About Scottsdale Arizona

Scottsdale has been designated the Most Livable City, one of America’s resort destinations of choice for fun in the sun, fine shopping, and even finer dining. With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, Scottsdale is the perfect playground to indulge in your favorite adventure – or even discover a new one. Reach new heights with a hot air balloon ride. Or see the beauty of the Sonoran Desert up close with a morning hike in the McDowell Mountain foothills and watch the desert come alive around you. Want more? Float down the cool waters of the Salt River on a raft, dive into the crystal blue waters of a hotel or resort pool, and enjoy time on Saguaro Lake, boating, jet skiing, fishing or just sitting back and enjoying the beautiful view.

Map of Scottsdale

U.S. Army Chaplain Winfield Scott paid $2.50 an acre for a 640 acre section of land in what is now Scottsdale. In December, 1888, Scott’s brother, George Washington Scott, became the first resident of the future town. By February, 1889, he had cleared the land, dug irrigation ditches, and planted 80 acres of barley, a 20-acre vineyard, and a seven-acre citrus orchard. Upon his retirement from the Army in 1893, Winfield Scott returned to area to join his brother. Future crops planted by Winfield Scott included citrus and other fruits, peanuts, and sweet potatoes.. In the Native American culture, south stands as a time of innocence, learning, and growth. In contrast, the west, with the approach of the sunset, reminds us of the wisdom of maturity. Where these two directions meet is Scottsdale, anew city with an old soul. This contemporary center is built on three, rich cultures: Native American, Spanish, and western pioneer. Each society left its imprint. Each presence can be tasted in the foods served, experienced in the architecture built, and appreciated in the art displayed in galleries and public spaces. This is the spirit of Scottsdale. And it is yours to experience, any time you choose.

Scottsdale Arts & Culture

With more than 125 galleries and museums, the exciting downtown Scottsdale Art & Culture, Shopping Districts, a number of fine performing arts venues, and architectural wonders including Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West, Scottsdale is a year-round celebration of the arts. Collectors and admirers alike will enjoy the Scottsdale ArtWalk, a Thursday night tradition in which galleries stay open late and welcome the public to special exhibit openings and artist receptions. Those interested in Scottsdale’s cultural heritage won’t want to miss the world-renowned Heard Museum and the seasonal Native Trails Festivals. No matter what form of art or culture you crave, you’ll find it in Scottsdale. Join the celebration! Also, be sure to check out the Scottsdale Events page for the latest information on what to do in Scottsdale.

Scottsdale Dining

Sure,Scottsdale is located in the heart of the West. But, we’ve come a long way since cowboy coffee and beef jerky were considered haute cuisine. The colorful cultures that give this region its singular flavor have left an indelible mark on Scottsdale’s more than 600 restaurants. Here, the influences of Native American, Latin and Western-style cooking and ingredients have created a mouthwatering mélange of dishes accented by indigenous and international elements. Lately, even more exotic fare such as Asian-fusion has arrived on the scene, creating an endless menu of global dimensions. But don’t worry, if you’re craving a taste of the Old West, we can still whip up a mean charbroiled steak!

Scottsdale Nightlife

Some might think that sunset over the Sonoran Desert signals the end of the day in Scottsdale. On the contrary! The onset of evening signals denizens of the desert, and wildlife of a more sophisticated nature, to embark upon evening festivities. Here, nocturnal diversions such as hip clubs serving up progressive dance and salsa mix it up with other venues offering upscale downtime in cozy wine bars and bistros. In downtown Scottsdale alone, there are more than 30 nightspots, most of which are within walking distance of each other. The one constant, however, is that no matter how you prefer your evenings served – chilled or hot –Scottsdale delivers.

Scottsdale Golf

Recently named “America’s Best Place to Live for Golf” by the Robb Report, Scottsdale is home to nearly 200 area courses offering layouts that range from the rolling green fairways of traditional course architecture to the cactus-studded excitement of desert golf designs. Simply put, the combined quality and quantity of the area’s daily fee golf clubs and courses makes Scottsdale a “must-visit” destination for the serious golfer. And, if you’re here in January, be sure to take in some thrilling pro tournament action at The Phoenix Open, home to The Bird’s Nest, the wildest party stop on the PGA tour. So, come on out and bring your best game – the game’s best is waiting for you!

As a testament to this, the metropolitan area is home to nearly 190 golf courses – including several ranked among the most elite in the world by both players and leading golf publications.

In addition, the city hosts some of the game’s most popular competitive events, including the Phoenix Open, which draws consistently more spectators than any other golf event in the country. Scottsdale is also home to dozens of PGA, Senior PGA and LPGA Tour players, as well as the headquarters of many of the game’s leading golf schools.

The variety of available courses runs the gamut from thoroughly enjoyable classic golf environments to thrilling high stakes desert golf challenges capable of testing the skills of the game’s best players. And, they all benefit from Scottsdale’s inviting climate and inspiring natural beauty.

