As you start planning that once in a lifetime vacation to beautiful Scottsdale, chances are your itinerary contains a long list of outdoor attractions you’ve been waiting to see your entire life. From Camelback Mountain to the Sonoran Desert and everything in between, the natural sights of our western town are a sight to behold. But don’t stop there! If you spend all of your trip outside, you’ll miss a lot of what makes our desert home so special. We want our guests to have a jam-packed and fun-filled western adventure, so we’ve created this guide to the top indoor Scottsdale attractions you will want to see during your vacation!

Ice Den Scottsdale, 9375 E Bell Road

One fact everyone knows about the desert is that summers can be hot, and when it’s time to cool down during your Scottsdale journey, the Ice Den offers public skating in an establishment that is the practice home to the Arizona Coyotes. Public skate hours are from noon until 2PM every day of the week and costs between $5 and $10 per person depending on age.

Kiwanis Wave Pool, 6111 S All America Way in Tempe

Many guests are surprised to learn that temperatures can get a little more than cool in the winter, but that doesn’t mean it’s necessary to avoid the pool. The Kiwanis Wave Pool is an indoor attraction that offers cool fun year-round; the waves make it feel as if you’ve found the ocean in a desert oasis!

Western Spirit: Scottsdale Museum of the West, 3830 N Marshall Way

This 43,000-square-foot museum that tells the story of the Wild West is an adventure you won’t soon forget. Featuring the art, artifacts, and culture of 19 western states (including Arizona, of course!), this fascinating museum may be worthy of more than one visit during your stay.

Scottsdale Fashion Square, 7014 E Camelback Road

Shopping malls are a trend that are rapidly fading from the American landscape, but in Scottsdale the tradition is live and thriving! Scottsdale Fashion Square is the 19th largest mall in the United States and is home to upscale shops and boutiques that include Armani, Gucci, and every woman’s fantasy store, Tiffany & Co. Spending a day walking the tile floors of this lush mall is no punishment and may end up being the highlight of your trip!
