Debating between Scottsdale and Vegas ( but we don't gamble!) to celebrate my 40th with my best friend and our husbands. We both love Scottsdale and have come for our annual girls trip ( I've also been with the fam and hubs) on a couple of occasions. I need advice on where you would recommend 2 couples should stay for this trip. We would be there at the end of October ( 25-27th). We would do a spa treatment or two, want to do a little hiking or walking in the vicinity of the resort. A resort with some activity, scenery, or amenities would be a ++. A must is a couple of great places to dine out on or near property- we will have a car. However, one night we would love to hoop it up a bit so being close enough to walk, stay put, or cab it would be great. Any type of food is ok, although one of us is NOT a red meat eater, so variety is good. We would enjoy being able to do at least one night of dancing or listening to live music in the area or on property-one night of a lively atmosphere. We have stayed at Montelucia, Royal Palms, Firesky, The Boulders, Sheraton Desert Oasis ( family trip), Ritz Carlton ( business trip) and loved them all.
Just trying to decide which resort would be best for a couple trips trip this time with a mixture of lively and relaxation. Happy to return or try some of the many untapped areas of Scottsdale. Opinions welcomed.
