 We are located in north Scottsdale not far from the towns of Carefree and Cave Creek. There are amazing views of ancient rock formations known as the Boulders. Our area is called Terravita. It is a resort community with a large swimming heated swimming pool, spa  tennis,basketball, walking trails, a fitness center and a restaurant. There are many public golf courses in the area. There are many fine restaurants in Scottsdale and great shopping. Cave Creek was once a stage coach stop in the old west and the town is still looks like a cowboy movie. The sightseeing is wonderful in Arizona including the Grand Canyon National Park. We are across the road from the 4 star Waldorf-Astoria Boulders resort and the Golden Door Spa. Phoenix Airport serves the area. Some exchangers have enjoyed trips to Sedona, Flagstaff and Tucson. There are lots of hiking areas, mountain bike trails, and jeep tours. You can also rent horses for guided trail rides through the Sonoran desert. Scottsdale is known for art galleries, spring training for baseball, upscale casinos, and special activities throughout the winter season. Some special events are the Waste Management Open golf tournament, Barrett-Jackson auto auction, the annual Arabian Horse Show and the Parada del Sol rodeo as well as the Fiesta Bowl.
