If you’re visiting Scottsdale—or even if you live there—you must check out Old Town. A part of Downtown Scottsdale, it’s historic, affluent, scenic, and overall a thrill to visit. Learn about the history of the Southwest and Scottsdale in one of the many museums, watch a ball game at the Scottsdale stadium, pick up some fantastic souvenirs in one of the many prime boutiques, view some lovely public art, and get a bite to eat at one of the many fabulous restaurants—Old Town has it all! Read on to learn more about the area and the many beautiful Old Town Scottsdale rentals available to you.
Like many downtowns, Old Town Scottsdale is a place where you can spend an afternoon, an evening, or an entire day without ever getting bored—all accessible by walking, and by the downtown trolley. If you have a day or two to spend on nothing but exploring (or shopping), this is where you want to be. Staying nearby in rentals in Old Town Scottsdale is a major perk, too—if you’re from out of state, you can save a major chunk of change by not renting a car, instead taking a short cab ride to Old Town and spending the day there!
Many locals visit Old Town for its fabulous restaurants—and there are too many of those to list here—but there’s plenty more, and those who don’t look around on all there is are missing out!
The Downtown Historic Walking Tour is a great place to start. It begins at the Scottsdale Historical Museum and points out important areas in Scottsdale’s history, full of curious stories about the past. It’s also a great way to spot places you might want to check out later! The Farmer’s Market is great to check out on Saturdays (October through May). A variety of museums can scratch any cultural itch you have, whether it’s at the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Fiesta Bowl Museum, or the Old Adobe Mission.
Plus, you’re within walking distance of the rest of Downtown—so no matter what, there’s something for everyone!
