In some places of Old Town, the Old West never left and to this day remains tightly tethered to our history. The Historic District of Old Town has done a wonderful job preserving our western reputation. Walk around and you can see original buildings such as the red brick schoolhouse, now the Scottsdale Historical Museum. You can find original signage and storefronts and old saloons like Rusty Spur. And where cowpokes don’t kick up dust anymore, sculptures and monuments and museums have taken their place. You won’t find the authentic west like this anywhere else in the Valley.
OLD TOWN IS OPEN!
On May 15, 2020, Arizona’s stay-at-home order expired. All businesses are allowed to reopen in accordance with stringent guidelines established by Gov. Doug Ducey and the Arizona Department of Health Services designed to minimize the risk of COVID-19. For detailed information from the Arizona Department of Health Services, click here.
We recommend calling ahead to any business you plan to visit to confirm that they are open and what specific safety policies and procedures are in effect.
Hotels & Resorts: Several properties are currently open and ready to welcome guests with safe, clean rooms and plenty of warm Southwestern hospitality. For information on available accommodations, click here.
