Hey ScoNo fans! I just stumbled upon this really cool article about a study from Washington State University and it made me think of you all. It’s about something I bet you’ll find super interesting, especially because you’re all about Scottsdale North. I meet loads of people who are crazy about this place and always chatting it up. Now, here’s something extra for you to tell those snowbird friends why they should live here (at least the ones you want around).
For anyone who loves the Scottsdale North life as much as we do, this study is spot on. It talks about how awesome it is for our mental and physical health to live near nature, which we get to enjoy every day. It’s not just that our area looks amazing; it actually does us good too, especially for folks who are tired of the busy city life.
Think about sharing this with your winter guests: the allure of Scottsdale North extends far beyond its mesmerizing landscapes. There’s solid scientific evidence that our natural surroundings are actively contributing to our health. The McDowell Sonoran Preserve is a prime example, with its expansive 30,200 acres of pristine desert. It offers more than just a backdrop for hiking and outdoor activities; it’s a cornerstone for a lifestyle that nurtures both body and spirit, fostering an environment of activity and connection.
And let’s not forget about the proximity to Tonto National Forest. This isn’t just any ordinary forest. It’s a massive 3.3 million-acre wonderland that offers more than just picturesque views and camping spots. It’s a gateway to an improved state of wellbeing, where every visit is a step towards better health.
What makes Scottsdale North even more special is the city’s commitment to preserving these natural spaces. The Desert Preservation Plan ensures that any urban development is in harmony with the natural surroundings. This careful planning means you’re living in a community that values sustainability and the environment.
But Scottsdale North is more than a nature lover’s paradise; it’s a vibrant hub for those seeking a lifestyle rich in social, athletic, and fun activities. The area is dotted with lifestyle communities, each uniquely designed to cater to a life of engagement and enjoyment. These communities are not just residential areas; they’re dynamic spaces where neighbors meet for morning jogs, weekend golf rounds, or community events. With state-of-the-art fitness centers, social clubs, and communal green spaces, residents find themselves part of a lively and active community that values wellbeing and togetherness. It’s a place where your social calendar is as green and lush as the surrounding landscapes, filled with opportunities for making connections and enjoying life to the fullest.
The lifestyle in Scottsdale North, influenced by its natural surroundings, encourages staying active and engaging with the community. There are events, programs, and even our upcoming Ashler Hills Park, all designed to enhance the community’s connection with nature and each other.
So next time your friends ask what’s so special about Scottsdale North, you can tell them it’s more than just a picturesque place to live. It’s a community that embraces nature, supports a healthy lifestyle, and aligns with the latest scientific findings on the benefits of living close to natural spaces. It’s a place that’s not just beautiful to look at but also beneficial for your health and wellbeing, enriched by a community that’s as active and vibrant as the environment itself.
