Here are some of the most recommended attractions in Scottsdale.
Here's what Trippy members had to say about attractions:
"There is hiking on Piestewa Peak, also on Camelback Mountain (Echo Canyon Recreation Area, but parking there is difficult." See More
"Most of the nightlife (if you want the club scene) is all in Old Town Scottsdale." See More
"Cornish Pasty Co is one of our more distinct places around - very interesting menu, from Scottish eggs to curry pasties to the chocolate bread and butter pudding, which is one of the best dessert around." See More
"A bit North is Papago Park if you're into hiking." See More
"The first night we were heading to Tempe when our Lyft driver suggested Scottsdale instead, so we ended up at El Hefe Mexican Restaurant and walked around that area, ending the night at Maya Day and Nightclub where an EDM artist, Breathe Carolina, was playing a show." See More
"Phoenix is a dump (in that sense Chase Field represents it very well), but Taliesin West (the Frank Lloyd Wright house) about 45 minutes out of town is a worthwhile stop." See More
"There is no water available at Tom's Thumb Trailhead." See More
"Mastro's covers the high end, Shotgun Bettys is a great bar on the other end (even if you eat at Mastro's City Hall, would be worth stopping in for beers/drinks)." See More
"The golf courses are very cheap (TPC Scottsdale)." See More
"You can also stroll around McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park for free - it's a very pleasant place to hang out." See More
"Olive & Ivy has excellent flatbreads and a great location and patio as well." See More
"Also, Kierland Commons is a little downtown area with more great shopping." See More
