Join Emmy-winning author and travel expert Theresa Goodrich in an exploration of Scottsdale, Arizona.

Scottsdale is known for spring training and golf courses, but it offers a whole lot more than sports. In this presentation, you’ll learn why this desert landscape inspired the likes of Paolo Soleri and Frank Lloyd Wright. With hiking, kayaking, a bustling viniculture scene, and ever-present reminders of the Old West, you’ll meet the captivating allure of this Arizona city.

Theresa L. Goodrich is an Emmy-winning author and content creator with a penchant for storytelling and a keen eye. She’s the founder and publisher of  The Local Tourist and Your Chicago Guide, and author of the Two Lane Gems book series, Living Landmarks of Chicago, and contributor to Midwest Road Trip Adventures. She’s a featured speaker for the Travel and Adventure Show and teaches the Midwest Travel Network Writer’s Workshop. She’s slightly obsessed with Chicago, history, and road trips. When she’s not writing, speaking, or on the road, she’s cooking and planning her next adventure. Follow her at theresalgoodrich.com.

Armchair Travels is generously funded with a gift from the Rutherford Family Trust.
