Originally founded in the late 1800s as a farming community, Scottsdale, Arizona, has come a long way since its humble beginnings.

No longer “The West’s Most Western Town” (as coined in the 1950s), today’s Scottsdale is a sophisticated, vibrant city that welcomes more than 9.1 million visitors each year, and offers a huge array of exciting options for things to see and do.
