Are you walking around Scottsdale wanting to get a break from the shops and bars? Then check out the waterfront, Arizona Canal, which is located right in Old Town.
Go to where N. Scottsdale Rd. and E. Camelback Rd. meet. You have options for waterfront dining or sitting by the river. The walkway that follows is the Arizona Canal Trail which leads NorthEast and SouthWest.
There are many joggers and dog walkers which add to the peaceful sight. Parking is free but get there early on a weekend!
