Hugh Downs, retired American broadcaster, television host and famous author, he’s best known as the anchor of 20/20 and the host of The Today Show. He was also announcer for the Tonight Show with Jack Parr. Among his many accolades, he is also the host of numerous game shows and talk shows. An avid airplane pilot, we are sure Hugh Downs appreciates the glorious weather in Scottsdale, Arizona. He must as he makes his home here in Paradise Valley. No, we won’t tell you where he lives because we respect the privacy of our celebrities. We know that when his two children, two grandchildren and three grandchildren visit that there are great things for children to do in the Phoenix Area like the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park.
If you or your kids happen to like trains, you won’t want to miss the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park grounds with restored railroad cars, engines, two old railway depots, model railroad layouts and a scale model railroad that takes visitors around the park. There’s also a 1929 carousel and a general store that sells lots of novelty train items.
