Slide 18 of 22

Scottsdale, AZ

Surrounded by the Sonoran Desert and the Camelback Mountains, arid Scottsdale is a great spot for hiking, biking and golf. For every canasta-playing retiree, there’s a vacationing spa-goer.

Stay: At the Boulders, guests can golf at the championship course surrounded by mountains, or take classes in rock climbing, mountain biking or desert hiking.

Eat: FnB’s chef-owner Charleen Badman serves veggie-driven small plates, like eggplant with sun gold tomatoes, peppers and currants; and baby bok choy with miso and hazelnuts.
