A PERSONALIZED GUIDE TO SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA

Kindle Edition (191 pages)

A PERSONALIZED GUIDE TO SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA
 
Product Description:
The greater Phoenix region hosts hundreds of thousands of visitors and part-time residents every year, especially during the mild desert summer. Of all the cities and towns in the Salt River Valley where Phoenix is the main city, Scottsdale has developed its reputation as the premier playground and winter visitor center as well as being a major retirement community. With over 250,000 full-time residents, Scottsdale prides itself in its Western spirit and in its urban beauty. The city maintains a strong Southwest architectural flavor with its Old Town harkening back to the days of the Wild West. The city hold to strict zoning codes and forbids neon signs, billboards or any form of signage that extends above the roofline. The city also maintains an extensive system of parks, paramount among them is the 12-mile interlocking parks replete with lakes along the flood channel of the Indian Bend Wash. It is a haven for migratory waterfowl and even has resident hawks and eagles. And with its walking and bicycle trails, it is the perfect recreational center. The McDowell Mountains, which are within the city provide a wild desert sanctuary for public enjoyment. Of the major five-star resort hotels in the greater Phoenix area, most of them proudly have Scottsdale addresses.

This book is my personal guide to the enjoyment of Scottsdale whether you come for a few days or the entire winter season. It provides you with the finest in accommodation, dining and shopping recommendations based upon my 31-years as a resident combined with my local knowledge as a retired professor of geography and history. And among the many courses I taught at the University, my most popular was the Geography and History of Arizona and the Southwest. Unlike the big state guidebooks, this volume is dedicated to Scottsdale. But it also has great one-day or overnight trip recommendations for Sedona, Jerome, Prescott, Tucson and the Grand Canyon.

Welcome to Scottsdale, "The West's Most Western Town."
