I hadn't been to Old Town Scottsdale in years, so I was very disappointed to find that most of the stores are no longer owned by native Arizonians. In fact, the similarity of the merchandise (particularly the jewelry), signage, and managers and staff in the...More

The retail shops and restaurants cater to most good things one may want to experience. The people are friendly, the streets are easy to walk, and the area is beautiful.

There is so much going on in Old Town Scottsdale. There is something for everyone. Plenty of restaurants, bars, shops, etc. we were there after all the Christmas decorations up. You could easily spend the entire day there.

A number of nice restaurants in old town. Our favorite is Rehab. Lots of antique and art galleries and parking can be a real challenge. If you have never been, worth parking and walking around. Lots of more interesting places nearby.
