The holidays are our favorite time to travel, offering the benefit of a bonus day or two off work and the advantage of seeing how other sections of the world celebrate and travelers from all over the world often find their own personal journeys bringing them to the streets of Scottsdale. Our town is a blend of the old and the new, the sophisticated and the simple, and when you choose I Love Scottsdale for your holiday hideaway, you will also experience a blend of modern amenities and all the comforts of home! Celebrate Halloween and learn about its Hispanic equivalent Dia de los Muertos, which means day of the dead, but is nowhere near as macabre as that sounds. Feel thankful at Thanksgiving as you relax by the pool after your holiday meal and be even more thankful that your Christmas celebrations are not accompanied by freezing temperatures and a boatload of snow! This guide to our Scottsdale holiday rentals may be the catalyst for your newest holiday traditions.

Those 3-Day Escapes
Every year has a few three-day weekend holidays scattered throughout, serving as a much-needed break from the stress of real life. Martin Luther King Day in January and Labor Day in September are just a couple of examples, but periodically, a rogue holiday pops up in the equation. In 2022 for example, July 4th fell on a Monday and Veteran’s Day was on a Friday, doubling your chances to enjoy a three-day weekend in one of our holiday vacation rentals in Scottsdale, Arizona. Enjoy barbecues by the pool, firework displays from your backyard, and any variety of fun and whimsy during your weekend away from home. On cooler days you may find yourselves with club in hand on the artificial turf of a putting green, and on cooler nights soaking aching muscles in a hot tub may bring you joy. Outside kitchens or name-brand grills are perfect for an all-American barbecue, and as your children learn to swim during a fall escape to Scottsdale, everyone will have the time of their lives!
Spooktacular Halloween Escapes
Halloween is not a holiday in which we usually travel, but with the advent of fall breaks that can last as long as two weeks, it is moving up the ranks in the list of traveling holidays. Halloween is one of our favorite Arizona holidays, as it generally brings more than ghosts and goblins begging for treats, but it also is the unofficial start to cooler days! Gather around the firepit in the backyard, roasting marshmallows for s’mores and telling your scariest ghost stories after taking the kids trick or treating through your Scottsdale neighborhood. (The best candies are passed out here, so mom or dad will have plenty of Reese’s to enjoy after the littles have gone to bed!)
Count Your Blessings
It is hard not to feel blessed when enjoying this thankful holiday in the luxuriousness of our Thanksgiving vacation rentals in Arizona and Scottsdale. The dining room tables are guaranteed to offer enough seats for every seat in your traveling party, and double ovens, name-brand ranges, and super-sized refrigerators will ensure that cooking the family feast is fun again; not having grumpy Uncle Monty complain about the lumpy potatoes is another bonus to spending Thanksgiving in Scottsdale! The tryptophan effect of a big turkey meal often leads to naps in front of the television, but our smart TVs and high-definition televisions may amp up the excitement factor of watching the big game, interfering in your snoozing process! And when it is time for Black Friday shopping, high-speed internet will allow for as much online shopping as your bank account to handle, while many stores and shops in the area will be offering those deals you can’t resist.
Festive and Bright
Unless you decide to take a road trip to Flagstaff, there will be no white Christmas for guests spending the holiday with us, but somehow, we don’t think you will mind! Large living rooms will be the perfect spot to open all the brightly wrapped presents, Christmas cookies will taste so much better after being baked in ovens that don’t have quirks that burn one side and leave the other side practically raw, and mild temperatures will mean your eggnog will taste even better when sipped on the patio watching the sun set over the McDowell Mountains just beyond! And finally, your sugar plum dreams will be in high-def when comfortably snuggled under the silky soft linens of our premium mattresses that top every bed we offer in our Scottsdale holiday rentals.
New Year, New Traditions
The promise of the new year will seem even more brighter when enjoyed in our I Love Scottsdale escapes, and if you do decide to make some resolutions, be sure to add celebrate in Arizona to your list! Every property we offer promises to give your holiday celebrations a shinier edge. Reserve your favorite today!
