Scottsdale is full of magnificent resorts. These resorts are architecturally interesting, have world-class golf, have great spas, restaurants, and shopping, and they are positioned to take advantage of the warm desert climate. Often the resorts offer experiences like cook-outs in the desert or jeep tours through the desert, or as we call it "four wheel driving."
For the next few days I am going to take you on a tour of the Scottsdale Fairmont Princess Resort and Spa. This photo is of the grand outside entrance lined with date palm trees.
