Shea - Scottsdale

Shea-Scottsdale is a neighborhood in Scottsdale Arizona. Until the 1960s the area was devoid of much of the vibrancy it has now but the influx of businesses around the intersection of Scottsdale Road and Shea Boulevard has made it develop into a full-blown commercial center. It is regarded as one of the greatest commercial intersections in Scottdale. The people of the community, those who own businesses, and those who work there are generally kind and welcoming. The area is children and pet friendly with a dog park available.
