Whether you’ve moved from Mesa, the San Francisco Bay Area or from across the Pacific Ocean, settling into a new area can be both exciting and overwhelming. Within the first few months, you will likely be establishing new routines, getting to know local hotspots, looking for local professionals and influencers, and exploring your new community’s vast resources.

From dining to hiking and shopping, this is your locals’ guide to what you need to know and what you want to know about your new community. With so much to offer, you’ll need a guide to truly understand the area from current residents’ points of view.

The goal of this publication is to bring to light many of the countless opportunities of living in North Scottsdale from hiking in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, golfing at the TPC Scottsdale to shopping/dining at Scottsdale Quarter and Kierland Commons.

BeLocal North Scottsdale gives you the best of the best, written by residents who are experts at their crafts and influencers in their fields. All of the content in this publication came from fellow area residents who answered a survey of their favorite places to eat, shop, and visit. These things aren’t always easy to figure out.
