Voyage Vixens headed to the Beverly Hills of the Sonoran Desert to create a sophisticated + sexy + sizzling Scottsdale, Arizona travel guide. We discovered Scottsdale offers more than meets the eye including Arizona wine, Frank Lloyd Wright architecture, artisan eats, mystical spa treatments and scenic adventures. Lindsay’s interest led her to horseback riding and slinging mud on an ATV while Lanee headed for quirky culture sights like Cosanti and James Turrell’s skyscape at Museum of Contemporary Arts. They joined forces in Scottsdale, Arizona for hikes on Camelback and Summit Trail, relishing in Montelucia’s Hamman spa, tequila tasting at the Phoenician and fireside chats at Hermosa Inn.
