In the heart of the Sonoran Desert is a luxury escape that is nothing short of magical – particularly during the holidays. Scottsdale, Arizona, welcomes merrymakers with boundless sunny skies, balmy winter temperatures and the warm glow of seasonal cheer at every turn.
The excitement begins in November with Canal Convergence, a 10-day festival in which you can immerse yourself in monumental works of interactive art, augmented reality experiences, live music and fire shows on Old Town’s historic Arizona Canal.
In December, the sparkle and shine of Scottsdazzle returns with a month-long celebration comprised of more than a dozen curated events, including a winemaker dinner, Gold Palette ArtWalk and tree lighting ceremony under the stars. And for the romantic at heart, few experiences compare to a stroll along the illuminated pathways of the Desert Botanical Garden during Las Noches de Las Luminarias, which in 2021 will feature lighted masterpieces by renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly.
When it’s time to relax and rejuvenate, Scottsdale’s acclaimed resorts surround you with luxury. Lodging options range from casita hideaways with stunning Sonoran Desert views to chic urban accommodations that put you in the center of the city’s vibrant dining, arts and cultural scene.
