    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    If there was a test to dictate cities that are somewhat of an anomaly, Scottsdale could apply for entrance into the club and pass without a question asked. Located in the eastern part of Maricopa County in Arizona, right across from Phoenix, Scottsdale is considered a resort destination in the middle of the desert, with the New York Times describing the city as a desert version of Miami's South Beach, with plenty of late-night partying and a buzzing hotels scene. With a distinctly Western theme and style, Scottsdale is one of those upscale places where shopping and visiting takes a little more than a budget traveler can afford, but it is definitely worth the splurge if you want an all-inclusive experience.

    In many ways, Scottsdale is similar to a great number of British cities in the sense that there are over 130 miles of canals working their way through the entire city. The difference is that in Britain the canals are used for boating these days, and were once used for transportation of goods in between cities, whereas in Scottsdale they are used primarily for irrigation. It is these canals which have created the vibrant and green surroundings in the middle of the desert, and they are a perfect way to experience the earth like nature of the city away from the glitz and glamour of the resorts if you prefer walking, jogging, or cycling.

    Everything in Scottsdale relates to an all-inclusive experience. This is a resort town, which means it's all about shopping, eating out at restaurants, heading to the nearest health club, taking in many festivals and shows that make their way through every year, and generally just enjoying yourself. Nestled in a lush valley, Scottsdale is surrounded by desert terrain and mountains as well, so if you find yourself longing for a little bit of the outdoors it is definitely at your disposal, not to mention the views looking down at the city are spectacular.
