      Outdoor Traveler Vacation in the Arizona Desert

      The Ideal Landscape for an Amazing Retreat

      If your ideal vacation entails awe-inspiring views, open-air activities and discovering nature’s true beauty, then the Arizona Desert is the perfect destination for you. From the vibrant sunsets and varying shades of orange and red dancing across the sky to the infinite natural wonders, such as the Sedona red rock formations and the Saguaro cactus in the Sonoran Desert, you will find yourself in a state of amazement and true bliss.

      The beautiful, natural settings lend themselves to creating an outdoor adventure oasis. Hike up trails on the McDowell Mountains, go horseback riding, grab some bikes and go cycling, or spend a day camping and roast some marshmallows. Plunge into Lake Pleasant for an afternoon of amusement and partake in exhilarating water sports from sailing or boating to water skiing and fishing. If you are a golf enthusiast, you will love playing a round of golf while in the Arizona Desert. With the spectacular landscape and the incredible weather, desert golf is incomparable. To get a taste of shopping and dining in the Arizona Desert, check out the West Valley where you can choose among many restaurants to please your palate or hunt for deals at local boutiques. Wherever the day takes you, be sure to bring your camera and take some photos! The picturesque views are breathtaking and you will want to capture them forever.

      Additional Amusement for your Enjoyment

      • Take your sight-seeing adventures to new heights in a hot air balloon expedition and see the spectacular views of the Arizona Desert from up above.
      • The Arizona Desert is home to the distinct and marvelous cactus plant. With so many variations and types, each cactus plant resembles a piece of art with its own unique intricacies. And don’t forget to check out the beautiful cactus flowers which appear in a rainbow of vibrant colors from the Prickly Pear Pink Cactus Flower to the burnt orange found in Aloe Vera Blooms.
      • If you’re a sports enthusiast, then you’ll definitely enjoy attending a game by one of Arizona’s professional sports teams.
