Though this community is actually separate from Scottsdale, there is not clear division between to the two, so these communities just sort of seamlessly transition from one to the other. Paradise Valley is where you can find many high-dollar homes. Perhaps this is why some refer to it as the “Beverly Hills of the Southwest.” The luxury vibe of this area is complimented by the fact that there are twelve resorts. These resorts draw tourists to the area seeking a relaxing getaway in a beautiful desert ambiance.
Old Town, which sits on the original site of Scottsdale, is a great place to look for Scottsdale AZ homes for sale if you appreciate historic regions. Here art galleries, dining and shopping options are abundant, as is an excellent nightlife when the sun sets. In Old Town, Scottsdale AZ real estate options consist of residential lofts and apartments.
Cowboys, dusty trails and saloons may be hard to find in Scottsdale and Phoenix these days, but head just a bit further north and you’ll find the spirit of the Old West alive and kicking in Cave Creek. This small desert town offers great shopping, dining and gorgeous desert scenery in spades.
