Great place.Just finished 5 nights camping here. Lots and lots of trails for hiking (and if you must, biking). I hate to recommend this place, as that would mean more people would come, and it's hard enough to get a reservation. But it is a great place. We are heading back again in January. Very clean, and great place for a travel trailer.

Although We-Ko-Pah has wide airways, steep elevation changes and side hill lies make the course play longer than indicated. Also, long putts are challenging on the contoured surfaces. This is a course that forces you to think how to approach each shot and demands accuracy.

The fountain in the center of town is on for 15 minutes every hour from 10 am to 9 p.m. daily.
We went to see the fountain on a day when there was a disc golf tournament on the disc golf course around the lake. Due to that, we had to stay on the sidewalk and off the grass, because you cannot easily discern where the disc golf fairways are on both sides of the sidewalk. (The “holes” are very, very long.). We decided to walk around the lake, since it was a nice spring day, and watch the high level disc golf a bit. Two warnings: the lake is not round, so it is farther than it appears from the west side parking; and there are a lot of ducks (at least in early March) so you have to watch where you step to avoid their droppings. The shrubs and cacti are very pretty, and their are a lot of sculptures along the pathway. It Isabella worth the visit.

Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center is a non-profit rescue and rehabilitation facility specializing in wild mammals. Over 70% of the animals that come into our center are returned to the wild. For those that cannot be released, we offer a home for life in our sanctuary. We conduct guided tours of our sanctuary by appointment only. Reservations are required and can be made on our website under the Visit Us tab.
We did this small group tour with LoriAnn, and she did such a wonderful job. Explaining without making your eyes glaze over, or anyone in our group losing interest. This is not a zoo or a petting zoo. It is a sanctuary in the truest...MoreI am so glad that you enjoyed the tour. And thank you for the positive review. LoriAnn will be happy to hear that you enjoyed her tour! We hope to see you for a return visit!

We took an afternoon to hike this area and see the fantastic views. Bring plenty of water and wear more of a hiking shoe and not a running shoe. It's patrolled by volunteers that help if needed and pick up incidental litter. FUN afternoon!

A tad expensive to enter 22 per person but a nice way to spend the early day. Several areas within including a butterfly hummingbird area, herb garden, several other loops of specific vegetation. All trails are configured within loops so no chance of getting turned around! Maps available upon entrance. Many, many types of succulents in their natural state with volunteers to answer any questions. Large cacti abound everywhere you look. A very nice lunch area and restrooms and gift shop. Plenty of free parking. Some areas with a slight incline but all paved with concrete and easy for scooters and w/c to navigate. A must see while in the area. This park is very clean and well maintained. Many hummingbirds, butterflies and bunnies a few squirrels and quails as well can be seen. It can be hot as there is very little covered areas. Most of cacti are in their natural vegetation. I suggest you go in the morning hours as the middle of afternoon can become very hot. Bring water or purchase from a vending machine in the main loop area.

Take a guided tour through world-renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright's winter retreat and studio, which exemplifies the principles of design he was famous for.
Spent part of our recent Spring Break trip to see local sights around Scottsdale, glad we were able to make same day reservation. Would highly recommend that you bring your own sunshade umbrella with you and bottled water, as the wait time and walking between buildings can be a bit much with the intense heat. Plan to stay close to your guide to hear all the details, and be fully prepared for a small "membership sales pitch" at the end of the tour, which honestly could be better addressed at the time you purchase your tickets as an option.

An excellent place for a morning hike. There are a variety of trails of differing distance and nothing seemingly too steep or difficult. This is a popular destination, so be prepared to share the trails with bikers, dogs, and other hikers. Everyone we encountered was friendly and considerate. Bathrooms are clean and parking plentiful. Highly recommend for families.

A regular stop on trips to Scottsdale / Fountain Hills! Originally this gallery was recommended to us by a waitress at a neighboring restaurant, Sofritas. The artwork is very high quality by local artisans AND reasonably priced. It apparently is a coop and every artist we have met, has been knowledgable about all the artists and their work. I've yet to leave without making a purchase - selection and variety of art is exceptional. Highly recommend a visit to this gallery!

High in Fountain Hills - in the posh Eagles Nest subdivision- is Dixie Mine Trail. The hike is pretty easy, and there are views in all directions - down to Fountain Hills proper to snow capped mountains in all directions. Other than the annoying security drone that follows you to make sure you stay on the path, this is a great hiking experience.
