There are numerous things in Scottsdale to do. Having an average of 300 days a year of sunshine makes for the perfect landscape for year round activities. Of course, in the summer if you’re doing something outside you want to start very early and plan to be done by 10:30am! There are many annual events that are a MUST DO if you’re here while they’re going on. Here’s a small list to think about: Barrett Jackson, Russo & Steele, Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show, Canal Convergence, Taco Festival, Fiesta Bowl, Arizona Bike Week, Country Thunder, Phoenix Lights, Ostrich Festival. Not to mention this is one of the few cities that has every major sport team covered including soccer and arena football. Check out Arizona Cardinals, Phoenix Suns, Arizona Coyotes, Arizona Diamondbacks, Phoenix Mercury, Phoenix Rising and Arizona Rattlers. Besides sports there are culinary festivals, wine tastings, charity events, beer festivals and more concerts than you could ever attend. During the summer there are three major pool parties every weekend with DJs and many beautiful people having a great time.
