The Lure of Scottsdale

By: Steve Proski

Many years ago, settlers came to an arid and dry expanse of desert in the American Southwest. Many thought the area was inhospitable, it was too hot and too dry. If those people could see what evolved in that area they would be astounded. Scottsdale is a vital part of that once forsaken area that has developed into one of the world's most well-known vacation and resort destinations, as well as one of the world's most popular retirement areas. Scottsdale has become a world leader in luxury and is renowned for golf course communities and unique masterplanned complexes.

Scottsdale has more recently come to be known as a city of luxury.

With some of the most impressive homes and resorts in the state, Scottsdale has carved itself a niche out of the unyielding desert. More than 7 million people flocked to this desert retreat in the last year adding over 3 billion dollars to the local economy. One of the major drawing points of Scottsdale is the incredible golf facilities that are located throughout the city. In fact, Scottsdale was listed as "America's Best Place To Live For Golf" by the Robb Report in 2006.

Intertwined amongst the golf courses that set a lush green tone to this oasis in the desert, are some of the most inspired and beautiful homes in the nation. With great education nearby and a thriving economy, Scottsdale has asserted itself as one of the premier cities in America. With world-class shopping and high quality entertainment venues sprinkled throughout the city, Scottsdale is legendary for it's fantastic nightlife. All of the elements have combined to create an atmosphere that is unlike any other. A distinct "Old west" flavor is still evident in Scottsdale, and it is this rich history that has helped to form the basis of the new Scottsdale, a luxurious city with an exciting and dynamic future.
