When you hear “Scottsdale”, you may think of fabulous golf courses, outstanding restaurants, and gorgeous hotels. Many people — whether they are locals or visitors — do not realize that the Old Town area in Downtown Scottsdale still has many historic buildings, just a short walk from the hotel. If you stop by the Visitor Center and ask the lovely concierges, they will give you an information packet that guides you to these historic spots.
