Looking for somewhere new to visit in 2018?

Maybe you’re thinking Belize’s Caribbean coastline, or the historically elegant Cambridge, England, or the enchanting Belfast, Ireland.

These up-and-coming destinations made the Top 10 list of hot travel destinations for 2018 by the Evening Standard — along with right-in-your-own-backyard, Scottsdale, Arizona.

With so much to offer, like hiking, luxurious spas, and world-class shopping, it’s no wonder the Evening Standard decided to shine a light on our thriving, desertscape city.

Adventure is always nearby.

Scottsdale is renowned for its resorts and spas, complete with relaxing treatments to help you rejuvenate and escape your daily routine, even if just for an hour or two.

Sanctuary was listed as a favorite by the Evening Standard (and by Beyonce and Jay-Z) — but there are plenty of resorts to choose from, such as local favorites Joya Spa, Boulders Resort and Spa, and Well and Being Spa.

If it’s an outdoor adventure you’re after, Scottsdale has that, too.

Camelback Mountain offers incredible views and hiking. Or  you can test out your mountain biking skills in the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy. Or, why not view Native American rock art and ruins from the vantage point of a hot air balloon?

And, since Scottsdale is situated between the wilderness of the desert and an exciting urban metropolis, you’re sure to find world-class dining and shopping nearby, to round out your hometown excursions.

Scottsdale shopping is among the finest.

Unique and wonderful shops line the streets in Old Town Scottsdale. At the heart of the city’s historic district, you’ll find artisan boutiques and high-end retailers.

A little further north, not far from the TPC Scottsdale championship golf course, the Kierland Commons offer tourists and locals alike a stylish outdoor shopping center with upscale designer boutiques and restaurants.

Among the bustling businesses in Scottsdale is Southwest Jewelry Buyers, a local, A+ rated company by the Better Business Bureau.

Our friendly, knowledgeable team has been committed to giving Scottsdale residents and tourists the best service and best prices for their gold, silver, diamonds, and platinum jewelry since they opened in 2000.

As a licensed jewelry buyer by the City of Scottsdale, you can be sure you’re getting the best prices for all your jewelry.
