City of Scottsdale........Old West Meets Modern Changes

Posted: Jul. 10th, 2012  |  By Jessica

With its rich western cultural heritage the city of Scottsdale has become quite an impressive little town to visit. The city has grown over the years from a single dusty road with a few staggered buildings lining either side of the street, into one of the best vacation spots for anyone who loves to enjoy the warm weather that it offers. Some of the old wooden buildings of yesteryear are still in existence today. Year after year these buildings have been revamped and turned into an iconic strip.

The traditional old western style buildings still remain throughout the central part of downtown Scottsdale. Over the years new buildings have been added amongst the traditional buildings turning Scottsdale into a major vacation hotspot. The streets are lined with art galleries that favor the traditional western themed paintings or sculptures, jewelry stores that contain some of the finest turquoise pieces that were ever created by local Indian artisans. Adding to this mix you’ll find some very upscale boutiques where you can stumble across many hidden treasures to take home with you.

Throughout the year got the city of Scottsdale participates in many cultural as well as special events. Their ongoing stream of growth is constantly adding new and luxurious hotels, restaurants, spas and resorts. Don’t forget to bring your golf clubs with you because theScottsdalearea provides world class golf courses for you to enjoy.
