Paradise Valley – Camelback Inn – Less than 2 Hour Journey from Tucson

Every year my family and I take a 3 day weekend journey to Camelback Inn (Marriott Resort) in late September just before the  hotel rates go up in October.  We like the Scottsdale BMW dealer. So we couple a little getaway with our car being serviced.  This year, like the last two years of the same getaway to Camelback Inn, was quite enjoyable.  The setting is somewhat like our own in the Foothills of Tucson. We live at Sabino Mountain which is minutes away from Canyon Ranch, which to be perfectly honest, offers even a prettier setting than the Camelback Inn which is gorgeous!  Every year we come back, re-connecting with our beautiful community and embracing the rare gem of a community we reside in. The temperature is lower in the Tucson Foothills than Paradise Valley or Scottsdale; the mountains are higher and greener and the home prices are much less than Paradise Valley.  At the end of the trip I always scratch my head and say, “Why are more people not moving to  the Tucson – Catalina Foothills area– instead of Scottsdale and Paradise Valley?” I guess in some ways I should be happy since more people moving here would lead to congestion. Maybe we should keep our good thing quiet!
