America has always been the most extreme country, from the Boston Tea Punchings to having the first man swear on the moon. We hold this shredding guitar solo to be self-evident with this Groupon.
$42 for a Zipline Adventure ($85 Value)
After a jeep drive to the start of the course, guests are safely strapped into full body harnesses, helmets, and closed-toed shoes. They then peer over the edge of canyon walls and launch into the air for up to 650-foot-long ziplines. The lines, built to exceed labor-regulation standards, send guests soaring over red rocks and lush canyons as they soak in the sights.
Adventures Out West
Recommended by Frommer's travel guide, Adventures Out West leads guided excursions through the aerial spectacles of the Sonoran Desert's landscapes and environs. Smoothly ascending sunrise and sunset tours provide an easygoing and elevated trip through the panoramic desert and mountain terrain, which includes resilient flora such as saguaro cacti, palo verde trees, and distant mountain ranges assembled by packs of Paleolithic tailgaters. The wicker baskets float above vegetation and discreetly hover over animal habitats, with occasional views of coyotes, jackrabbits, desert mule deer, and javelinas. Each 100-foot balloon drifts at heights from just above treetop levels to 3,000 feet above the ground, carefully following wind currents to prevent turbulence and stay on the scent trail of musky airplane pilots.
Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
