The Old Scottsdale area has done great restaurants and shops. They are all within walking distance. This is my third time and just love this area. The best hotel is the Hilton Garden Inn. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. They have a wonderful patio to go back and sit out before bed. The fire pits are wonderful!!!!!!!

T-shirt shops, turquoise jewelry and tourist traps. If we'd avoided it, we'd not have missed it. It was fun once but not nessisary a second time.

Okay so it's all about us tourists, but we were treated very nicely both times we visited the area. We especially like Jeff at The Cactus Hut! Enjoyed the beer and Mai Tais at Hulas. Everyone should visit at least once. Lots of Cubs fans and Midwest folks everywhere!!! We had great pizza at Grimaldis!!! Thank you Scottsdale!!!

Nice area in Scottsdale. Great for shopping and dining. Old town is comfortable for easy walking around Main Street (Art District) loaded with unique shops and has an art walk every Thursday. Well worth a visit. Area is very clean and parking is free.

This place is getting shabbier with time. If you need a cheap tshirt, hat or jewelry give it a visit. But there is really nothing special in these stores.

We've been visiting here for over 15 years. Spending an evening in old town Scottsdale is a must every time. It was more crowded this year than in prior years and Everyone was in baseball fan gear (Go Cubs).

Old Town is a peculiar place. There's lots of Southwester kitsch available, including a five foot tall bronze sculpture of a cowboy boot on a corner near a bunch of over-priced jewelry "galleries" selling gaudy turquoise and silver. There are also a lot of bro-ish bars and night clubs, if you're into the nightlife. That said, there are also some... More
