Windgate Ranch in Scottsdale offers many opportunities for recreational and entertainment options. Although it is tempting to stay home enjoy the beautiful views of the McDowell Mountains from your home in Windgate Ranch, there is so much to do and see nearby you could be busy every day. Are you a golfer? You can perfect your game or learn to play just 5 minutes away at the Grayhawk or Sanctuary Golf Clubs.
Are you an art buff or enjoy taking in shows? Just a 20 -minute drive and you can be to the Scottsdale Center for the Arts which hosts nearly 1,000 performances, events and art exhibits each year. In addition, Westworld is approximately 1 mile away and there you can see some amazing events such as the world renowned Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show, The Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction, Sun Country Horse Show, Scottsdale Polo Match and many, many more. There is an event there almost every weekend from October-April.
If you are a sports fan, then you can catch a Phoenix Suns, Arizona Diamondbacks, Phoenix Cardinals or Phoenix Coyotes game all less than an hour away from Windgate Ranch.
There is never a shortage of outdoor recreational activities in the area. Are you a hiker? Right across the street is the Gateway/ Tom’s Thumb trail, which has miles and miles of hiking trails. Pinnacle Peak Park and Lost Dog Trail are both within a 10 minute drive and are both challenging and beautiful options. Another great thing about Windgate Ranch is the close proximity to the Valley’s lakes. Its about a 30 minute drive to Bartlett Lake and recreation area and equally about a 30 minute drive to Saguaro Lake. There you can rent boats, jet skis, picnic at Butcher Jones Cove and tube down the Salt River. The great outdoors is yours for the taking when you live in North Scottsdale.
Maybe none of the above interests you. How about shopping? There is no shortage of options of fun things to do in Windgate Ranch. Head out for a day of shopping, dining, and entertainment at the exclusive Scottsdale Quarter or Kierland Shops, both within a 15 minute drive. A little further up the road you can indulge all of your senses at the upscale Fashion Square Mall, where you will find just about any store you are looking for. With the newest addition of a movie theater and several new restaurants, the whole family will be occupied for hours.
