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

Yea...in March.

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.

My office is in Scottsdale - It's probably the part of the metro I have the least interest in living in - serious hard pass for what I value

It is almost never 100 at 6 am - I walk my dogs in the morning on the greenbelt, and it is still nice.

Only a few months are hard to handle.

Idaho is the white supremacist capital of the USA - should we judge all of Idaho by that? Where Sanders, and where I live is far removed from Snotsdale. And the bars in our area aren't the ones you are condemning

Because of land needs and wanting to be in the valley, scottsdale is just soooo expensive. I've been looking at apache junction. Once you pass the meth capital and get into the outskirts its pretty damn awesome.

Oh no it's not. Idaho is one of the fastest growing areas of the country. If your talking about that wacko family in Northern Idaho that owns like 50000 acres and wanted to succeed from the union...that's like 40 people ..and quite frankly they mind their own business and you never hear about them. Im pretty sure their thing is more about wanting to be polygamists, and marry their underage cousins than it does with white supremacy.

I have never seen someone so eager to defend Scottsdale! It's a hot, overpriced, and and kinda like LA...for people that didn't make it in LA??

These things are facts:

It's uncomfortably hot for a majority of the year.

Scottsdale is massively overpriced...and besides desert hikes like camelback....all these outdoor activities you described are basically walking around a man made concrete hole in the ground they filled with irrigation water....at 115 plus degrees.

The valley has so much urban sprawl, they've probably upped the temp by 5 degrees with all the concrete...and you have to have a car...since public transportation in the valley is a joke!

Old Town Scottsdale is literally mocked constantly for the D Bag types that are their. You graduate from mill Ave to old Town bars once you get your ****** degree from ASU.

If anyone legit refute those things go ahead.
