Sheknows Absolutely Scottsdale was Absolutely AmazingI was invited to Experience Scottsdale in November 2016 and was stunned with the absolute beauty of the art, architecture and landscape. I loved my time in this part of Arizona and cannot wait to return.

Where did I stay in Scottsdale? at The Hotel Valley Ho. I loved the charm of this iconic location and the best view of Camelback mountain for sunrise and sunset from the 8th floor rooftop.

Why was I visiting Scottsdale?

For the 2016 Travel Classics West Writers Conference. I was honored to participate in “The World’s Most Exclusive Conferences for Professional Travel Writers and Editors.” I learned so much from the morning panel discussions and the afternoon one-on-one meetings with editors were fantastic. We had many marvelous meals, excursions and explored Scottsdale with new friends.
