Sun-Drenched Scottsdale

With sun-drenched skies, world class accommodations, breathtaking desert beauty, Southwestern history, and outdoor recreation, Scottsdale has something to offer to everyone.

Whether you enjoy golf, tennis, swimming, hiking or horseback riding, outdoor recreation is a way of life in Scottsdale. Squaw Peak and Camelback Mountain offer all levels of trails for strenuous hikes or leisurely nature walks. Home to numerous golf courses, Scottsdale provides great choices for any player at any level. Jeep tours take you deep into the Sonoran Desert, where indigenous flora and fauna are identified by experienced guides.  

Located near Phoenix, this area also offers all the amenities of a growing metropolitan area, including many shopping, fine dining and entertainment opportunities. You won’t find better shopping than Scottsdale has to offer, from upscale to casual. Old Town Scottsdale, well-known as the art district, offers galleries, restaurants, boutiques and entertainment. The architecture and culture of Old Town paint a vivid picture of Scottdale’s western charm. You can also enjoy such diverse pleasures as professional baseball, symphony orchestras, a zoo and more than a dozen museums.

Within driving distance are such magnificent sights as the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, London Bridge at Lake Havasu City, the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest. You may even plan to take a day trip to Sedona, famous for its majestic Red Rocks and a variety of cultural and artistic events.

Located only minutes from downtown Scottsdale, Arizona and twelve miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, the DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Hotel Paradise Valley offers a warm welcome and a comfortable stay, in tranquil surroundings. Relax and recharge in the beautifully landscaped property, surrounded by lavish courtyards, cactus and tropical palm trees. Swim laps in one of the outdoor pools, work out in the health club or enjoy a game of tennis. Venture just steps from the hotel for great dining, nightlife and shopping, or visit the adjacent spa for a day of relaxation. The complimentary shuttle is great for exploring the local area. And your spacious guest room at this Paradise Valley resort offers impressive views from your private balcony or patio.

There were so many pearls that I want to bring home to my colleagues! It was inspiring to be with so many providers who care so deeply and passionately about women's health. Jessica Flinders, FNP, Rohnert Park, CA
