Things To Do in Scottsdale Phoenix Arizona
CopperWynd Resort and Club is located near a number of diverse places of interest and activities ranging from world-class golf at some of Scottsdale’s finest courses to horseback riding at Saguaro Lake. Plus, all of the spectacular attractions that make Arizona one of the most traveled vacation destinations in the United States lie within a scenic round trip from the Resort.
From the moment the sun rises over the Sonoran Desert until long after it sets, Scottsdale offers exciting options for things to see and do. Scottsdale is known for spas, golf courses and shopping centers, but without the Sonoran Desert, it’d be just another dot on the map. The Saguaro cactus is only found in the Sonoran Desert. To gain an appreciation for this landscape, visit the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. What seems to surprise people most is Scottsdale’s love for the arts. In 1985, Scottsdale began a citywide beautification effort that incorporated large public art pieces into city planning. The program has grown to 70 permanent and more than 20 temporary pieces of art that are spread throughout Scottsdale, with a large concentration in the downtown area. A walking tour through downtown is one of the best ways to see popular pieces like Robert Indiana’s iconic LOVE sculpture in the Scottsdale Civic Center Mall and Donald Lipski’s The Doors, a series of 28-foot-tall mirrored panels design to be a walk-in microscope. Visit the Scottsdale Convention & Visitors Bureau inside the Galleria Corporate Center, or the bureau’s kiosk inside Scottsdale Fashion Square, for a public art map and brochure.
