WHITE MOUNTAIN GETAWAY


Cool off with us this summer in Arizona’s beautiful White Mountains. This high-country destination offers scenery much like Canada or the Pacific Northwest; it is a land of thick pine forests, crystal mountain lakes, lush green meadows and abundant watchable wildlife. At elevations of 6,500 to 9,000 feet, and temperatures that average 30 degrees cooler than the Phoenix area, the White Mountains are a terrific getaway. This region is also home to ten sparkling lakes—our focus for this scenic driving tour—and we’ll explore as much as time allows.
Day One: We’ll leave the Valley with a stop for coffee & goodies in Payson, on our way to enjoy lunch on self in Heber, at The Red Onion. A true Kindred Tours favorite, The Red Onion is famous for their cheeseburgers,
homemade chili and daily lunch specials. After lunch it’s back on the bus and we’ll enjoy the most remarkable scenery on our way to Hon-Dah Casino Resort, our headquarters for the next two nights. Nothing fancy, the
Hon-Dah hotel rooms are clean and cozy, and buffet style dinner is included, at the Indian Pine Restaurant. After dinner we’ll enjoy a free evening. Check out the casino if you are so inclined, kick back with a cocktail in Spirits Bar, or enjoy the heated pool, spa or sauna.
Day Two: Breakfast is included at the hotel, and then it’s back on the bus and we’re off to explore the lakes of Arizona’s beautiful White Mountains. We’re keeping it scenic and easy, with a stop along the way for lunch on self. Late afternoon we’ll return to our hotel, where we’ll enjoy dinner, included, and another free evening.
Day Three: Breakfast is included at the hotel, and then it’s bags out and we’re on the bus headed for home. We’ll enjoy a scenic loop tour back to the Valley taking us through the Salt River Canyon, a 2,000-foot-deep river canyon, so gorgeous and loaded with history that it is often referred to as the Little Grand Canyon. This stretch of highway is broad and well-paved offering some of the most dramatic views ever seen from a bus window! We’ll make our way into Globe, where we’ll stop for lunch on self at Guayo’s Mexican Restaurant. After lunch it’s back on the bus, and we’ll hightail it for home with more great sights to enjoy along the way. This affordable tour includes so much! Don’t miss it. *This trip is offered in conjunction with Kindred Tours. This outside contractor does not currently have any vehicles which can accommodate persons who are non-ambulatory.

MURDER AND A MEAL @ AZ BROADWAY – HOW TO MURDER A MILLIONAIRE


All handsome, eligible Dirk Dagwell wanted was a bride, so off to cable access TV he went to be the latest schmuck on the morally bankrupt show How to Marry a Millionaire. It’s star – tacky host Remus Philbrick who would have been a better fit as a greasy nightclub comic on a cruise ship in 1972. The “lovely” bachelorettes invited onto the show to fight to win themselves a millionaire are Tanya, (who got on the sexy line twice and bypassed the brains line altogether); Carleen, (been there, shot that); and Darma (sweetie-perfection is annoying). Who will he choose to be his bride? And will it be the last choice he ever makes? Come join in the fun; maybe even be a part of the show. Murder & a Meal features a fun, theatrical story told by actors while participants enjoy a three course meal over a 2-hour period. Members of the audience become participants in the play as the story progresses. There are multiple breaks during the show, dinner include a soft beverage, salad, bread, entrée and dessert. Bar service and cocktails are available throughout the show from your service staff. The price does not include gratuity and there are mini envelopes if you would like to tip your server

SYCAMORE CANYON SCENIC DRIVE


Arizona is a land of deep canyons, with the Grand Canyon being the obvious largest, and Sycamore Canyon the second runner-up. The journey to Sycamore Canyon is spectacular—winding through the Kaibab National Forest, past thick stands of ponderosa pines and heart stopping views of the San Francisco Peaks. Sycamore Canyon is 21 miles long, and a protected wilderness area, with breathtaking scenery in every direction. There are no roads or campgrounds within the gorge, but plenty of sycamores, a variety of evergreens and wildlife galore. We’ll stop for lunch on self in Williams before heading into the Canyon—a town so charming that historic Route 66 is its Main Street—and you’ll have plenty of restaurants to choose from. This is a great summer tour! Get out of the heat and come with us. *This trip is offered in conjunction with Kindred Tours.

