Things to Do in Scottsdale This Summer
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!
Free Things to Do in Scottsdale
Looking to stretch your summer vacay budget? It’s easy to do in Scottsdale where free activities run the gamut from Thursdays at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art and the weekly Scottsdale ArtWalk to Sunday-night concerts by local bands at McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park.
Things to Do at Night
Nighttime activities are a great way to beat the summer heat. After-hours happenings for families provide plenty of fun for all ages, like dive-in movies and night-vision desert tours. For adults, explore Public Art that glows after dark, sample the city’s best boozy milkshakes, or try your hand at billiards and arcade games at Scottsdale’s best bars with games. It’s all part of a night on the town in Scottsdale!
Memorial Day Events in Scottsdale
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.
