“Touristy, but Terrific!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

Old Town Scottsdale was a lot of fun. Many bars, restaurants and shops with an old west vibe. Kind of neat to walk around and pop in and out of the many shops selling silver jewelry and western wear. Great place to people watch also!!

“Nice area of visit at least once!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

Interesting stores, cute to walk around for a bit, but over priced and very similar from one to the next. Lots of galleries, expensive, and some very tacky souvenirs can be found here. Plenty of restaurants but parking can be an issue on the weekends!

“Nothing special.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014 via mobile

My family and I stopped by here to burn a few hours. We ended up only spending about an hour. Unless you like looking at jewelry, leather products, or going to bars over and over again, there is not much else here. I would probably skip this place and find some other attraction in Scottsdale (like Butterfly Wonderland) to spend a few hours.

“NICE!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

Tucked in between various art districts, Old Town is a curious blend of boutiques (western and otherwise), jewelry shops (again, western and otherwise), and souvenir shops that somehow come together into a pleasing setting for a day outside.

“Lots of Art Galleries, Flowers, and Gardens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

Old Town in Scottsdale is a destination I go back to almost every time I visit the Phoenix area. I enjoy walking around and looking at some of the art galleries and enjoying the beautiful gardens. Yes, it is very touristy with plenty of stores that sell overpriced junk. But I still enjoy it.

Also , there are plenty of places to sit down and enjoy a meal or just a drink. Very safe and enjoyable. Parking can be a problem so plan to walk from where you park your car to Old Town.
