Winter holidays in the Midwest or on the East Coast can be miserable with the freezing temperatures and feet of snow that happen each year. Try something a little different this year by spending your holiday in sunny Arizona. Scottsdale is a travel paradise with sunshine most days of the year and with some incredible Scottsdale attractions nearby.

Weather You Will Love

Stay warm this holiday season by spending some time in Scottsdale. Sure, we have all heard the rumors that the summer in Arizona can be brutal (it really is that not bad), but the winters feature beautiful weather full of sunshine and cool, crisp temperatures. The average temperature during the winter is around 72 degrees. Now you can spend Thanksgiving, Christmas, and even New Year’s Eve in shorts!

Plenty of Holiday Lights

Residents in Scottsdale sure do love their Christmas lights. There are tons of neighborhoods where homes are decked out in extravagant light shows. Local DJ Christ Birkett is one such person who hosts the Winter Wonderland Arizona, an elaborate Christmas light show with over 250,000 lights. The show opens up at the start of December and lasts throughout the month. Make sure to stop by between 6:00 PM and 10:00 PM for this unbelievable display. Another great holiday light show can be found at the Phoenix Zoo with their Zoolights exhibit. Plenty of holiday lights to go around!

More to Do Outside

With the weather being very temperate during the winter, you can spend plenty of time outdoors enjoying Scottsdale attractions. Camelback Mountain can be found in the city limits and gives you unprecedented views of the valley from the peak. Papago Park is another exciting hiking haven with plenty to see and hike around. Golfers will find the weather to be the most pleasant they have ever experienced for a quick round of 18 holes. Golf courses can be found all around Scottsdale, including the popular TPC Scottsdale course.

Plenty to Eat and Drink at These Scottsdale Attractions
