Downtown and Old Town Scottsdale
Vibrant Downtown Scottsdale is the heart of the city. Its walkable neighborhoods are infused with award-winning restaurants, specialty shops and museums. The original downtown area, known as Old Town, has preserved the essence of quaint storefronts and a lively art community. Pristine older homes are complemented by newer luxury condo communities, attracting residents of all ages.
Retail paradise is found at the Fifth Avenue Shopping District and Scottsdale Fashion Square — both popular destinations for fashionistas. And many of the city's best restaurants can be found in the Downtown/Old Town area.
Downtown Scottsdale also provides the ideal setting for a host of farmer’s markets, festivals, block parties, and the famous ArtWalk. After the sun sets, downtown lights up with over 80 wine bars, lounges and dance clubs.
Among the area’s treasures is the historic Little Red Schoolhouse — the current home of the Scottsdale Historical Museum, whose permanent exhibits showcase the town’s rich history. Visitors can effortlessly explore the downtown area via the free Scottsdale Trolley, which travels to designated stops every 15 minutes.
