Getting Around Scottsdale: 7 Fun Ways to Trek Around Town

In the literal sense, transportation can be seen as simply a means to get from one point to the next. But it’s also a great way to explore some of the most exciting things Scottsdale has to offer. Here are 7 traditional and non-traditional transportation options for getting around Scottsdale - from limos and party bikes to golf cart taxis! 


Arizona Party Bike

Looking for a fun way to get around with a handful of friends and family? Take a pub crawl on the Arizona Party Bike! This 15-passenger merrymaking machine cruises around Old Town on pedal power (yours), making stops at three popular local bars and pubs. The bike comes complete with a rockin’ sound system and LED party lights. Very popular for bachelor and bachelorette parties!


Take a Ride


JoyRidesAZ Scottsdale Tours provides open-air vehicle transportation in Old Town Scottsdale and beyond, as well as a variety of guided experiences ranging from wine-tasting and culinary tours to gelato tours and an introduction to Old Town’s best Instagram walls. And if you like a good mystery, Puzzle Rides combines the fun of a treasure hunt with the challenge of an escape room on their 75-minute escapades through Old Town.


Rent An E-Bike

Pedego Scottsdale

As in, electric bike! Pedego Scottsdale, located in the heart of Old Town’s Fifth Avenue district, rents battery-powered bikes that let you do as much – or as little – pedaling as you’d like while you explore the local galleries, restaurants, shops and museums. Over at Rides N Motion, you can rent electric bikes, as well as two-wheeled Phat electric scooters.


Segway Tours

They’ll have you rolling through Old Town in no time! And if you'd like to take the Segway fun off-road, Adventures Out West offers guides tours that take you off the beaten path to experience the beauty of the Sonoran Desert.
