-- Guests enjoy visiting the town of CAREFREE with its beautiful homes, awesome boulders, shopping and many restaurants.

-- Those guests who enjoy hiking like the CAVE CREEK area. The Spur Cross Ranch Conservation Area encompasses 2,154 acres of diverse, rugged upper Sonoran Desert which contains fascinating archaeology sites and lush riparian areas along Cave Creek, which flows throughout the winter months. This area is a must see for all wildflower lovers in the spring. The abundant vegetation provides a rich habitat for diverse wildlife. Remnants of early mining and ranching are still apparent in the park.

-- Cave Creek Regional Park offers over 11 miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. Park trails range in difficulty from easy to difficult. Only minutes from the trailhead, it seems as though you're in another world. The feeling is especially striking just after sunrise, when in the early-morning light the only sounds you hear are the warbling of wrens and the chatter of quail.

-- With a name like FOUNTAIN HILLS, of course there is a fountain. But not just any fountain. Built more than 30 years ago, this dramatic landmark is a centerpiece of the town in Fountain Park. The fountain is located in the middle of a man-made 28-acre lake in the heart of Fountain Hills. One of the world's highest fountains, the 560-foot tall plume of water, shoots to the sky and is visible for many miles.

-- At FORT MCDOWELL, there is a popular casino. You can experience the wild west at "Fort McDowell Adventures" just minutes from one of the biggest cities in the country. Located on the 25,000 acre Yavapai Indian Reservation, you can enjoy horseback riding and cattle drives. "Saguaro Lake Ranch Trail Rides" in the Tonto National Forest lets you experience the "Old West" on trails that take you on saguaro cactus covered ridges, across and along the Salt River and up hills that overlook Saguaro Lake.

-- Enjoy boating and fishing? SAGUARO LAKE is close by! Saguaro Lake is one of the lakes closest to Phoenix. You can take a leisurely tour of Saguaro Lake on the Desert Belle PADDLE BOAT. Passengers learn about the desert, the lakes, the mountains, the flora and the fauna from the Captain as the tour takes them about 5 miles into the lake and back.
