How to find Arizona time share presentations
When the economy was robust, timeshare promotions were a great way to experience a destination location while making a property decision.
In today's economy there are still a few discount timeshare presentations in Arizona, especially Scottsdale and Sedona. But, since the industry has changed its structure, Arizona's timeshare deals are often called something different now by the sponsors.
Hotels and resorts that once brought time shares into a new way to share ownership, now offer cheaper discount packages for short-term get-a-ways at a portion of the price of a timeshare.
The popular traditional timeshare companies like Diamond, Club Wyndham and Marriott Vacation Club still offer presentations for free trial stays and memberships, but are steering consumers to less restrictive promotions.

Sedona's red rocks a lure
Arizona in the summer is not as severe as imagined. Most people golf in the morning, lounge inside in the afternoons (the malls, the pool, etc.) and spend the evenings out on the town.
Sedona, Arizona is well known for its mystic aura and red rock mountains. Sedona is fast becoming a hot spot in the northern part of the state where the weather is milder. Sedona timeshares are more affordable than higher end Scottsdale.
Scottsdale is an upscale community just west of Phoenix. Scottsdale is one of the state's most popular vacation destinations. The Scottsdale timeshare market has also largely become a vacation rental market instead.
In Southern Arizona, Tucson is a more affordable vacation destination with many resorts offering better promotions than timeshare obligations.
