Summer’s over, but that doesn’t mean you have to break out the parkas and snow shoes. As most of the country descends into an icy five months, Scottsdale hovers around the perfect line. With an average temperature of 83°F, there are so many reasons why forgetting the fall foliage and escaping to Scottsdale should be on the top of your list. Here are 16 of our top picks for fall:Like we mentioned before, 83°F is the average high. Enjoy exploring the Sonoran Desert, golfing, horseback riding, perusing downtown Scottsdale. Now that we think about it, golf alone is another reason why Scottsdale is fabulous in the fall. While other courses around the country are iced over, Scottsdale is as green as ever. Off-roading Segway tours. Why? Because taking something that a mall cop normally rides and throwing huge tires on it to run over rocks is awesome. Kierland Commons and Scottsdale Quarter are terrific outdoor malls located across the street from each other. Trendy shops and that unbelievable weather make these malls an awesome day or night activity. Scottsdale is home to some of the best resorts in the world. Sometimes the best vacations are spent at the resort…by the pool…drink in hand. Hot Air Balloons. Because you won’t believe just how vast of view you can get hovering over the desert. You can uncover our best-kept secrets… Sea planes. Yeah, bet you didn’t expect this one to be on the list. Picturesque restaurant patios. After a long day, the only way to unwind is with a meal in front of a fire pit with a nice, desert view in the background. Sunsets. (See here, here, and here) That ideal weather makes browsing all of our public art that much better. Sunrises. (See here and here) There are acres upon acres of land in Scottsdale’s McDowell Sonoran Preserve to explore, hike and bike. You can have one of the best breakfasts in the world at Bespoke Inn, Café & Bicycles. You get to see a Saguaro cactus in real life. You can go canyoneering with 360 Adventures, which is guaranteed to produce an Instagram worthy photo. Because are you really going to pass up 83°F? No, we didn’t think so.
