Old Town Scottsdale, Arizona USA
Arizona
Fifth Avenue in Scottsdale, Arizona has been a mecca for winter visitors and shoppers from all over the world. Scottsdale is located to the immediate north and east of Phoenix, the state’s largest city, its capital and the sixth largest city in the United States. Scottsdale has a population of just over 200,000 people. The settlement of the area known as Scottsdale by Europeans, began in 1868 with the establishment of irrigation projects in the Salt River Valley. The town takes its name from one of the original owners of the property, a retired Army officer named Winfield Scott. He and his brother George Scott first farmed the area. It is largely a suburban community with both low cost and very expensive homes. The community is the home to a number of large hotel resorts. This panorama is taken in the Old Town section of Scottsdale at the corner of 5th Avenue and Scottsdale Road.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
