October in Scottsdale is about as perfect as a month can get. After the long and scorching heat of summer, the first taste of autumn coolness almost makes us giddy with joy! This is why we start planning our costumes the second fall clothing starts appearing in stores; knowing there is still a couple of months or more until the big event, we like to trick our minds into thinking the heat is ending soon! For those of you planning a vacation over Halloween, we’ve prepared this list of things to do in Scottsdale this time of the year so you can be prepared, too!
