Whether you’re planning a family gathering or business retreat, there is plenty in Scottsdale for your group to enjoy. No matter how big your group is, there are plenty of activities that everyone will enjoy, whether it’s outdoor adventures or indoor activities.
The entire family will love a guided desert hike or ATV trek, or even a guided Segway tour through historic Scottsdale. Or round everyone up and head to McDonald’s Ranch for some old west fun! Horseback riding, stagecoach rides, hayrides and a petting zoo. They’re a great place to hold your family get-together. If you’re a family of railroad lovers and have kids in your group, put McCormick Stillman Railroad Park on your itinerary. This 30-acre park has trains to ride, a train museum, a restored carousel, and has been an area favorite since the mid-70s.
If you’ve been tasked with planning your company’s annual retreat – way to go on selecting Scottsdale! Your co-workers are going to love you! Part of your business retreat will probably be some sort of trust or bonding activity. Try taking your group rappelling, canyoneering or white water rafting. What an exciting way to assure 100% participation in this retreat activity! Everyone will be talking about this trip and its great team-building exercise for years to come.
Or, after a long day of retreat business and family time, maybe just relax and take in a spring training baseball game! Both the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks play at Talking Stick’s Salt River Fields. Beer & baseball, all in a gorgeous mountain setting; what better way is there to relax and get to know each other?
Is anyone in your group interested in botany or gardening or history of the desert? The Desert Botanical Gardens in nearby Phoenix has all that and more. Hike one of the trails with your group, take a guided tour, or attend a lecture or workshop.
Or, if your group is in need of a little cooling AC with their relaxing activities, pay a visit to one of Scottsdale’s area museums; The Western Spirit: Scottsdale Museum of the West, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art and the Musical Instrument Museum (in Phoenix) are just a few options.
With such a large group, you’re going to need lots of space. Don’t worry, our spacious 10-bedroom vacation rentals in Phoenix & Scottsdale have just what you’ll need to accommodate large gatherings. Open floor plans allow large groups to get together effortlessly, and the covered patios and porches are great options too. What meeting wouldn’t be better around a pool?
Most of our villas have pools and spas for a refreshing way to relax and have fun. And many have outdoor kitchens and grills too. Let the grill master in your group show off their skills and cook up some locally raised beef ribs or a couple of ribeye steaks. After a long day of business meetings or family outings, everyone will love to unwind and end the day gathered around the pool or the firepit, under the stars.
These villas have smaller, more intimate spaces too, for those times when your guests may need some private time (a must have for family outings). They’re perfect for those “break-out” sessions that are so popular at retreats, and for a little one-on-one time with your favorite family member. And, many of our 10-bedroom properties have multiple master suites, and most bedrooms share a bath with just one other bedroom.
