Five of the Best Kept Secrets of Scottsdale

December 6, 2017

Exploring a new community can be fun, entertaining and definitely a highlight of any relocation experience… especially when you have some insight on the best-kept secrets of the area. Okay, so if you can keep this just between us, here are a few experiences that you simply can’t miss in the Scottsdale area:

Yoga with the Butterflies

I know, I know… what kind of crazy advice am I reading here? But stick with me, I won’t steer you wrong! Yoga with the Butterflies is simply that… a relaxing meditation in a very unique setting. Once a week, on Tuesday mornings, the Rainforest at the Butterfly Wonderland is transformed into a destination designed to connect breath with movement in a simply spectacular natural environment. Just imagine, as a spectrum of colorful butterflies glide around you, you are lead through a series of postures and techniques that will relax and renew your very soul. Pretty cool… right?

Free Dance Lessons at Handlebar J

Shake, rattle and roll… or waltz, two-step and line-dance your way over to one of Scottsdale’s iconic western dance locations. Slip on your dancing shoes, or should I say boots, and mosey on over to Handlebar J Restaurant & Saloon for complimentary Country dance lessons every Wednesday night. Whether you need a few pointers or simply want to enjoy some good music and get your dance on, Handlebars is the place to boot-scoot some boogie.

Flights & Bites at LDV Wine Gallery

Now you know we couldn’t get through a “best-of” list without there being wine involved! Every Thursday evening in the downtown Arts District, the Lawrence Dunham Vineyards Wine Galley offers the Flights & Bites event for $25 (plus tax) per person. The fee includes the LDV wine flight featuring four tastes or one glass of wine, plus four delicious food pairings courtesy of the Food Truck Caravan Catering culinary teams.

McDonald’s Rock ’n’ Roll Show

This one is for the car enthusiasts among us. Large car events don’t come along every day… but they do come around once a week at the McDonald’s Rock ’n’ Roll Show. Every Saturday evening from 4 to 8 p.m., the Talking Stick Pavilions parking lot is transformed into one of the longest-running car shows in the Valley of the Sun. You’ll experiences everything from classic beauties to restorations to the latest and greatest of the automobile world. Taking it further, and to set the appropriate mood, classic 50s-era music is piped throughout the area. So grab your best gal and head on over for a little past and maybe a step into the future.

Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West

Come on… if you just relocated to the North Scottsdale area, you better learn a little bit about its history or you’ll come off looking like a tenderfoot! This is one of the newer items on our top-five list, so it won’t be a well-kept secret for long due to its popularity among the locals and visitors to the area. Featuring five galleries filled with the pioneer spirit of the American West through the use of paintings, sculptures, cultural artifacts and interactive exhibits, the Museum of the West will walk you through historical facts with beauty and grace.

If the top-five best-kept secrets in Scottsdale didn’t help seal the deal for relocation to the Troon North community, simply take a look at Chateau Crest. This is a four-bedroom, six-bathroom estate on 1.15 acres that will be offered at a no-reserve auction on December 16, 2017. The property offers an abundance of amenities making it perfect to enjoy its prestigious location with its gourmet kitchen, en suite bedrooms, library, home theatre, game room, expansive outdoor space, negative-edge heated pool, six fireplaces, wine room, and four-and-a-half car garage.
