While temperatures are dropping throughout much of the country, winter in Scottsdale, AZ brings consistent sunshine and warm days. With temperatures steadily hitting the upper 60s and 70s throughout the winter, Scottsdale is the perfect getaway for those looking to escape the cold in Scottsdale winter rentals.
Treat Yourself to a Warm Winter Getaway in Scottsdale
With close proximity to stunning natural features such as the Sonoran Desert, McDowell Mountains, Tonto National Forest, and Salt River, Scottsdale is surrounded by beauty. Opportunities for outdoor adventures on both land and water abound, even in the cooler winter months.
Winter is actually a great time to visit Scottsdale and the Valley of the Sun. The temps are mild, so you can enjoy hiking and riding mountain bikes and ATVs through the desert without the oftentimes brutal desert sun.
Things to Do in Scottsdale
Exciting events such as the Arabian Horse Show, the Scottsdale Fine Arts Expo and the Waste Management Open also occur in winter, providing activities and entertainment to suit a variety of interests. Spend part of your winter in Scottsdale, where you can enjoy convenient access to top rated golf courses, spas, and shopping!
If you are in town but missed the Waste Management Open, you can always play the Stadium Course at TPC Scottsdale yourself, or try Troon North’s Pinnacle and Monument Courses, or the Talking Stick Resort course for a premiere golfing experience.
In February, Scottsdale Western Week celebrates the culture, traditional art, crafts, and food of local area Native American tribes. This event is a must for anyone who appreciates the Old West and American Indian cultures and wants to immerse themselves in this interesting period of American history.
If you’re here during the winter months, you may be in time to attend some of the area’s annual holiday events. For the entire month of December during Scottsdazzle, all of Old Town turns into a holiday wonderland, with holiday-themed events for the entire family, Santa, a colorful Christmas tree, and more. Other popular holiday and light shows include the Phoenix Zoo’s ZooLights and Las Noches de las Luminarias at the Desert Botanical Gardens.
You can always spend a day or two in Old Town. Strolling through world-class art galleries, jewelry and antique shops, souvenir shops, and more is a wonderful way to spend your time in Scottsdale. Meander through this historic town center on your own, or take a guided tour of local architecture, Scottsdale’s amazing public art (including the iconic LOVE sculpture), food, wine, and craft beer. Stay for dinner in one of Old Town’s many restaurants and then head off to one of the local hot spots for fun ‘til the sun comes up.
The Western Spirit: Scottsdale Museum of the West and the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art are two other interesting ways to learn about the area’s history and culture. The Western and Native American exhibits at Western Spirit take you back in time to the days of pioneers and cowboys, whiskey saloons and the Pony Express, fur trappers and miners, and Native Americans. And the SMCA features modern and contemporary art from around the world, and its courtyard features an amazing James Turrell designed Skyspace (worth the visit just by itself).
