The city limits of Phoenix, Arizona are home to other attractions besides those downtown. One of these destinations is the city within a city of Scottsdale, a community proclaimed to be the “West’s Most Modern Town”. The sunny weather and relaxing atmosphere of Scottsdale make it a great place to look for real estate and homes for sale. The Scottsdale Fashion Square holds great appeal for shoppers, offering boutiques, restaurants, and the chance to steal a look at one of the many visiting celebrities. Golfing and jogging enthusiasts will not be disappointed by the many courses and tracks in the Scottsdale area, including nearly fifty eighteen hole golf courses and four major jogging tracks that are all connected by the Indian Wash Greenbelt.
The rich culture of Arizona and the Scottsdale area are preserved at the Kerr Cultural Center, an attraction filled with chamber music performances and concerts, and McCormick Stillman Railroad Park, home to everything from a carousel to train exhibits. Prospective cowboys and cowgirls can enjoy the Parada Del Sol; or Parade of the Sun rodeo, where professionals meet to compete and show off their skills for the crowds. Art aficionados should look forward to the Scottsdale ArtWalk and the Scottsdale Art Festival, as well as the Scottsdale Public Art shows. Some other attractions include the Scottsdale Culinary Festival, the Cactus League of minor league baseball, Frank Lloyd Wright architecture, and a massive car auction.
