Hiatus: Scottsdale, AZ
If the last time you watched the sun rise you were stumbling back to your condo in Mexico during spring break, it’s been way too long. As the sun rises over the outline of mountains, turning from a bright yellow and red spotlight into a plethora of color filling the sky, a 6:30 a.m. breakfast at the CopperWynd Resort and Club in Scottsdale, Ariz. is the perfect place to enjoy this early-morning experience.
Nestled among the beautiful Arizona rocks sits this boutique hotel where every customer counts and the service is top-rate. Championship golf and tennis will fill your days while your nights are filled with the sumptuous treats from Alchemy, one of Scottsdale’s most romantic restaurants. The accommodations at CopperWynd are quaint with a rustic feeling, a fireplace in each room and a large, luxurious bathroom. You’re free to hike the perimeter of the grounds and work leg muscles you forgot you had or head downstairs to the spa for a steam, Jacuzzi and massage.
There really is no reason to leave this resort; but if you do, head for Old Town Scottsdale, an area filled with art galleries, shops and fun restaurants. The Cowboy Ciao is the perfect mixture of upscale eatery and cantina. The margaritas are a treat made with fresh fruit juices and served on the rocks. The sea bass selection is huge and juicy with fresh mango chutney that complements the margaritas perfectly. H
