Home to more than 265,249 people, Scottsdale is the 5th largest city in Arizona and the 82nd largest in the U.S. Most of the workforce of Scottsdale is in the tourism industry. The city has one of the highest numbers of AAA Five-Diamond hotels and resorts in the country and is home to many renowned spas and resorts including the Four Seasons Scottsdale and Canyon Suites.

Scottsdale's climate, as well as retail facilities, dining, nightlife, and more than 50 golf courses, are what attract visitors from all over. There are many top employers within the city, including Honor Health, CVS Health, Scottsdale Unified School District, Vanguard, and the City of Scottsdale.
