As the leaves begin to turn and the autumn colors decorate the northern hemisphere with beautiful splashes of ochres and ambers, fall festivals start to spring up on our calendars, and fun fall activities come into full swing. The Inn At Eagle Mountain is one of the top boutique hotels in Scottsdale, and we are ready to help you discover the beauty of our area during this spectacular season. Join us for festivals, leaf looking day trip adventures, and many other fabulous fall adventures. Scottsdale may not be a place you would think has colorful fall foliage, but the areas around us become postcard scenes that are worth a short drive to our national forest areas.
Discovering Our Fall Landscapes
Though many do not view the desert as the best place to find fall foliage, when you take a drive to one of our beautiful nature reserves, you will find our forest areas are full of fascinating secrets. Though you may need to drive out of Scottsdale for a small day trip to see the best of the fall colors that Arizona has to offer, it is well worth the short drive. The Tonto National Park is perfect for a hike to reach fall foliage with stunning waterfalls hidden away from the busy city limits. The Flagstaff area has a “leaf-ometer” to keep Arizona locals looped in on when the best time is to get out to see those stunning colorful scenes. This is a fantastic opportunity to find an adventure beyond The Inn At Eagle Mountain, and once you have seen the sites and explored to your heart’s content, you will be returning to one of the top boutique hotels in Scottsdale for an evening in complete comfort.
The Season Of Festivals
Autumn is a time of fun festivals, and from the end of September through the end of October, you can join in the Scottsdale fall fun. To kick off the season, MacDonald’s Ranch opens up their annual pumpkin patch in the last few days of September and bring fall joy to locals through Halloween. Pick out your favorite pumpkin for a jack-o-lantern, visit animals in the petting zoo, pan for gold, and more! Vertuccio Farms also has a fun fall festival that offers endless fun for visitors. Navigate your way through a seven-acre corn maze, take a ride on a mini zip line, and discover all of the other fun activities for a full day of fall adventure!
