Scottsdale has become the epicenter of outdoor promenades and upscale fashion in Arizona. Scottsdale Quarter, an open-air shopping complex, combines a bit of desert feel with a variety of popular stores and great local restaurants. This playground for shopaholics and kids alike offers everything from Papersource to West Elm (for adults) to Make Meaning and the Fountains (for kids).
With the shade and abundance of misters, its a haven from the heat during the summer months and perfect for a little people watching. During the springtime when our temperatures haven't reached their peak they host local music outside for lunch-goers and a variety of in-store events.
I tend to go for all of the restaurant options that include: TK's Urban Tavern, Dominick's Steakhouse, True Food Kitchen, Sol Mexican Cocina and more.
