Weather

Local weather for the trip to Scottsdale vacation homes

Known as the Valley of the Sun, Scottsdale is famous for having over 300 days of sunshine each year. The best time to visit is between November and April, when when blue skies and balmy 70 degree temperatures dominate. The summer can get blisteringly hot, and regularly tops the 100 degree mark in August. Although, if you can bear it, you'll often find the widest choice of Scottsdale vacation rentals. December to March is the busiest time, when the city attracts the snowbirds looking for some winter warmth, and rentals can get snapped up quickly.

The Pinnacle Peak Trail in Pinnacle Peak Park is a good starting point for beginners. The 4-mile trail is lined with wildflowers and cacti, and leads to some scenic views across the plains.
