If you’re tired of shoveling snow, and ready to experience the finer side of life, then Arizona just might be calling your name. Set in the midst of the Sonoran desert, Scottsdale is where we residents of Aderra Condominiums call home.

1. Sunshine Awaits

With over 250 days of sun each year, Phoenix is one of the sunniest places on earth, allowing you to enjoy the scenic mountains and beautiful hiking all year long.  Pick up a pair of hiking boots at the conveniently located nearby shopping center, and explore the robust hills of the Sonoran desert.

2. A Healthier, Happier You

It’s no secret that drier, warmer weather that we experience in Arizona eases joint pain, making Scottsdale’s arid climate a welcome change for those looking for relief. It’s time to trade in those anti-inflammatories for sunglasses and get exploring.

3. Everything You Need to Entertain

With the community amenities provided at Aderra — including grilling stations, a picnic area, and a resort-inspired pool — your condo will become the perfect getaway for your family to visit. Enjoy watching your grandchildren splash in the pool, while you soak in the lush greenery and lounge in the sun.

4. Award Winning Golf Course

When you’ve satisfied your love of entertaining, make use of the direct access to Stonecreek Golf Club and get away for a round of your favorite game. Improve your swing inspired by the course’s immaculately maintained championship layout.

5. Shopping and Dining For Everyone

If you love shopping and eating out, look no further that Cactus Road East, which boasts Paradise Valley Mall as well as a variety of delicious eateries ranging in cuisines. Sit down for a delicious steak dinner at LongHorn Steakhouse or try out authentic Indian at Marigold Maison.  

6. Get Around Quickly and Easily

Getting around Scottsdale is a breeze, whether by car or by public transportation which includes the trolley system and many Valley Metro bus routes.

7. Festivals to Amaze You

Scottsdale is home to many popular annual events including the much loved Waste Management Phoenix Open, as well as Native Trails, a free outdoor festival celebrating the Native American cultures of the Southwest through song and dance.

8. Cultural Experiences Await

Visit Scottsdale’s Historical Museum in Old Town to learn about local history and experience the Scottsdale Artwalk which takes place every Thursday evening. This district offers shopping, dining, nightlife and galleries including the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, where you could meet other art lovers to sketch with in the galleries.

9. Welcome to the Spa Capital

Scottsdale has the most resort spas per capita, making the city the perfect place to rest and restore. Choose from a variety of spas, each offering a unique set of treatments to help you find your balance, and ease the stress of modern living.  

10. Save on Taxes

Those who call Arizona home pay no tax on social security income, as well as avoid inheritance tax, gift tax and estate taxes, making retiring in Scottsdale a smart financial move.

Vacationers and celebrities alike are pulled to Scottsdale for its luxurious sunshine, fine dining, elite car auctions, and resorts. For those who winter there, living in Scottsdale, and Aderra, is a taste of the good life, full of all the indulgences that make it all just that much sweeter.
