The American Dream Travels To Scottsdale
Recently, the American Dream’s very own Kara Kay had the amazing opportunity to explore Scottsdale, Arizona. Whether you’ve heard or read about Scottsdale—or even visited it—nothing can quite compare to the inside look Kara received during her trip.
And now we’re sharing that inside look with you!
To begin her adventure, Kara met up with realtors Dave and Kim Panozzo—better known as the “Panozzo Team” of Homesmart. To get the day started, Dave and Kim had an amazing surprise in store for Kara: a hot air balloon ride! With the help of Rainbow Ryders, who have safely been flying for over 35 years, Kara was able to see first-hand the breathtaking views of the massive, peaceful desert below.
“I had to wake up before the sun came up—but it was totally worth it!” Kara exclaimed.
We can’t help but take a moment to reflect on Kara’s words. After all, when discussing the American Dream—however that dream may look for you—it’s important to understand that dedication and hard work will always be involved. Regardless of the goal, you’re always going to have to put in effort.
Moral of this story: Never be afraid to wake up before the sun comes up!
Next, Dave and Kim continued their tour of Scottsdale, leading Kara on an exploration of fun, entertaining, and active things do to throughout the city . . . like hiking!
With many different sites to choose from, all with something beautiful and different to offer, Dave took Kara to Pinnacle Peak, where she learned a variety of species are attracted to the great outdoors—even the creepy critter types! (Do yourself a favor and watch the video!)
The next morning, it was time for some coffee . . . and cars!
To show just how versatile Scottsdale truly is, Kim invited Kara to Cars and Coffee, a Scottsdale motorsports gathering that is held the first Saturday of every month from 7 to 10 AM at the Scottsdale Shopping Center. This event attracts a broad variety of high performance, exotic, sports, and collector cars ranging from the latest vehicles to pre-war classics. In any given month, visitors can expect to see Ferraris, Lamborghinis, McLarens, Porsches, American muscle cars, and more.
Have you seen the latest SUV Lamborghini? (If you’ve seen this video you have!)
Then, Kara and Kim became ladies who lunch—and shop!
Scottsdale shopping is perfect for anyone and everyone: those who love the search for a specific item, as well as those who delight in the unadulterated pleasure of a leisurely browse. Specifically, there are shops for the more relaxed buyers and a collection of boutiques that cater to souvenir hunters.
Simply put, there is more to Scottsdale than people may initially think. It doesn’t matter if you plan on visiting the city or potentially even moving and creating a home there, you won’t be disappointed.
Kara was able to make a connection with Dave and Kim and get to know Scottsdale on a more intimate level thanks in large part to the American Dream. Remember, with the American Dream, all things are possible!
