In 1966, Chuck Mabery bought a cattle ranch that dated back to the late 19th century, planting the seeds of the Blazin' M Ranch. After stints herding and growing vegetables, the flood of 1993 forced the Mabery family to start over, inspiring them to show off their musical talents at a traditional chuck-wagon dinner staged on the property. Fully renovated in 2010, the ranch now hosts an authentic Arizona frontier town where visitors can experience the cowboy life through such activities as lassoing mechanical steers, shooting wax bullets out of a real Colt .45, and learning how to easily covert ten-gallon hats into metric. A selection of shops fits customers out in Western-themed apparel, the copper Spur Saloon serves local wines and microbrews, and a museum delves into the history of the ranch, pioneer-era Arizona, and the Yavapai-Apache Nation. An old-time photo studio, "Pistols and Petticoats", allows groups to have their likeness captured while wearing Victorian costumes. At the museum, the unique Wood'n West Gallery enthralls visitors with moving dioramas of Western life, hand carved over 30 years by a master whittler.

There are a lot of words one can use to describe barbecue sauce. Some are sweet, some spicy, and some tangy. But at the AZ Rhythm & Ribs festival, only one adjective matters: best. The KCBS Competition takes all comers, restaurant and solo operation alike, to vie for the best barbecue title in the categories of chicken, pork ribs, pork, and beef brisket. Other awards include best dry beans, best sauce, best dessert, and the Anything Goes award, given to a chef who makes the best side dish. Guests vote for their choice with samples—some included with entry—and cleanse their palate between bites with micro-brewed beers from all over the country. Meanwhile, country and southern rock stars make tunes as zesty as the savory stars of the show.

Held annually on Jackpot Ranch, the Verde Valley Fall Festival celebrates the advent of autumn with three days of family-friendly activities and seasonal treats. Thousands of pumpkins and gourds await plucking from the patch's vines, hayrides whisk passengers across the private ranch's grounds, and live musicians keep toes tapping on the dance floor more effectively than automated tap-shoes. As kids of all ages gambol about carnival rides, a youngster zone offers up age-appropriate attractions, and adults pluck favorite brews from the beer garden and wash palates with tastings from local wineries. More local merchants hawk wares such as handmade crafts, jewelry, and art, while tasty snacks from restaurants such as Johnny Rockets, Babe's Round Up, and Zainey's Yogurt reenergize guests throughout the fest.

Hundreds of animals from around the world roam the spacious, natural habitats on Out of Africa Wildlife Park’s 104 acres. Tours of the Wildlife Preserve jaunt past gray wolves and spotted hyenas, while a 30-minute African Bush Safari travels through a 22-acre high-desert-plains habitat where lions and tigers roam the hillside. Caretakers, colorful toys, and brain-tickling games of chess entertain Bengal and Siberian tigers in the Tiger Splash’s 35'x50' pool. Guests eager to interact with the park’s critters can hold anacondas and boas at the Giant Snake Show or tag along with caretakers feeding lions and tigers with 800 pounds of raw food.

ParaToys Arizona’s powered-paragliding pilots spirit passengers into the sky in four-wheeled tandem paragliders. After a thorough safety briefing, student and instructor buckle into a BlackHawk LowBoy tandem quad paraglider, a two-seated aviation machine with a low center of gravity that keeps the vehicle stable. An engine, similar to that of an airboat or a tricycle fitted with an airboat engine, fills the attached parachute with air, lifting the pair of aeronauts off their feet. As guests take in panoramic views of the Arizona landscape, soaring at up to 28 miles per hour, the pilot explains flying techniques before handing off the controls. Passengers steer the aeronautical go-kart as the airborne expert offers helpful tips on how to pick up midair snacks from passing commercial airliners.

The Prescott Wedding Walk lets pairs of paramours promenade through one of Arizona's most historic towns while browsing vendor booths, open houses, giveaways, bridal demonstrations and displays, and specialty boutiques and shops—all while basking in a connubial atmosphere that would make even the gloomiest of nimbus clouds brighten into a puffy cumulus. Brides-to-be can take in "Marvel," a red-carpet fashion show followed by Spring Bling Bridal Happy Hour at the Hassayampa Inn, while future hubbies can take refuge in a guy's mini-getaway at the Firehouse Kitchen. Though a questionable first-date option, the Prescott Wedding Walk lets seasoned soulmates work out the particulars of their Big Day and score discounts and free stuff in the process.
