How hot? Triple-digit, fry-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk, stick-your-head-in-the-freezer hot. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.

You see, when summer arrives in Scottsdale, all kinds of wonderful happens – resort rates dip into let’s-stay-another-night territory, celebrity DJs heat up the pool party scene, and local musicians jam under the stars. And that’s just the beginning.

Join us in Scottsdale and tell summer to Bring. It. On!

Dine Audaciously

Scottsdale summer dining is equal parts farm-fresh ingredients and bold, regional flavors. Here's the inside scoop on the season's best eats, from spicy favorites and clean summer eating to innovative cocktails and ice cream treats.

Celebrate Memorial Day Weekend

Even though Scottsdale's been toasty for weeks before Memorial Day rolls around, it's still the official kick-off to summer and we like to do it up right with throwback pool parties, culinary events, mermaid swims and more.

Make a Splash

The turquoise waters of Scottsdale's pools are the best places to beat the summer heat, and your choices are many - cool resort pools, sandy beaches and even Insta-worthy pools that are the perfect backdrop for stylish summer selfies.

Explore the Sonoran Desert

Call us crazy, but we still like to go outdoors in the summertime - and you will, too! Grab your water bottle and leave the A/C behind while you explore Scottsdale's abundant lakes and rivers, regional swimming holes and stargazing spots.
