Enjoy Scottsdale, Arizona Like a Local: Cactus League Spring Training Stadium Guide

Catching some Spring Training action at Scottsdale Stadium, Cactus League home of the San Francisco Giants?

Make the most of the warm spring weather with some of the best nearby places Scottsdale has to offer:
Hiking Trail: Camelback Mountain is a Phoenix landmark that offers amazing views of the city below. Camelback is "a pretty tough climb" -- for an easier and scenic hike, head north to the McDowell Mountains at Lost Dog Trailhead.
City Park: Indian School Park, within walking distance of the stadium, has a shaded playground, basketball, tennis, and volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, and a paved walking path. There's also "ample seating area if you desire to have a party."
Disc Golf Course: Vista del Camino Park, west of Hayden on McDowell Road, has a disc golf course that's "mostly flat but it has a lot of water traps which make it as challenging as you want it to be."
Skate Park: Eldorado Park, north of McDowell on 77th Street, has a skate park, a lake, a walking path, and more.
Place to learn about Native American culture: Huhugam Ki Museum, east of the 101 on Indian School Road, on the land of the Salt River Pima–Maricopa Indian Community, is open weekdays.
Mexican Food: Old Town Scottsdale has all kinds of dining options, most of them touristy yet tasty. No matter where you eat, make sure to save room for dessert at the Sugar Bowl, a kitschy ice cream parlor straight out of the 1950s - south of Indian School Road on Scottsdale Road.
