Guests of Hotel Valley Ho and anyone else interested in the history and stories behind some of Old Town’s most iconic pieces of public art can now join the hotel’s new Insider Public Art Tour.
Launching this month, the tour is led by local expert Ace Bailey and takes participants on a journey through one of the best public art programs in the country. Kicking off at the hotel, the walking tour lasts about two hours and showcases many of the permanent pieces and installations on display in Old Town Scottsdale. Not only will art-curious guests get to peek at and learn about the sweet art, they’ll also get a sweet bite at Super Chunk Sweets & Treats.
