Saguaro cactus, ocotillo and other desert vegetation have been illuminated on the resort grounds and will remain lit through the New Year. The luminous displays lend credence to the well earned state moniker: The Magical Land of AZ.

Now is a great time to enjoy the resort, whether through a stay or a meal at the American canteen, Proof, or the resort’s steakhouse, Talavera.

Tennis, swimming and golf at the Pinnacle and Monument championship golf courses at Troon North come with stays. The Four Seasons Scottsdale has in fact been ranked among the “75 Best Golf Resorts in North America” by Golf Digest magazine, in 2011.

Or visit the 12,000-square-foot spa and fitness center with 14 treatment rooms.

A trail from the resort grounds leads directly to hiking trails at Pinnacle Peak Park. Great mountain biking is also nearby at the McDowell Sonoran Desert preserve trails.

For sky gazing, the resort has placed telescopes in all suites (188 guest rooms in total), and every Friday night telescope are available for any guest to enjoy. At 2,651 above sea level, the night sky is ink-black, punctuated by a stellar array of stars, planets and the occasional comet.
