Scottsdale Travel Tips


  • Forecasting Your Scottsdale Vacation

    Scottsdale offers warm conditions in winter, spring and fall that are ideal for golf. In the winter, temperatures climb into the high 60s, so you can tee off (or stroll the shops) when most of the country is cold. In the summer, your concierge can book a morning tee time to take advantage of the milder temperatures. There's very little rainfall in this part of the country, allowing a surplus of outdoor activity.
