Plan the Ultimate Girls’ Trip to Scottsdale with A Local’s Perfect Itinerary

Travel Tips | May 1, 2024 | SWSS Staff

There is a reason Scottsdale, Arizona, is such a popular location for a girls’ getaway. A girls’ trip to Scottsdale offers fabulous shopping, high-end accommodations, relaxing spas, delicious dining, cool cocktail bars, beautiful scenery, and just the right amount of adventure. What more could a girl ask for? 

Fun Things to Do on a Weekend Girls’ Trip to Scottsdale

Ready to grab a few good friends to embark on a Scottsdale girls’ trip?

After landing at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, hopping in a rental car, and checking into your stunning vacation rental from Stay With Style Scottsdale, here are some ideas of the best things to do in Scottsdale, Arizona, on an unforgettable girls’ trip!

Epic Adventures

A woman in activewear stands on a desert trail, gazing out at a vast landscape dotted with cacti.

Scottsdale might be known for its luxury resorts, world-class spas, and high-end shopping, but you can’t visit Scottsdale without venturing into the breathtaking desert scenery. There are many outdoor activities to enjoy in Scottsdale — from rock climbing to horseback riding — but the easiest way to see the stunning Sonoran Desert is on one of Scottsdale’s excellent hiking trails!

For experienced hikers, Camelback Mountain is the most famous (and scenic) hike in Scottsdale and offers stunning views of Greater Phoenix. However, for those looking for a more moderate hike, the Gateway Loop Trail and Tom’s Thumb Trail in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve are excellent hiking trails and offer incredible views of the McDowell Mountains and Sonoran Desert.

If hiking isn’t your thing, but you’d like to enjoy the unique desert scenery, consider visiting the Desert Botanical Garden to see tons of native cacti and plant species, or book a hot air balloon ride over the Sonoran Desert. An early morning sunrise or a sunset balloon ride will be an unforgettable memory on a girls’ weekend in Scottsdale!

Boozy Brunches

Scottsdale, AZ, offers great restaurants and dining options perfect for a girls’ trip — especially if you love brunch spots with great food and photo-worthy decor!

Try Prep & Pastry in Old Town Scottsdale for incredible brioche-style French toast and build-your-own mimosas, Hash Kitchen for a weekend DJ and a bloody Mary bar, and The Henry for a refined weekend brunch with a full espresso bar, breakfast cocktails, and sweet and savory breakfast items.

Swanky Cocktail Bars

Two cocktails rest on a chic bar's white marble countertop, with a red cocktail in a martini glass on the right and a mojito-like drink with fresh mint in a short glass on the left. Softly lit candles and a potted plant add to the ambience. The background features an elegant bar setting with shelves of various bottles, mirrors, and hanging spherical light fixtures that cast a warm glow over the scene.

Looking for the perfect place to sip on craft cocktails in Scottsdale? Whether you’re searching for a prickly pear margarita or an espresso martini, you’ll find tons of creative drinks at the best restaurants and cocktail lounges in Scottsdale, which have charming ambiances perfect for a girls’ trip.

If you’re looking for a great happy hour, head to Diego Pops in Old Town Scottsdale. This Mexican restaurant is one of the best restaurants in Old Town Scottsdale. It offers spectacular happy hour deals, like $6 margaritas, sangrias, or glasses of wine, and half-off appetizers, like Grilled Street Corn and Brussels Sprout Nachos. The Canal Club, located at The Scott Resort in Old Town Scottsdale, is another great place to grab tropical drinks. This beautiful resort has a great pool, so consider renting one of the private cabanas at The Canal Club for the day and getting poolside service!

If you want a unique cocktail experience, make reservations at Century Grand. This concept by Barter & Shake Cocktail Entertainment includes three speakeasies with a distinctive flair and style in one location. Platform 18 whisks guests away on an elegant train ride in the Roaring Twenties. UnderTow is a nautical-inspired cocktail bar with dozens of tropical drinks on the menu, and Grey Hen is a New Orleans prohibition-style speakeasy. Century Grand is a must-visit during a girls’ weekend in Scottsdale!

Wine Tasting

Another fun experience in Downtown Scottsdale is embarking on the Old Town Scottsdale Wine Trail — a series of locally-owned wineries within walking distance of each other in Old Town.

The wineries on the Old Town Scottsdale Wine Trail include Aridus Tasting Room, Carlson Creek Tasting Room, LDV Winery Tasting Room, Merkin Vineyards Tasting Room, and Salvatore Vineyards Tasting Room. Each winery offers different tasting experiences and an array of red and white wines.

High-End Boutique Shopping

A shopper browses through clothing in a boutique with a cozy and inviting atmosphere. The store features wooden floors and bright, naturally lit interiors, with racks of clothing in various colors neatly displayed.

Scottsdale is a shopper’s paradise. Scottsdale has many different shopping experiences, so whether you’re looking for high-end retailers or charming local boutiques, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for (and more!) during a girls’ trip to Scottsdale.

One of the best places for shopping in Scottsdale is Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall, the largest mall in Arizona and one of the largest malls in the American Southwest. Scottsdale Fashion Square boasts 200+ brand-name stores, luxury retailers, and upscale restaurants.

If you’re looking for a more artistic, boutique shopping experience, Old Town Scottsdale and North Scottsdale offer several local shops where you’ll find beautiful artwork, western decor, and local souvenirs. Kierland Commons and Scottsdale Quarter are fantastic outdoor shopping malls in Central Scottsdale with a blend of well-known retailers, local boutiques, and popular restaurants that are also great spots for shopping and dining in Scottsdale on a girls’ trip. 

Luxurious Spa Treatments

Wouldn’t you love to treat yourself to a spa day during a girls’ trip to Scottsdale? If so, booking a spa treatment, like a massage, facial, or body treatment, at one of the top day spas in Scottsdale is in order!

Many popular resorts in Scottsdale and Phoenix, like Hotel Valley Ho, known for its mid-century modern architecture and multiple pools, and The Phoenician, known for having one of the best spas in the Valley, with a steam room, sauna, and vitality hot tub, allow visitors to book spa services without staying on the property. This is a huge perk if you’ll be staying in a spacious vacation rental instead of a resort!

Stunning Accommodations

You don’t have to stay at one of the popular Scottsdale resorts for the full Scottsdale experience. A luxury vacation rental in Scottsdale offers the best of both worlds for a girls’ trip — it provides the same fun, high-end amenities as a resort, like heated swimming pools, jacuzzi tubs, pickleball courts, and plush furniture — but with added privacy for a relaxing and rejuvenating girls’ getaway.
