|Looking to explore the new dining and shopping sensation in Scottsdale? Try the Waterfront, built along the banks of the Arizona Canal, you'll find shops, restaurants and art. To ad to the water theme, there are fountains and a waterfall with the wonderful sounds of splashing water, which is manna in our desert.
Linked to Scottsdale Fashion Square by way of a foot bridge and easily accessible to the 5th Avenue Shops, Downtown Scottsdale makes the perfect spot to shop till you drop. The waterfront is an exciting new addition to Scottsdale for living as well as shopping. New high rise condos make a mark on our skyline that hasn't been there before. Would you believe the tallest building in Scottsdale at 143 feet?
The restaurants include Wildfish Seafood Grille, a sister restaurant to Eddie V's Grill in North Scottsdale, serving premier seafood and steaks that make your mouth water. Pink Taco ( a subject for another page) and P.F.Chang's China Bistro, an all time favorite for traditional Chinese cuisine. For lighter fare, you might try Sauce, thin crust pizza to die for and great wine selection. They also offer chopped salads, (Cowboy Ciao might have to watch out) and Olive & Ivy restaurant is packed to the walls most days and nights.
A really different shop is Swoozie's, hard to describe, but you might find any novelty based on "celebration". A party store that offers customized invitations and personalized gifts. Wonderful for brides-to-be, their consultants will have you all fixed up in just minutes. For the casual and hip fashion
conscious, try Urban Outfitters, women's and men's apparel and accessories. Mash's featured in two national magazines offers designer must-haves and handbags.
For book lovers, there is the ever popular Borders, a huge store with thousands of book titles, music cd's and other gift offerings, plus coffee of course, the kind of store that made "Sleepless in Seatle" famous. If you're into cooking, you can take a class or just shop for your kitchen ware at Sur La Table, lots of gadgets you never knew you needed or how you lived without them.
Isaac Jewelers offer jewelry designs by local designer, so you won't see yourself coming and going with unique pieces that are just too hard to resist...and if you're looking for designer clothes, you'll find about 50 top-name designers at Estilo Boutique. This is their second location and it proves Scottsdale gals want to look trendy. You'll love the selection.
