There are so many reasons that a Scottsdale trip is awesome this time of year. Forget the obvious things like sunshine, warm temperatures and palm trees – you already know all that. But we’re pretty sure you won’t want to miss the three surprising things on our list. Book one of Westbrook’s Scottsdale vacation homes now and come kick that post-holiday depression at these fun events:

1. Lady Gaga. Our Lady of Perpetual Weirdness hasn’t put out a new album in quite some time, so we’re not quite sure why she’s touring right now. Actually, we’re pretty certain it’s the money. But we’re not mad – Gaga puts on a super-theatrical and awesome show that any fan of pop music should see at least once. Considering a Scottsdale trip this month? The Gaga concert on the 23rd should seal the deal on your decision.

2. Russo and Steele. If you’re a car fanatic, you’re going to freak for this event. Each January, The Russo and Steele auction house in Scottsdale sets the yearly standard for the market value of collector cars. The five-day-long event is open to the general public, so even if you’re not rich enough to participate, you can come gawk at all the amazing vehicles and finally answer the “who can afford to spend that much money on a car!” question. This year’s auctions start on the 16th and continue through the 20th.

3. Arizona Antique Market. If you’re into antiques, you’d better bring a big suitcase with you on your Scottsdale trip. The Arizona Antique Market brings some of the state’s most renowned antique dealers to Scottsdale this January 18th through the 20th. Treasure abounds here, and you never know, you might actually make a little money. What if some of that old junk in your grandma’s attic isn’t junk after all?

Give seasonal depression the boot this January. We just gave you three fantastic reasons to take a Scottsdale trip, so what are you waiting for? Book one of our Scottsdale vacation homes today.
