Scottsdale, Arizona Travel Guide
Hi Loveys!!! My husband and I have traveled to Scottsdale, AZ a few times in the last couple of years to visit his Grandmother who has rented a house there to escape the freezing NYC winter. I have absolutely fallen in love with the laid back culture & landscape out there and I had to share my favorite places with you!
Sanctuary Camelback Mountain – very peaceful and luxurious
W Scottsdale – lots of fun, more of a younger crowd
The Phoenician – very old world and elegant, more of an older crowd
The Boulders Resort & Spa – My personal favorite, the spa is amazing & the pool has the most amazing view of the boulders
The fitness scene is pretty big in Scottsdale, which made visiting there very easy to keep me on track with my routines! I absolutely LOVED running outside here because of the dry heat. It’s such a different experience running without feeling exhausted from the east coast humidity.
My favorite fitness classes:
There are also some AMAZING hiking trails! A few of my favs are:
