Rain, Rain, Go Away From Our Vacation Rentals Scottsdale

Things To Do | July 5, 2018 | SWSS Staff

There’s definitely no shortage of things to do in The Valley of the Sun this summer, but what about around the end of July or early August, when the city’s desert-driven storms, known locally as ‘monsoons’, make an appearance near our vacation rentals? Scottsdale gets more than 200 days of sunshine year-round, so what do you do when it rains? Don’t worry, with a little help from our friends at Visit Phoenix, we’ve got you covered:

Check out a Museum

Drizzle, downpour, or dust storm, you can count on our world-famous museums to shield you from the elements.

Hit the Mall

As if you needed a reason to treat yourself, seek shelter at Scottsdale Fashion Square when rain is in the forecast. Catch a movie at Harkins Camelview at Fashion Square, watch the storm roll in from the safety of the covered patios at Kona Grill or Yard House, or cure your rainy day blues with retail therapy at the hundreds of stores inside Arizona’s largest shopping center.

Catch a Movie

There’s no such thing as a boring rainy day at Alamo Drafthouse, where great movies, cold beer and good food come together in perfect harmony. Duck for cover inside either their Tempe or Chandler locales, where the only condensation you’ll find is on your ice cold pint glass.

Grab a Drink

When it’s raining outside, it’s pouring inside at local Phoenix breweries and coffee shops. Stop refreshing your weather app and refresh with a hot latte or a cold pint instead.

Family-Friendly Activities

It’s raining, it’s pouring and your kids say it’s boring. Get out of the house and keep your crew entertained at Legoland Discovery CenterOdysea Aquarium and Butterfly Wonderland. Work up an appetite racing Lego vehicles or hanging with stingrays? Head to one of Phoenix’s kid-friendly restaurants.

Never let a little thing like the weather stop you from exploring all Scottsdale has to offer. Need more suggestions? We’re here to help! Check out our Property listings to book your stay, and drop us a line — we’d love to hear from you!
