Discover what being a DreamTrips™ Member is all about on this Welcome DreamTrip to Scottsdale, Arizona. Enjoy a private, 2-hour sightseeing tour of Saguaro Lake aboard the newly remodeled Desert Belle — the boat’s double-decker design with large windows and an open-air upper deck offers unobstructed views of the landscape. Marvel at steep canyon walls, ancient geological formations and desert flora and fauna as the boat cruises around the lake. Animal sightings may include bighorn sheep and eagles. Then, spend the rest of your time in Scottsdale exploring the area on your own, or enjoying all that the award-winning Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch has to offer.

What we love:

• Saguaro Lake, in Tonto National Forest, is a 10-mile-long (16-kilometer-long) reservoir named after the Saguaro cactus that dots the desert landscape.
• The complimentary Scottsdale Trolley is an easy way to get around the downtown.
• Scottsdale’s 1st golf course opened in 1920. Today, the city and surrounding area includes approximately 200 courses, many within a short drive of your lodgings.

  • Destination
    Known as the “West’s Most Western Town,” Scottsdale lies within the Sonoran Desert of central Arizona. Once a desert community of ranches and farms, Scottsdale has grown into a city frequently named one of the best places in America to visit, live and do business. Low humidity, year-round warm weather and more than 330 days of sunshine result in a favorable climate that attracts tourists and outdoor enthusiasts from all over the world.

    Its downtown is full of world-class museums, lively nightlife and large retail venues. Old Town Scottsdale features original buildings from the late 1800s and early 1900s, including a general store, bank and saloon. The nearby desert is home to spa resorts, golf courses and mountains such as the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy, with more than 100 miles (161 kilometers) of scenic hiking trails.

    Please remember to book a reservation for everyone you’re bringing along on your DreamTrip before you travel. Otherwise, they’ll be charged the hotel’s prevailing rate, not the trip price.

    Gratuities are not included at the resort. We suggest US$3 per day for housekeeping, and US$5 per bag for porterage.

    Sample menu for 3-course farewell dinner:
    • An appetizer of Caesar salad with garlic croutons.

All fees are on a per-person basis.

    *This cancellation policy is subject to rules and regulations in applicable jurisdictions in which our travel supplier is based.
