Scottsdale is located in the Salt River Valley, or the “Valley of the Sun,” in the northern reaches of the Sonoran Desert. Immediately to the east and northeast of Scottsdale is the McDowell Mountain Range.

‘A Desert Miami South Beach’
The area is noted for its dry year-round climate and the stark beauty of the Sonoran Desert.
There are many cultural outlets in the city which has an active night life. The New York Times has described downtown Scottsdale as “a desert version of Miami’s South Beach” and as having “plenty of late night partying and a buzzing hotel scene.”
