2 days in Scottsdale next weekend. Things to do for summer.

We (2 adults & 2 kids (11 & 6) ) will be spending 2 weekend nights in Scottsdale. Since it is hot summer, we aren’t planning any outdoor trip but anything that can be done indoor, we can do that. Place we are staying (Phoenician) has a great pool, so we would be happy to be inside the water for a while.

Give us other family friendly things to do both in the evening and as well as in the day.

Musical Instrument Museum is unique and everyone we take has loved it. It is not just instruments and appeals to those who only have a passing interest in music of any kind. Most think they will do it for an hour or 2 and then end up being there 3-4 hours.

Another thing our kids enjoy doing are the go-karts and iFly. You can do those anywhere in the country so they aren't unique to the SW but it is indoors and fun! There are also a couple of dine in movie theaters.

Another vote for Musical Instrument Museum. You can easily spend a whole day there.

There is a science museum in downtown Phoenix, great for kids.

I have been to this aquarium on the east edge of Scottsdale and thoroughly enjoyed it:

There is also s smaller scale aquarium in Arizona Mills in South Tempe.
