Fall is coming up fast, meaning Scottsdale will start winding down to slightly lower temperatures and the cusp of the 2021 holiday season. However, that doesn’t mean your summer has to end without adventure. Feening for a trip to Arizona? Here are 7 things to experience when traveling to Scottsdale to close out your summer vacation!
#1: Camelback Mountain
If you need an outdoor nature fix while visiting Scottsdale, Camelback Mountain is a must. As one of the most popular (and challenging) hiking spots in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area, this location is perfect for sunrise views and a warm workout. With two trails to choose from plus the option of guided hikes for less-experienced hikers, Camelback is a great activity for visitors and locals alike.
#2: Butterfly Wonderland
Open all year round, this local Scottsdale Conservatory is the perfect blend of nature and butterfly wildlife. Coining itself “a rainforest experience”, guests are able to roam and marvel at different species of butterflies and rainforest animals. Butterfly Wonderland hosts multiple events throughout the months, operating at a mindful COVID-19 capacity. The month of August is full of events such as yoga, painting, and photography, giving visitors a range of group activities alongside the butterflies!
