Benefits of Living in Scottsdale
1. Camelback Mountain

With two main trails (one on either side of the mountain) to choose from, residents can hike to the top, or stop halfway up if they are looking for something a bit more low key. On the weekends, Camelback Mountain is a busy place to be, but busy in a good way. You’ll be hiking along with fellow Arizonians who enjoy the outdoors and scenery that Scottsdale has to offer.

With bike paths constructed throughout the city, you can get from point A to point B with ease, and get in a workout by cycling your way to lunch, dinner, or the store to pick up a few things for the upcoming week. In addition to being bike friendly, Scottsdale bike paths are kept extremely clean and well taken care of. You’ll enjoy riding your bike in Scottsdale for ¾ of the year. During the summer, we like to suggest sticking to transportation with AC.
3. Running Trails
In addition to the trails in the mountains, Scottsdale also has quite a few running trails, perfect for staying in shape, being active, and enjoying the outdoors. Scottsdale residents get to enjoy the shopping and restaurants of a larger city, but reap the benefits of fresh air and cleanliness smaller towns have to offer. Running on a regular basis is by far one of the most popular forms of exercise. It requires little to no equipment and works out the entire body. The only downside to running is the wear and tear it can have on your knees.
