Things to Do & Places to Go

When we think of Scottsdale we think luxury resorts, endless golf courses and a fabulous array of culinary delights. While that is true, it also offers the beauty of the Sonoran Desert and endless opportunities for outdoor adventures.

I have compiled a list of some of my favorite places, activities and adventures. While this list is only a sampling of what you will find in Scottsdale and the surrounding areas. I hope it also, gives you a glimpse of me and you find that I would be the perfect dinner date, companion or adventure partner for you.
