Located just to the east of Phoenix, Scottsdale is home to some of the city’s best restaurants, bars, hotels and attractions. I start of my travel in Scottsdale visiting downtown, otherwise known as “Old Town,” the very walkable central part of the city full of small shops and a booming restaurant scene. It is also here that the city’s roots can be traced back to the original farmers and settlers that called this otherwise barren part of the desert home back in the early 1900’s. I then head east into Tonto National Park to go kayaking down the Salt River with Arizona Outback Adventures (AOA), the area’s premiere outdoor adventure company. Next, I visit Taliesin West, the school/winter home of America’s most famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. Here I explore the unique structures and landscapes that make up Wright’s real-world laboratory for he and his students’ architectural ideas. Then I head back into nature with AOA to go hiking in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, a 30,000-acre preserve located just minutes from the city, and a perfect place to explore the unique landscape of the desert — even when the temperature exceeds 100 degrees. Last, I head inside and give a tour of my sweet pad at the Hotel Valley Ho, probably one of the coolest hotels I’ve ever stayed in. Harkening back to its Mid-Century roots, the hotel’s unique architecture and swanky rooms makes it one of the premiere places to rest your head while staying in Scottsdale.

    I like the video … In reference to the heat though. 100 degrees is absolutely nothing here. 115 + is what is terrible. Have you ever felt your new shoes melting on the pavement? Yeah, it gets that hot. This year has been pretty mild though.

    I'd like to go there but the chemtrails around in and around phoenix seem to be really extreme. Also tested the air on heavy metals in a lab and the amount of toxic heavy metals are 600.000 particles, while the "safe" limit by law is 100-2000 lol……..
