Planning Your Scottsdale Vacation

HomeAbout the AreaPlanning Your Scottsdale Vacation

Sometimes the hardest part of your annual vacation is all the planning involved, but I Love Scottsdale not only offers comfortable and luxurious homes for your relaxing pleasures, we also provide hints and tips for what to see while you are here, including this guide to planning your Scottsdale vacation!

Pack for Summer

Even in the middle of the winter months, with rare exceptions, the weather tends to be warm enough for short sleeves, and for particularly hardy individuals, even shorts and sandals! This is the Valley of the Sun, after all, and with over 330 days of sunshine every year, nearly every day feels like summer. Stock up on sunscreen, don’t forget your sunglasses, and if you don’t have your new swimsuit yet, NOW is the time to start shopping. Many of our homes offer private or community pools and hot tubs and although you can wait to buy a suit when you get here, it is always nice to be prepared!

Choose Your Scottsdale Vacation Theme

There are as many reasons for visiting Scottsdale as there are people traveling here, so deciding what TYPE of vacation you want to enjoy will help you stay busy and prevent wasting valuable minutes waffling between a nature vacation or one filled with arts and culture. Sports fans may want to plan a Spring Break escape, planning for when MLB’s Spring Training takes over the valley. The nature lovers in our midst will probably want to plan for a late fall, early winter getaway, knowing the weather won’t be too hot or too cold to get out there and hike. Artful escapes to the desert can be accomplished at any time, exploring the art galleries and museums that make Scottsdale a cultural icon!

Must-Sees in Scottsdale

We are often asked about the top sights to see during a Scottsdale vacation, and although we think you should try and see them all, there are a few things that stand out! A visit to Taliesin West is a must, the place where the famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright lived and taught. The Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center offers tours that will touch your heart. For those who really want to experience the Wild West, Arizona Cowboy Colleges offers an authentic cowboy experience that will thrill the entire family!

Plan Some Down Time

Every day will offer new adventures guaranteed to make you smile, but be sure to schedule some downtime, as you will want the opportunity to explore all the comfortable and luxurious amenities our homes have to offer. Reserve your favorite today!
