Sculpted through the desert and framed by distant mountain peaks, Wickenburg Country Club's 18-hole course roams across 6,320 yards of dazzling terrain. Fresh off an October 2011 overseeding, the course's fairways, greens, and tee boxes blanket the arid terrain with a thick carpet of immaculately mown grass stitched by palm trees, intervening waterways, and tumbleweeds that generously lead golfers to wayward balls. The course bounds over naturally undulating terrain that creates numerous uphill and downhill shots, which gives an advantage to players who trust their yardages and can handle sidehill lies. After rounds, players can continue honing their game at the driving range, check out golf apparel at the pro shop, or drink in views of the rolling, sandstone-hued tundra amid the adobe accents of the clubhouse patio, where clubbers can recapitulate memorable shots or interrogate each other's 9-irons about the veracity of their owners' scorecard.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 71 course * Length of 6,320 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 70.5 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 128 from the farthest tees * Three tee options * Link to scorecard

Desert Caballeros Western Museum traces its origins back to 1960, when local leaders including Barry Goldwater and H. K. MacLennan founded the non-profit "to collect and preserve the history, learning, lore and mementos incident to the development of Wickenburg and the Arizona Territory." What started as a small-town museum blossomed into a regional institution full of artifacts of the Old West and Arizona culture. Thanks to the tireless work of local historians and curators, as well as hundreds of volunteers, the Desert Caballeros Western Museum draws droves of visitors to Wickenburg with its insightful art collections, historical exhibits, and hands-on learning opportunities.

Visitors can take in the picturesque landscape of the nearby Boyd Ranch as they converse with real-life cowboys and horses, or decorate their homes with paintings and sculptures made by Western women at the Cowgirl Up! exhibition. Regular exhibits enrich minds of all ages, dazzling guests with intricate artwork and pottery, the natural beauty of the gem collection, and the tiny, tiny people living inside the historical dioramas.

Cowboy Way Adventures’ veteran wranglers traverse this vast landscape and know the wilds of Arizona almost as well as they know the muscular steeds they captain. To introduce others to the untamed beauty of the Arizona countryside, they match riders with compatible horses and lead guided trail rides.

After pairing each guest with a steed that moonlights as a cattle horse and occasional lounge singer, the wranglers take parties through the pine-filled Prescott mountains, trotting alongside rocky cliffs and through the Verde River. Riders in Wickenburg wander down Sonoran Desert trails, past saguaro cacti and sandy washes that lick the bases of soaring cliffs. Those in Sedona follow red-dirt cattle trails before circling back to the stables, guided by the windmill in the distance.

Wranglers ensure a comfortable yet exciting journey that allows beginners to saunter along and advanced equestrians to gallop up hills and naturally occurring escalators.

Since its founding in 1934 by archetypal cowboy Roy Rogers and a group of like-minded cowpeople, the Sons of the Pioneers have sung classic compositions chronicling life in the Old West to audiences worldwide—earning them entry into the Country Music Hall of Fame and National Cowboy Hall of Fame. A veritable Supreme Court of country music, the sextet's rotating lineup of members perform for several decades before retiring, and a mandatory majority vote from the Senate is required for new cowboy singers. The venerable current roster still burns through fiddle and guitar strings like undomesticated flames fanned by the mellifluous breeze of six-part harmonies. In keeping with the authentic music and Western themes, the Sons of the Pioneers encourages audiences to applaud the performance with hearty "yee-haws," but asks them to refrain from firing six-shooters wildly into the air.

It all started with a youth sports organization. Champions of Wickenburg Youth, or COWY for short, supports youth athletic programs and helps instill traits in youngsters, such as discipline, teamwork, and perseverance. But they need money to do so. That's where Wickenburg's Wild West Run comes in. The run, now in its second year, raises funds for the organization while encouraging the health and fitness of its participants. During the run, participants sprint along an undulating course that affords them views of the rugged landscape. Afterward, they gather in Sunset Park for the afterparty, which includes games and lively discussions about what the K in 5K might stand for.

Even in the 21st Century, flying a jet pack still seems unattainably futuristic—right up until the moment you visit AZ Flyboard Rentals. There, thrill-seekers strap into water-propelled flying machines, rocketing to heights of up to 40 feet in the air and diving below the water’s surface like a dolphin strapped to a jet pack. The machines themselves do not require gas to perform—they run strictly on H2O, blasting it through hoses to aquatic adventurers upward, downward, and side-to-side. Even the uninitiated can pull off acrobatic feats after a brief introduction from one of the company’s trained and licensed operators. Most folks are typically up and flying within 10 minutes.
