Ryan won't complain about. Check out a few of our favorites below!
3815 N Brown Avenue, Scottsdale
This spot is very romantic! We opted for the tableside gucamole, the Tecate skirt steak tacos, shrimp anticuchos, and some margaritas!
7135 E Camelback #125, Scottsdale
We watched the Cubs win the World Series here! In between drinks and cheers we munched on the crispy shrimp caesar salad!
Malee's Thai Bistro
7131 E Main Street, Scottsdale
We tried the Tom Ka Gai - which was fantastic! I genuinely hadn't been to a Thai restaurant before this, but would definitely go back.
Dierks Bentley's Whiskey Row
4420 N Saddlebag Trail, Scottsdale
If you like country music, you kind of HAVE to visit this spot. We enjoyed it so much that we visited it twice during our short stay. Cheers y'all!
PLAY IN SCOTTSDALE
With hiking, golf, horseback riding, and more at your fingertips, there are endless opportunities for adventure during your trip. We can't wait to try more activities in the future!
Arizona Food Tours
We had a blast on this tour - we did the Lunch Tour #2 - and felt so stuffed at the end! Our guide was great - definitely check it out!
Cave Creek Outfitters
31313 N 144th Street, Scottsdale
We opted for a 2 hour horseback ride through the desert trails and enjoyed a homemade BBQ meal with the staff after the ride!
Downtown Scottsdale Trolley
This FREE trolley is the perfect way to see all the downtown has to offer. I'd suggest doing the whole loop before picking where you want to jump off!
