- Old Town/Downtown Scottsdale/Fashion Square, a chic region strewn with galleries, bars and restaurants, and the site of many new luxury condos and townhomes
- Shea Corridor, a central Scottsdale neighborhood full of showcase homes that often feature in TV shows and movies, and
- North Scottsdale, the biggest and most pricey Scottsdale neighborhood, location of most of the city's many golf courses.
Since Scottsdale is a part of the greater Phoenix area, Scottsdale is also not far from the neighboring suburbs of Surprise, Glendale, and Tempe.
