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!
Effective June 19, 2020, face coverings are mandatory in Scottsdale. Face coverings are required in public places including grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, retail stores, special events and public transit. Click here for more detailed information.
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.
Restaurants: Dine-in service, with reduced occupancy and enhanced sanitation measures, is available at many of Old Town’s finest restaurants. Restaurants are continuing to offer curbside pick-up and delivery so you can still sample the area’s culinary delights at home or in your hotel.
Retail: Merchants reopened with proper social distancing and sanitation measures to keep shoppers safe.
Hotels & Resorts: Several Scottsdale 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. Pools also are open at hotels and resorts, though groups larger than 10 are prohibited from congregating together in or near the pool. According to the CDC, with proper operation and maintenance, there is no evidence that the virus can be spread to people through the water in pools, hot tubs, spas or water play areas.
