At the north end you’ll find Fashion Square with all the familiar named stores as well as boutiques and restaurants. You will also find Wonderspaces AZ which features art for everyone with interactive exhibits that change frequently.
You may pass the Scottsdale Waterfront to reach Marshall Way where you’ll pass some of Scottdale’s most historic sites. In the early 1900’s the area was mostly residential with homes, schools and housing for war workers and military families. When Scottsdale was incorporated in 1951 and tourism and businesses started to boom, many areas were razed to make way for shops, galleries and restaurants.
Among the art along Marshall Way you’ll see Herb Migney’s “Passing the Legend” bronze tribute to the Hashknife Pony Express, Bob Parks’ Horse Fountain at Marshall and Fifth Avenue, John Randall Nelson’s “One-Eyed Jack,” and Michael Maglich’s “Horseshoe Falls” at Marshall and Main Street. There are many great art stops along Marshall Way including fine art galleries and independent art studios.
