Hello Scottsdale!

 Welcome to Scottsdale!

Welcome to Scottsdale!

In an effort to escape the endless rain in Seattle, David and I headed to the sun! We were able to pack in a ton of activities into a quick weekend trip to Scottsdale. Check out these highlights from our trip to Arizona.

 The newly renovated Copperwynd won't disappoint.

Where We Stayed

The Copperwynd Resort is a little bit out of town but worth the drive. We knew it was the weekend of one of the largest car auctions in the US so we chose to stay  away from the action. The resort was lovely and recently became part of the Kimpton Hotel family. All of the hotel’s public spaces have been recently renovated and they do not disappoint. The staff said the rooms are next and boy do they need it but, they are spacious with lovely views and a fireplace. We had a great stay and enjoyed the pool, spa, tennis courts, and even a star gazing event. Fun!

 David and I had so much fun exploring the dining options in Scottsdale.

In addition to relaxing by the pool, spa treatments and playing tennis at the resort, we found some fun activities around town that were great!
