We love Downtown Scottsdale and all there is to do. Whether you’re staying at the hotel or driving to Scottsdale from another part of the Valley, this is one of the most walkable, entertaining parts of town.
The area is known for its amazing restaurants and fun weekly events like the Food Truck Caravan, Old Town Farmers Market, and ArtWalk. You can hear some great music at Rockbar and The Rusty Spur, or catch a stand-up act at Stand Up Scottsdale or The Comedy Spot. Explore some of the best shopping in town, from Fashion Square and the Waterfront to funky vintage boutiques.
SMoCA is the place to see contemporary art and attend cool events like the popular Lit Lounge series. Lesser known but also interesting is the House of Broadcasting, a museum about radio and TV in Arizona. Take a glimpse into early Scottsdale history at one of the area’s oldest buildings, the Old Adobe Mission, built in 1933 and made of 6,000 adobe bricks.
Whether you’re looking for somewhere to grab a drink, enjoy local cuisine, or take in the arts scene, take a trip downtown. Walk, ride your bike, or take the free trolley. You won’t be disappointed!
