Nestled in the heart of the Sonoran Desert, Scottsdale offers breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, boulder formations and hefty cacti. It is best known as a luxurious resort destination, and with over 200 golf courses, this city is a golfer's dream come true. For those who are not inclined to golf, the city is surrounded by scenic hiking trails and gondolas that are home to hot-air balloons. The nightlife, shopping and dining are all hip, happening and high-class here. Whatever you choose to do in Scottsdale (and there's a lot to choose from), make sure to wear sunscreen -- the sun blazes 325 days a year!
