One of the first things you notice upon your arrival in sunny Arizona (aside from the heat!) is the sheer beauty of our natural landscape. Colorful, tranquil, and exotic, this region of the United States is guaranteed to be different than any place you have ever visited, and when you stay in Scottsdale you are promised a million and one photo ops—especially after reading this guide on where to go to get the best views in Scottsdale! The sights you are about to see are so special you may want to bring the good camera instead of just relying on pics you take on your phone!

Tom’s Thumb Trailhead

Although hiking in the heat of summer may not be your best plan, when you visit in the fall, a hike along Tom’s Thumb Trailhead brings you to the spot with one of the best views in town! Access to the trailhead is available at 23015 North 128th Street, offering your choice in trail lengths (from .1 mile to 7.4 miles). Don’t forget to bring along plenty of water!

Taliesin West

Located at 12621 North Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard, the former home and school of famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright offers panoramic views of the Scottsdale landscape. Take a tour of the building designed by Wright and learn the history as you walk along trails that feature views of the city that will take your breath away.

Troon North Golf Club

Combine sightseeing and your favorite sport when you take some time to chase that dimpled white ball along the lush green grass of the award-winning Troon North Golf Club. Located at 10320 East Dynamite Boulevard, the chances of being slightly distracted are high, but it’s all good; just play another 18 holes!


Good food, delicious wines, and views of the valley that will take your mind off the meal: this is what you can expect when you enjoy a romantic dinner at Sassi! Located at 10455 E Pinnacle Peak Parkway, the incredible sunset pairs especially well with their Saffron Papadelle!
