Top Reasons to Move to Scottsdale
If you’re considering moving to Scottsdale, you’re in good company! Its mild winters and leisurely upscale vibe are a big draw, but our gorgeous little corner of the desert is much more than just a great place to settle down.
From a sophisticated art scene to stunning nature preserves to world-class golf courses, Scottsdale is a playground for those who also love to get up and go! Want to know more? Let’s look at some of the very top reasons you should move to Scottsdale.
You’ll Love the Culinary Scene Here
Want to be the envy of foodies all over the southwest? Head to FnB to enjoy some mind-blowing dishes from Charleen Badman (James Beard winner for Best Chef of the Southwest in 2019). Paired with a brilliantly curated wine menu courtesy of Pavle Milic (James Beard nominee for Outstanding Beverage Program), you’ve got a gastronomical experience for the record books.
The Rusty Spur Saloon is the place to be for western charm! This officially registered historical landmark was constructed in 1921. After a few iterations and quite a few years, in 1951, it became the first bar in Scottsdale. Pony up for a cold beer, prickly pear margaritas, and a selection of fantastic bourbons with live country music every night of the week!
If you’re in the mood for fashionable, the sophisticated Asian/Mexican fusion creations at Sumomaya will have you snapping pics for Instagram faster than you can say tapas! Enjoy pre-dinner sake or craft cocktails, then feast on wagyu carne asada, al pastor pork pad thai, various ceviches, and a full sushi menu. You’re sure to leave stuffed and happy!
It’s a Great Place to Stay Healthy
With so many upscale resorts in the area, you can expect an equal number of spas offering relaxing massages, luxe facial treatments, and rejuvenating body wraps. But there are plenty of places in Scottsdale that take the notion of luxury spa service well outside the box to deliver genuinely unique wellness experiences.
For example, The Four Seasons North hotel offers guided group meditations, zen hikes, tai-chi, and aromatherapy experiences. Suppose you’d like to get even more holistic? In that case, The Second Nature Clinic offers Naturopathic and Ayurvedic treatments designed to enhance your health from the inside out.
Our Neighborhoods Are Full of Personality
Old Town claims the spot as the city’s most metropolitan area with hip restaurants and shopping within walking distance of some of the most sophisticated single-family homes and rental apartments in Scottsdale. Not only is it one of the most happening places to live, but surprisingly, Old Town is one of the most affordable.
For those who want to get in on Scottsdale’s next “it” spot, South Scottsdale is the place to be. While it’s still developing and growing, large-scale building and renewal projects ensure that property investments there are to pay off.
There’s no shortage of suburban oases with top-tier schools for families, either. Central Scottsdale, McCormick Ranch, and Gainey Ranch are home to excellent public schools, kid-friendly attractions, and plenty of green space for families to enjoy.
Finally, for those looking for a little more seclusion, you can’t beat Paradise Valley. Be prepared to shell out some serious dough for the luxury homes in the area, though. With celebs like Alice Cooper and Michael Phelps as your neighbors, privacy comes at a premium.

We hope you enjoy our city as much as we do! Once you fall under the region’s picturesque desert spell, we predict you’ll stay for good. See you around town!
