Listen to our Destination Spotlight on Scottsdale

Rachel Sacco, CEO
Experience Scottsdale

America is made up of so many special areas, unique communities and places offering experiences you just won’t find elsewhere.  The Southwestern U.S. is vastly different than what you’ll find in the Northeast, Northwest, Southeast or Mid-West — and Scottsdale nicely epitomizes our popular “Destination Spotlight” series with all that it offers, while being a place we don’t hesitate in saying is worthy of your travel dollars.

We last showcased Scottsdale back in 2019, and nearly 5 years later felt it was time for a check-in.  During the 16 March 2024 live national broadcast of America’s #1 Travel Radio Show that’s exactly what we made happen…  From discussing its resort scene, ample golf options, Cactus League baseball, vast arts and culture offerings, outdoor activities and more — our conversation with Experience Scottsdale CEO Rachel Sacco was quick, but offered up many enticements for you to visit.

Now that the program has been broadcast via satellite to our national network of now 575+ weekly stations airing RMWorldTravel with Robert & Mary Carey and Rudy Maxa across the USA, you can hear the interview again by clicking on the play arrow immediately following this text …



As our “Destination Spotlight” continues to feature lesser known locations that we feel are worthy of your travels — on the 5 October 2019 broadcast of America’s #1 Travel Radio Show we showcased our 53rd city, located in the 48th state in our nation, often referred to as “The West’s Most Western Town” — Scottsdale, Arizona.  Located less than 15 miles from Phoenix (DS #38 – 19 Jan 19), Scottsdale offers travelers of every season something a little different.  If you’re a sports fan — Scottsdale has you covered.  If you enjoy arts and culture — Scottsdale has you covered.  If luxury resorts are your thing — Scottsdale has you covered.  Scottsdale is also a fun place to visit if you want to experience their wine trail, popular Botanical Garden, Old Town District (hint: this area links to origin of their nickname), Arabian Horses, Barrett-Jackson Car Auctions, a number of destination focused events and festivals and more.  To hear their tourism CEO Rachel Sacco discuss her city from the full interview that ran across our RMWorldTravel national network of 410 affiliates, and is now archived here on our website — just click the play button below …
