Downtown Scottsdale, also called Old Town, is the heartbeat of this expansive Southwestern city. This is where the city’s founder, Winfield Scott, kept his olive trees and farming operation at the end of the 19th century. Today, it remains the city’s centerpiece and the town’s only true walkable urban area with a nexus of hundreds of shops, restaurants, palm trees and parched mountain views. Here, you’ll find a nightclub district, dozens of art galleries and a wide range of boutique shops. If you plan to stay in Scottsdale, thinking about where your lodging is situated in relation to Old Town is a must.
