The Scottsdale Civic Center

Visit the Scottsdale Civic Center sometime for some free fun checking out art and elaborate water features.

The Scottsdale Civic Center is one of my favorite places to go for a walk, and I have dragged friends and family alike to check it out many times over the years. There are several varieties of flowers and trees.

There are also several fountains, which are loud enough to tune out the city noise and be really relaxing.

There are several pieces of public art to check out as well.

You can even play chess (if you bring you own pieces) at one of the many tables in a secluded courtyard.

But best of all, it’s near Sugar Bowl ice cream shop, so after a long walk, you can cool off with a bowl of ice cream from the oldest ice cream shop in Scottsdale. Yum!

I'm from Phoenix. I feel like that means a lot. I don't live there anymore, but it will always be part of me. On a more cheesy note, I am a Phoenix. I rose from some serious ashes a few times.
