Old Town Scottsdale, Arizona provides that perfect little taste of the Old West smack within the Downtown district of Scottsdale. With shops selling Western clothing, boots and hats and plenty of Western-themed bars, it’s a great place to visit and take in the sights. I especially love the little western details throughout the neighbourhood like the rodeo logos on the benches, wagon wheels and interesting street lights and signs.

Another great reason to visit is for the art. You can see 10 public pieces of art within a 60-minute walk around town. For more information, there is a walking tour map and list of the artists on display on the Scottsdale CVB website.

Thursday evenings is when Scottsdale holds it’s Art Walk. From 7 pm to 9 pm the many art galleries in town stay open late for public viewings.

Don’t forget about Scottsdale’s Food Truck Caravan which I wrote about in this article here – it’s open on Thursday night and provides the perfect end to your day of gallery hopping.

 If you are a regular visitor of the site you’ll know how much I love great looking buildings. One of which is the Old Adobe Mission located near the south end of Old Town Scottsdale.
