Located just eight miles east of downtown Phoenix, Scottsdale has grown from a one square mile collection of cattle ranches and farms into 185 square miles of cosmopolitan resort communitys with over 245,000 residents and an estimated six million visitors yearly. It has become internationally recognized as a high-class tourist destination, while maintaining its own identity and culture as “The West’s Most Western Town.” Set against the backdrop of the Sonoran Desert Scottsdale gives visitors and residents numerous opportunities for outdoor adventure in places like the McDowell Sonoran Preserve and McDowell Mountain Regional Park. While Scottsdale is in the middle of the Sonoran Desert, it is remarkably green due to greenbelts, parks, small fishing lakes, recreational complexes and playing fields. In addition there are many indoor activities as well. Arts enthusiasts will love the city’s more than 125 galleries, studios and museums. Scottsdale is one of the top destinations for art in the United States and attracts world-renowned artists to its galleries, museums and performing arts centers. The growing medical community includes the western campus of the Mayo Clinic, as well as Scottsdale Healthcare’s newly expanded Shea and Osborn campuses. Scottsdale also offers an incredible shopping experience at a multitude of beautiful complexes such as The Shops at Gainey Ranch, The Borgata, Kierland Commons and The Promenade, as well as the impressive mega-mall Scottsdale Fashion Square.
