Scottsdale is a city in the eastern part of Maricopa County, Arizona, which is part of the Greater Phoenix Area. The city was named in 1894 after founder Winfield Scott and incorporated in 1951. The New York Times described downtown Scottsdale as “a desert version of Miami‘s South Beach” and as having “plenty of late night partying and a buzzing hotel scene.” Its slogan is “The West’s Most Western Town.” Scottsdale, 31 miles long and 11.4 miles wide at its widest point, shares boundaries with many other municipalities and entities. On the west, it’s bordered by Phoenix, Paradise Valley and unincorporated Maricopa County land. Carefree is located along the western boundary, as well as sharing Scottsdale’s northern boundary with the Tonto National Forest. To the south, Scottsdale is bordered by Tempe. North Scottsdale is currently the most actively developed area of Scottsdale and claims some of the most expensive houses in Arizona, with many exceeding $5 million in value. Much of the residential boom in North Scottsdale is driven by available land to build coupled with the fast growth of Scottsdale Airpark, one of the largest employment centers in the Phoenix metropolitan.
