After a revelatory trip to Grand Teton, Yellowstone, and Glacier National Parks in 2006, outdoor enthusiasts Laura and Alan Falk cast off the shackles of software careers to begin new lives as tour guides and planners. The pair created standard tours to introduce travelers to the area's local wineries, gorges, waterfalls, and historic towns, as well as custom tours that let natives and visitors design their own experiences based on personal preferences and hunches about the location of buried treasure. Past custom tours have included birthday scavenger hunts, bachelorette weekends, and private birthday celebrations with wine tastings. Experience! The Finger Lakes draws on more than 30 years of intimate local knowledge to create lasting memories in a thriving area replete with natural beauty, rich culture, and a captivating history.
At Adams Eden, summer camp isn't just for youngsters. The family-owned establishment welcomes adventurers of all ages to its 328 acres of undulating greenery where activities on land and air abound. Anyone with day passes can partake in hiking, boating, and volleyball, or explore the mountain meadow maze. Overnight guests have their pick of lodgings that include a sprawling lodge, a cozy cabin, a rustic platform tent, or camp sites equipped with fire pits and picnic tables.
Clasped between Saguaro National Park and the Ironwood Preserve, Double R Ranch appears as though it were plucked straight from the frames of an old Western movie. The windswept grounds stand as a gateway to the thousands of untouched acres that quietly stitch together the Northwest side of Tucson. The ranch gives visitors a chance to explore that land with horseback rides and birthday parties. It also offers weekend getaways and RV hookups to city-dwellers in need of an escape from the crowds and door-to-door minivan salesmen that come with urban living. Double R also accommodates guests who have their own horses with overnight stabling services.
The Henrietta Moose Family Center and NaberHood Haunts, under their pavilion, opens their doors to reveal seasonal conversions. Thrill-seekers will move through the center's spooky hallways, testing their nerves against hiding actors, fog machines, strobe lights, and total darkness. Thrill-seekers can also test their skills at zombie paintball. In addition to the regular spooking hours, the center also hosts a special event for kids on the afternoon of October 19 from 1-3 p.m., where brave young souls can experience the fun with the lights on and all horrifying lima beans hidden from sight.
All proceeds from the haunted house will benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Rochester, Moose Charities, the Make a Wish Foundation, and the Henrietta Food Cupboard.
