So all of this is wrong.
If you can afford to live in Scottsdale do so
15 mile park with free fishing, biking,.sports, and nature
Multiple spring training teams
Free public transportation
The mecca of restaurants and night life
Festivals all the time
Near immunity to housing devaluation
Excellent golf courses
Scottsdale is a destination for a reason
All the outdoor stuff and fantastic golf course mean nothing when it is over 100 degrees at 6am.
Scottdale is a snowbird destination for a reason.
Oh, and is also known as the d-bag capital of AZ...so have fun at those bars.
