Considered by some to be a suburb of Phoenix, Scottsdale surprised everyone by creating its own identity. What began as an Indian agricultural area boomed into becoming a great example of western American style. That the great architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, made it his workshop and designed many of the city's building have given it a look and feel of modernity.
The Long and Narrow City
The layout of Scottsdale is long and narrow. It is bordered on the West by Phoenix and to the East by a protected Indian reservation. It originally ran into Tempe in the South and a famous ranch to its North which has now been incorporated and allowed the city to spread out some. In searching for your Scottsdale apartment, factor in the constant use of a car to get around town. Scottsdale is divided into four sections.
The Old Town area is the most historic area with old fashioned stores and streets. A dramatic revitalization is seeing many high-rises and offices buildings going up there.
South Scottsdale is home to the arts and is seeing itself re-invented as a trendy yet low key area. The Shea Corridor houses most of the resorts and upscale residential housing while North Scottsdale is the real boomtown. It's full of big estates, big office buildings and seems to constantly grow.
Even with the draw of Phoenix nearby, there is still plenty to see and do in Scottsdale. Talisin, Frank Lloyd Wright's summer place, is well worth visiting. There's a wonderful contemporary arts center and a thriving center for the arts as well. With incredible desert nearby, there is ample opportunity for hiking, nature walks not to mention lush golf courses and spas.
Shopping is extensive with all the high end department stores and boutiques well represented. Once in your Scottsdale apartment, you'll want to find all your favorite things to do and places to buy. It won't be hard!
With such a proximity to Mexico, expect and find great Mexican food, but you'll also find outposts from Beverly Hills like Mastro's Steakhouse where you'll see celebrities and get great food. Asia de Cuba combines elements of both Cuban and Asian food for an eclectic mix.
Nightlife in Scottsdale has been compared to Miami's South Beach area. It's lively and wild and the best clubs and bars will be found there as stand alones or in the many resort hotels. Wherever you find your Scottsdale apartment, you'll be close enough to some great bars. Go up to Camelback and check out Sanctuary or even check out E4. Living in Scottsdale is all about playing just as hard as you work.
