There is something special about the warm summer season in Scottsdale, Arizona. While naysayers might tell you it is too hot, we beg to differ. There are some incredible attractions in Scottsdale that are best enjoyed during the summer season. Here are the best summer Scottsdale attractions to choose from:
Sunrise Hike at Camelback Mountain
It can be a little too hot during the day to enjoy the beautiful trails on Camelback Mountain so instead take the hike up during the morning hours. The views from the top of Camelback Mountain are truly magnificent, especially when the sun comes rising up from the distance. There are several trails of various difficulty levels to allow hikers of all skills to enjoy the mountain.
Ride Down One of the Many Rivers
You may not believe Scottsdale is nearby several rivers, but they really do exist. Younger visitors may enjoy a relaxing ride down the Salt River in a comfortable river tube. Those looking for more of the beautiful Arizona scenery will prefer a kayaking ride down the Verde River. The Sonoran Desert is amazing to see, especially around the Verde River, where the water brings life to the region.
Visit the OdySea Aquarium
One of the newest attractions found right in Scottsdale is the popular OdySea Aquarium. This local attraction is the largest aquarium in the Southwest and features 50 exhibits full of incredible marine species.
