Virtual Art Tour: Not getting to Denmark this summer? Fortunately, a piece of it is coming to the Valley, in the form of Scottsdale Artists’ School’s Summer Art Lectures. Anthropologist Per Schelde will lead the July 16 “tour” of Danish islands and artwork, while the August 13 lecture will explore the chalk hills of Normandy and the region’s famed Impressionists. $10.

 Surf ‘n’ Scarf: Want to finally learn to surf this summer? The closest, possibly easiest option is in Laguna Beach at Surf & Sand Resort, which is offering a surf-camp-for-two overnight package that also includes breakfast or lunch for two, right outside the Southern California town’s beginner-friendly breaks. $729/night.

Staycation Redux: An addendum to our staycay blowout preview in the June issue: The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch is ponying up a pretty nice deal with its Rock Your Staycation promo, featuring a $30 daily resort credit, two $25 vouchers for its spa and reduced resort fees, all under the umbrella of $97 room rates.
