“All the souvenirs you want”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We stopped for a beer at Wendy's bar situated at the top end for the main street, the first thing we were given was a large glass of ice water, the girl behind the bar insisted we drank it before she would serve us our beers, I can't remember her name but she was very friendly and had a nice way about her, she did explain to us the dry heat often catches tourist out (it was our first day there and it was knocking 100 F by mid morning), we asked her for the best place to buy boots as we thought the shop a few doors down was a bit expensive and didn't have the type of boots we were looking for (Saba ), she explained they are very good quality but a a bit inflated for tourist, and gave us the name of a shop (Cowtown boots) a bit out of town ($10.00 from the hotel) prices were reasonable they had the boots we wanted and are also hand made.

“Ice Cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

When you go to Old Town ,you have to stop at the Ice Cream Parlor on the corner. You can't miss it. It's old school and then you have to walk around to the shops to walk off the ice cream. Lots to see in Old Town.......

I enjoyed being able to walk to several restaurants and the old West atmosphere. Loved the wig shop windows at night.

“A Must Do if you are in the Scottsdale area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Old Scottsdale is a very cool place...it has plenty of shops, restaurants and bars. We did go bar hopping a couple of times and found that the local establishments are the best and most friendliest...Everyone is sooo friendly and they are always willing to call you a cab as opposed to walking or driving. Our favorite bar was a place called "Pattie's on 1st Ave, and our favorite bartender was Nate. He is so knowledgeable of every drink he makes loves what he does and the establishment he works for! It's a very warm and friendly place...it may seem like a "dive" bar to some--but we all loved it and visited many times during our trip!
