If the endless options for fun in the city of Scottsdale are overwhelming, let us help you out by giving you the details on the three Saturday attractions you definitely need to fit into your vacation itinerary.

  1. Old Town Farmers’ Market – Start your day off right with the Old Town Farmers’ Market. Every Saturday morning at 7 a.m., the city of Scottsdale comes to life with friendly faces offering you the best local, organic food – from mouth-watering meats and cheeses to fresh fruit and freshly baked bread. Test your green thumb at some gardening classes or enjoy one of the special chef presentations. Bring the whole family, your pets and your appetite!
  1. Swim Social Weekends at the Picante Pool – Unleash your inner mermaid at the Picante Pool for one of Scottsdale’s most popular social events. Every Saturday, head to this pool party and get your groove on to the sounds of DJ Al Page. If your feet start to hurt from all the dancing, relax with a poolside foot rub and a chilled summer cocktail. At 6 p.m., mermaids and synchronized swimmers take over the pool for an entertaining aquatic show. Admission is $5.
  1. Living Room Live – When you visit Scottsdale on a Saturday, there’s only one place to be when the sun goes down. The Living Room Lounge is Scottsdale’s finest upscale lounge, with a unique, comfortable atmosphere and the best martinis the city has to offer. Every Friday and Saturday night, local and national recording artists take the stage to provide live entertainment. To reserve a table, call 602-405-0099 or e-mail vip@triyar.com.

Whether you’re in the mood to feast on local cuisine or sip some cocktails after sundown, there are always plenty of reasons to visit Scottsdale on a Saturday. Unfortunately, there are only 24 hours in a day, so you may need to extend your stay to make sure you experience all the fun a Scottsdale vacation has to offer.
