SCOTTSDALE, AZ - Craving for outdoor activities to do this summer? It is five best activities recommendations you can do if you live around Phoenix. For half of an hour drive to the northeast, you will arrive at the City of Scottsdale. From a hike to splish-splash on a river, here is the list we made for you.

  1. Sunrise Hikes
    If you love to hike, Scottsdale has Scottsdale's McDowell Sonoran Preserve that is located at 8175 E Evans Road #12817. The Sonoran Preserve offers the beauty of the Sonoran Desert that you can enjoy without the risk of overheating. Try the Bajada Nature Trail at Gateway Trailhead and Jane Rau Interpretive Trail at Brown's Ranch Trailhead with half a mile long and connected to longer trails if you want to step up the hike. Still, check the weather forecast before you go for a hike, and never do a hike when the temperature is over 90 degrees.
  2. Chill Morning Yoga
    Start your day with yoga at Well & Being Spa at Fairmont Scottsdale Princess at 7575 East Princess Drive. Join its FloatFit Fitness program that offers a paddleboard yoga class. You can also stay at the resort that also offers pools and a spa. You can also visit Sanctuary Resort and Spa at 5700 East McDonald Drive and Royal Palms Resort and Spa at 5200 E Camelback Road.
  3. Water Sports
    There are at least eight rivers and lakes around Scottsdale including Salt River, Verde River, Saguaro Lake, Bartlett Lake, Lake Pleasant, Canyon Lake, Apache Lake, and Roosevelt Lake. Water activities could be really beat the extreme summer heat. Enjoy kayaking, river rafting, and tubing around those locations.
  4. After dusk off-road
    Enjoy the Sonoran Desert after the sun went down with its desert landscape and its inhabitants including spot owls, coyotes, and other nocturnal creatures. Visit here for the list of off-road activities providers.
  5. Dinner and stargazing
    Take your family or friends for a gourmet dining set in the desert area of the Sonoran Desert away from city lights in the thick of saguaro. Cloth + Flame provides temporary venues and culinary experiences around the U.S. including Arizona. Visit here for more information about Cloth + Flame.