With such a diverse selection of courses, golf experiences and resort options, Scottsdale can easily accommodate the sensibilities and desires of any player. And, for the budget conscious, numerous value options are available throughout the year.

With a wealth of more than 600 restaurants that includes both award-winning eateries and off-the beaten-path gems, you’ll always have plenty of choices, whether you’re in the mood for a hearty steak or a new culinary delight.

Scottsdale pleases many tastes in the realm of entertainment, too. When it comes to live music, you can enjoy country western, rock or jazz in some of the hottest venues found anywhere.

Canadians snap up American homes 

The Associated Press

CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) – Two hours after his flight landed in Phoenix, Calgary resident Doug Farley already was cruising the city’s vast stuccoed suburbs in search of the one attraction Canadians can’t seem to get enough of these days, cheap homes. There are thousands of them here: almost new, unoccupied and dropping in value. The mortgage meltdown, combined with a surging Canadian currency, has Farley – and many of his countrymen – dreaming of winter golf on grass that’s always green.  “My dollar’s the same as your dollar, finally,” Farley said, grinning as he peered through a pool fence at a sparsely populated condominium complex in Chandler, a Phoenix suburb. For moderate-income Canadians like Farley, the race is on to take advantage of the “loonie,” which in September reached parity with the U.S. dollar for the first time since 1976. Many are combing the Internet for anxious American home sellers and looking with an investor’s eye at the condos they rented while on vacation in sunbelt states. “Now it’s more than just the snowbird coming down and staying in a condo. It’s people looking for business opportunity,” said Frank Nero, president of the Beacon Council, Miami-Dade County’s economic development arm in south Florida. Canadian condo-builder Solterra Group of Companies also is riding the surge in the Canadian economy as it plans to snatch large chunks of land in Las Vegas. Michael Bosa, the company’s vice president for development and acquisition, said the loonie has bolstered his company’s bids. “We’re looking now aggressively,” Bosa said. “We think we’ll see more opportunities in the next six to eight months.” In Arizona, Jason Sirockman of Edmonton, Alberta, said he watched as home owners flooded the market with 58,000 homes, more than twice the amount in 2005 when home values peaked. Now’s the time to buy, he said. Alberta, a three-and-a-half-hour flight from Phoenix, is experiencing a modern-day gold rush from booming work in its vast oil sands. “Fifteen of my friends are on buying trips down here, and we’re all cheap,” Sirockman said. He brought his family to Scottsdale this month while he submitted a lowball all-cash offer for a three-bedroom home. “I don’t want to take advantage of a guy who’s having trouble in the market and is losing his shorts,” Sirockman said. “But I have no problem with a guy from California who bought on spec and has five houses in Arizona and never lived in them.” Single family homes and condos in the Phoenix metro area now sit an average of 99 days before getting sold. That’s three times the wait for homes and four times the wait for condos compared with two years ago, according to the Arizona Regional Multiple Listing Service. The market has shifted totally in the buyer’s favor, especially those offering cash, said Jeff Russell of Alberta. Last month, Russell snapped up a patio home next to a golf course in Scottsdale with a $299,000 check. It was listed at $463,000. “I was actually going to come down here and buy a seven-series BMW because cars are ridiculously cheap here,” he said. “But I discovered that, forget cars, houses are on deep discount. I could never get anything on a golf course as nice in Canada for this type of money.” Real estate agents in Phoenix, especially those with Canadian ties, are hustling to reach potential buyers up north while the American housing market and the U.S. dollar continue to slump. “When I take them to a brand new subdivision, and for $210,000 can get them four bedrooms, 2,000 square feet, all appliances, brand new, that’s something they haven’t been able to buy in Canada for 10 or 15 years. In my opinion, everyone should be buying now.” Still, with so many homes on the market, the interest by Canadians isn’t about to fix the housing slump in Arizona, real estate consultant Elliott D. Pollack said. “You have a massive oversupply in the face of a lower demand,” Pollack said. “And you’re going to have to work off those excess units. And to do that you’ll need two or three years.” That’s fine with investors like Farley, who are still learning the neighborhoods. As he searched for his new winter home, Farley kept an eye out for condos near a pool. When it got cold in Calgary, that’s where his family would be. “I just want the ability to go outside, you know, the ability to go for a walk,” Farley said. He left for Calgary with a few strong choices, but he didn’t bid on anything. Sirockman also returned to Canada without a house after the owner of the Scottsdale home turned down his offer. No worries. Sirockman told the seller there were a thousand other homes like his on the market, and someone was going to deal. As he was about to get on the flight back to Edmonton, Sirockman called his friends, and they told him it’s 28 below zero back home. “That’s what I’m flying into,” he said with a sigh. “I brought a big down-filled jacket with me. I’m looking like an idiot getting onto the plane.” Call Brian Young Realtor – Canadian Vacation Homes, Canadian Second Home, Canada Relocation to Arizona, Canadian Scottsdale Golf Property, Canada to Scottsdale
