I got an email not too long ago from a mom (and her daughters) asking if I could post some info about Scottsdale from a web site they found called AreaVibes. They are moving to Scottsdale later this summer, and were researching the area.
The web site that they found and asked me to share ranked Scottsdale as the #2 city in its Top Ten Best Places to Live list for 2013.
I would definitly agree with the AreaVibes assessment of the city.
…if you are for the best of everything, then Scottsdale is your city. Scottsdale is even called the Beverly Hills of Arizona. It is home to top rated spas, resorts, restaurants and an amazing selection of retail stores. Along with having the best of everything, you will be impressed with how safe you will feel in Scottsdale. The violent crime rate in less than half of the Arizona average.
I’ve added a link to the AreaVibes web site, so you can research Scottsdale and the surrounding areas,