SOUTH RIM OF THE GRAND CANYON


The Grand Canyon, one of the most remarkable natural wonders in the world, is visited by millions of tourists annually. There are two public areas of Grand Canyon National Park, the North and South Rims, with the South Rim being the most accessible and visited, also offering the deepest and widest views of the Grand Canyon. Just a hop-skip-and-a-jump away, we’ll arrive at the South Rim with plenty of time to enjoy an early lunch at the restaurant of your choice. The South Rim offers many restaurant options—from fine dining at El Tovar, to the Maswik Food Court—you decide. After lunch we’ll jump on the South Rim shuttle bus to explore the most spectacular scenic views and other points of interest—many accessible only by shuttle. This is a remarkable one-day tour! We’ll leave the Valley with a stop for coffee and goodies, along with a few pit-stops on our way to the Grand Canyon.

SUNSET CRATER VOLCANO & WUPATKI NATIONAL MONUMENTS


Sunset Crater Volcano was created by a series of eruptions sometime between 1040 and 1100. Powerful explosions profoundly affected the lives of local people and forever changed the landscape and ecology of the area. Lava flows and cinders still look as fresh and rugged as the day they were formed. But among dramatic geologic features, you’ll find trees, wildflowers, and signs of wildlife. Explore an easy one-mile trail or enjoy the beauty of Sunset Crater from our picnic site where we’ll be serving refreshments. Later we’ll travel the scenic loop to Wupatki—the largest pueblo in the region. Less than 800 years ago Wupatki flourished as a meeting place of different cultures, despite its setting in one of the warmest and driest places on the Colorado Plateau, leaving us to wonder how and why—with no obvious food, water or comfort—did people live here. We’ll stop in historic downtown Flagstaff for lunch on self, before visiting these two remarkable National Monuments. Flagstaff is home to many wonderful restaurants, so there is sure to be something for everyone. *This trip is offered in conjunction with Kindred Tours.

THE FOUR LAKES OF PRESCOTT & WHISKEY ROW


There are four beautiful lakes in Prescott: Goldwater, Watson, Willow and Lynx. We’re going to visit them all, stopping first at Goldwater Lake, the jewel in the crown of the Prescott National Forest. From here we’ll head northeast to enjoy a spectacular driving tour of Watson and Willow Lakes. Known as the twin lakes, Watson and Willow are in the Granite Dells of Prescott, an area so scenic that it has seen more than its fair share of western movie shoots and was once home to the very popular Garden of the Gods Resort. An otherworldly stretch of gigantic boulders, Granite Dells runs along Granite Creek, with Watson and Willow Lakes sitting right in the middle making for the most remarkable of vistas. From here we’ll make our way to Lynx Lake, in the cool and pine-scented Bradshaw Mountains. So completely different from the twins, Lynx Lake is heavily wooded, and surrounded by tall Ponderosa pines, scrub oak and Manzanita. This lovely area is home to a wide variety of wildlife. We’ll be on the lookout for Albert’s squirrel, javelina, deer, and maybe even a mountain lion! We’ll begin this tour with lunch on self on Prescott’s famous Whiskey Row. Once a block of 40 saloons driven by the gold rush culture, Whiskey Row drew cowboys, gamblers, prospectors, bawdy girls and outlaws. Today Whiskey Row is home to not just its saloons, but also galleries, charming shops and antique stores and several wonderful restaurants. This is a refreshing summer tour.

AUGUST 28 • WEDNESDAY • KINDRED TOURS (FORMERLY TJ TRAVEL)
THE LAKES OF WILLIAMS & RED HAVEN


Williams is known as the gateway to the Grand Canyon, which sits just 60 miles to the north, and with Route 66 as its main drag, this town couldn’t be kitschier or more historic. Once a town offering mostly cheeseburgers and milkshakes, Williams is now home to an award-winning restaurant—Red Raven—offering an extensive, yet moderately priced menu. We’ll enjoy lunch on self and then spend some time exploring the downtown area—one of the best-preserved stretches of the Mother Road in America. After a quick stop at Pete’s Route 66 Gas Station Museum, we’ll jump back on the bus to explore the three lakes of Williams, beginning with lovely little Cataract Lake, just one mile out of town. From here we’ll travel to Kaibab Lake, 10 acres larger than Cataract and twice as deep. This beautiful alpine lake is settled into a cool and fragrant mountain forest, surrounded by wildlife. From here we’re off to explore Dogtown Reservoir, situated at the base of towering Bill Williams Mountain. This pretty forest lake got its name from the extensive prairie dog “towns” that once covered open areas near its shore. This scenic tour takes us deep into Arizona’s Kaibab National Forest on the Colorado Plateau. Escape the heat and join us! *This trip is offered in conjunction with Kindred Tours.
