The term “Old Town” has been loosely applied to the larger “downtown” area of Scottsdale for some time now. However, many who use it casually don’t realize that Old Town is a very specific and much smaller area.
Scottsdale’s “Downtown Districts” include
- Fashion Square
- The Waterfront
- 5th Ave. Shops & Boutiques
- Scottsdale Arts District
- Entertainment District (aka, The Bar District, which has caused so much controversy of late)
- Brown & Stetson Businesses
- Civic Center Mall
- And of course the Old Town District, which is from Indian School Road south to 2nd Street, Scottsdale Road east to Buckboard Trail, which largely defines the original town boundaries.
