Why Scottsdale? Here are some of our favorite Scottsdale activities- social distancing approved.
Summers can be a great time to try out the courses you have always wanted to try, but the price or crowds have stopped you. Beat the heat and the crowds and schedule a 7:30 tee time at local Continental Golf Course, complimentary golf is included year-round with each reservation at Scottsdale Park Suites! Hone your skills this summer and leave the mulligans to your friends! Don’t want to hit the green outside? TopGolf Scottsdale is open where you can enjoy climate controlled hitting bays any time of the day!
Hiking may be another activity you save for winter, but it can be enjoyed year round! Lace up your boots and hit the trails early in the morning to enjoy the incredible views Scottsdale has to offer! Find trails for the novice or expert hiker at McDowell Sonoran Conservancy or Echo Canyon Park. Not interested in hiking? Visit Papago Park to climb the Hole in the Rock, a .3 miles climb with stairs for all skill levels including children and dogs. At Scottsdale Park Suites, our backyard is the Indian Bend Greenbelt. Enjoy 11 miles of paved trails. Perfect for walking, jogging, or biking. Take a break at one of the many parks available on the path.

In the mood to shop till you drop? Scottsdale has it all! Enjoy the large outdoor shopping centers such as Scottsdale Fashion Square or Kierland Commons, indulge your inner cowboy and head to the Firth Avenue Shops in downtown, or shop like a true local while wondering the streets of Old Town Scottsdale.
