Ask any native or local resident of Scottsdale and they will be quick to tell you the best time to visit is during the fall season. Arizona is known to be hot but the fall season in Scottsdale keeps those temperatures lower for an incredible time of year. Let the kids experience this for themselves with a fall break getaway to the Valley. Incredible activities and attractions await your family in Scottsdale during your Arizona vacation!
Explore the Sonoran Preserve
Just inside the Scottsdale city limits you will find the beautiful Sonoran Desert landscape. The fall season is the best time to explore this outdoor paradise as the cooler temperatures lets you stay outdoors all day long. Try your hand at horseback riding, guided hikes, Jeep tours, or even take a relaxing river float. The Sonoran Preserve is also stroller friendly, so families with young children can participate in the fun too.
Keep Cool in the OdySea Aquarium
One of the newest attractions found in Scottsdale is the OdySea Aquarium, a state-of-the-art facility where you can find many aquatic creatures swimming around. Thousands of sea creatures find their home here from sea turtles to exotic fish. In addition to the typical aquarium exhibits, OdySea also features an underwater ocean walking tour, 3D movies, and more. Don’t forget to have your kids bring their school IDs with them on the trip as OdySea occasionally runs student specials!
Just next door to OdySea you can find the Butterfly Wonderland, the largest butterfly pavilion in the entire country. You and your family will be surrounded by thousands of these colorful critters inside a vibrant rainforest atrium. Butterfly Wonderland also features additional exhibits such as the Flight of the Monarchs 3D movie, honeybee hives, and a stingray touch tank.
Get Your Treats at Sugar Bowl
While Scottsdale features a near unlimited number of delicious restaurants, there is something special to be found at Sugar Bowl.
