How to Live Like a Local
Top Local Highlights
Scottsdale may seem like a small suburb, but it actually contains quite a few districts and sprawls north towards the Tonto National Forest. Most of Scottsdale's most exciting destinations, as well as the neighborhood of McCormick Ranch, can be found in Central Scottsdale. Northeastern Scottsdale, Scottsdale 85255, and Kierland all feature plenty of fabulous golf courses and shopping destinations.
Shopping & Dining
Plenty of upscale shopping and dining spots await in Scottsdale, which means you won't have to travel into Phoenix to experience tons of excitement. Some of the area's best retail destinations include Scottsdale Fashion Square and Kierland Commons. Scottsdale also has a blossoming culinary scene—if you want to sample the local flavors, we recommend Cafe Monarch, Olive & Ivy, or Roaring Fork.
Don't be fooled by Scottsdale's size—this suburb is home to a variety of stunning attractions, including Frank Lloyd Wright's former headquarters, Taliesin West. If you want to take in the desert beauty, try hiking through Camelback Mountain or hitting the links at a luxury golf course. Locals also love touring the OdySea Aquarium and the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art or attending a wine tasting at Carlson Creek Vineyard.
Scottsdale's residents enjoy easy access to Phoenix via highways and public transport, which makes it an ideal place for commuters to settle down. However, Scottsdale also has plenty of employment opportunities of its own, too. Some of the area's top employers include HonorHealth, Vanguard, the City of Scottsdale, Nationwide Insurance, and the Mayo Clinic.
