Everything you could possibly need or want, from budget-to-highend tastes is within a 5 mile radius of N Scottsdale, including several annual world class events that attract hundreds of thousands of visitors EACH...and more restaurants than you could ever possibly visit. Its clean, safe, and there are ample housing and employment opportunities available for everyone with almost every major industry. The cost of living is about 1/2 what you would pay in NY or CA, yet it is much newer and cleaner. I absolutely love North Scottsdale. I've been a resident for 3 years and have no plans to return to NY or CA again.
