Scottsdale's McCormick Ranch is one of the largest planned communities in Arizona, as well as one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Scottsdale. This upscale community is home to two championship 18-hole golf courses (McCormick Ranch Golf Club's Palm Course and Pine Course), more than 25 miles of bicycle paths, parks, public tennis courts and seven man-made lakes.
McCormick Ranch is home to top fine dining destinations, including Roka Akor, an upscale Japanese steakhouse and sushi restaurant. For an elegant dinner that brings the flavors of France to the dinner, Bistro du Lac offers continental classics with a lakeside view. For happy hour with friends, elevated comfort food and hip ambiance to spare, head to The Vig McCormick Ranch.
McCormick Ranch in Scottsdale is both scenic and conveniently located, so it's no surprise it's home to many popular hotel resorts. The McCormick Scottsdale (formerly Millennium Resort and Villas Scottsdale) offers gorgeous lakeside views, tennis, golf and recently renovated guest suites. For a more boutique stay closer to downtown, head south a bit to FireSky Resort & Spa.
McCormick Ranch is convenient to Scottsdale's most modern shopping destinations, including the Scottsdale Quarter (home to retailers like Restoration Hardware, lululemon, Warby, West Elm and Pottery barn). Another good option nearby is Kierland Commons, an open-air shopping center featuring Crate & Barrel, Z Gallerie, Barnes & Noble, Victoria's Secret, Anthropologie, and Sur la Table.
