With changing seasons Arizona temperature ranges so that it actually accommodates water skiing and snow skiing in the same day. On your trip there you can end up skidding through a December blizzard outside Flagstaff and see snow-covered pines rather than towering cacti. Arizona's diversity will blow your mind.
Scottsdale, named by the New York Times as "The Beverly Hills of the Desert" and by Travel Channel as one of the most luxurious destinations in the nation, is located in Maricopa County, Arizona. Scottsdale is internationally recognized and regarded as one of the most expensive and posh areas in the United States and a premiere tourist destination. Scottsdale, along with its neighbor Paradise Valley are the only two cities outside of California ranked in the top 10 markets for luxury home sales.
