    Scottsdale AZ

    Going to Scottsdale the end of next month for business. We will be there for six days and plan on going to the Grand Canyon and Sedona. Any other recommendations?

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

    While you're in Scottsdale, you might like to tour Frank Lloyd Wright's former home and studio, Taliesin West. It's gorgeous, and still used for architectural workshops and fellowships.

    If you haven't been to the desert much and appreciate learning about plant life and more a visit to the Phoenix Desert Botanical Gardens is great! It covers a lot of ground with paved trails, packed dirt trails and most trails are easy grades. It is a neighbor to the Dale so a quick drive.

    Taliesin West definitely but I did it when AB, it is terraced and not that accessible, check out the website first. You might find Sedona is similar, I never used to consider disabled access and can't recall what it was like. Scottsdale is a good place to be based, good restaurants and nightlife.

    It is terraced, but they've added ramps all over the property. The Taliesin West website features a great 3D tour that allows you to see all of it, orienting and moving through space with your mouse, just like on Google maps.

    One thing I noticed on the virtual tour was that a lot of the concrete is crumbling and there's gravel in some of the parking lots - so even though ramps technically make the property accessible, it looks like it would still be a challenge to negotiate in some areas.

    Here's a link to the tour: https://franklloydwright.org/3dlab/

    Scottsdale in late May is going to be pretty warm, expect mid 90s during the day and 70s at night. Generally, it is our rule not to visit the valley between April and October, but this year we are attending a wake in late April and we are concerned it will be a warm April this year. My sister lives in Mesa and she says it started heating up way too early.

    It's usually nice at the Grand Canyon in May, high 70s during the day and mid 30s at night.

    In Sedona, expect mid 80s during the day and low 60s at night.

    Local here I think Grand Canyon is over rated and not that accessible and its an all day trip back and forth from Scottsdale.

    Sedona is only 2 hours a way nice day trip.

    Check out Chapel in the Rocks.
