Old Town Scottsdale
Old Town Scottsdale ranks among the Southwest’s top retail destinations, particularly for shoppers looking for Southwestern and Native American art and jewelry. The area is also home to the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Museum of the West, and the Scottsdale Historical Museum.

The Basics
Nowhere is Scottsdale’s Old West character more apparent than in Old Town, where you’ll still find hitching posts from back in the day. Learn more about the area’s colorful history as you explore Old Town on a Scottsdale walking, biking, or Segway tour. Alternatively, food tours take hungry travelers to several of the best eateries in the neighborhood, while art lovers and Instagrammers marvel at the many murals.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Old Town Scottsdale is a must for history fans, art buffs, and foodies.
  • Scottsdale weather can be hot and dry, particularly in summer—take a hat, sunscreen, and lots of water.

How to Get There
Old Town Scottsdale is walkable and served by a free trolley that circles the various districts. Several Valley Metro buses connect Old Town with the rest of the greater Phoenix area, and visitors with cars find plenty of parking.

When to Get There
The shops and restaurants of Old Town Scottsdale are open year-round. If you’re there in the summer, consider visiting in the evening, as daytime temperatures frequently top 100°F (38°C).
