Family Friendly Events In and Around Scottsdale {March 2020}

March means Spring Break, Spring Training and all kinds of fun events around town.  This is the month that everyone comes flocking to visit our beautiful city for all that it has to offer.  There’s a lot of family friendly fun to be found in and around Scottsdale.  This list has a little bit of everything and is jammed packed with fun.  Read it over, pick what your family would want to do most and get out there and make some memories.  Choose carefully what you plan to do and don’t forget to leave margin for the best family friendly event of all…relaxing and spending time together to connect and grow.  That’s when the best memories are made.
