We get why you’re planning a Scottsdale Stagette. The weather, the nightlife, the hotties – what’s not to love?
But we fit so much fun into our Western town – you’d be surprised how overwhelmed you can get trying to fit it all into one weekend.
That’s why we’re here! We know the Scottsdale activities industry like the back of our hand, so let us help you plan the perfect Scottsdale Hen Party. Here are all the tips, recommendations and experiences we recommend as you plan your big Scottsdale stagette!
Getting To Your Scottsdale Hen Party
Transportation from the Airport
Luckily, the drive from the Phoenix International Airport to Scottsdale is only about 15 minutes. The Uber price won’t be astronomical, and if you decide to rent a car, it’ll be an easy transition to Old Town.
One tip we have for large groups that don’t want to split up? Take advantage of Top Notch Transportation, Scottsdale’s local limo and large van service! Everyone can stick together, and best of all, no confusing ride share price splitting.
Transportation around town
Once you’re in town (especially if you find accommodations in the heart of Old Town), a lot of the transportation you will do can be some good ol’ walking! There are tons of bars, restaurants, brunch spots and more within these few blocks.
But where your feet can’t take you, ride shares and (no joke) golf carts can! These fun late-night golf carts are there to take you where you need to go when the last thing you should be doing is get behind the wheel. Take advantage of this extra fun and cheap transport!
