An abundance of golf courses and spa resorts, Scottsdale is situated in a picturesque desert with hills, rock formations, and cacti. How about eating ripe olives straight from 19th century old trees? You can find them in Old Town downtown, home to 1920s buildings. Also in the area is Scottsdale Museum of the West, displaying frontier-themed art and artifacts to get a feel of life in America in the days of cowboys; think horses, cacti, bulls, and that whole rustic vibe. For a shopping experience with a nice view, head to Arizona Canal in the Waterfront. An interesting city for all ages, yeehaw!
