Snowbirds Drawn to the Scottsdale Area for Hockey

Canadians make up a large percentage of the Phoenix and Scottsdale seasonal residents. In fact, the Canada Arizona Business Council estimated that around 872,000 phoenix coyotes hockeyCanadians come to Arizona each year and spend hundreds of millions of dollars. Most of these visitors come to the Phoenix and Scottsdale area. What makes Phoenix and Scottsdale so appealing to our neighbors up north? Aside from the mild temperatures and the low housing prices, hockey is one of the major attractions for snowbirds.

Often, the Phoenix Coyotes will play a Canadian team so those fans will follow and come down for a visit. They get the best of both worlds, sunshine and hockey all in one place. The Jobing.com Arena has just recently acquired a Tim Horton’s to cater to their Canadian visitors. They have also scheduled a rock concert called CanadaFest in March and we are looking forward to more events in the future.
