One of the best parts of living in Arizona is being able to play outside all year round. Play in the lake during the heat of the summer, or enjoy weather that is mild enough to take a desert Segway tour in the dead of winter. Arizona is one of the best places to live for those who love to enjoy the great outdoors and have an itch for adventure.
Below we have highlighted just a few of the many ways to enjoy outdoor adventure near Fountain Hills, in addition to all of the hiking, golfing, and bike paths in the area.

The desert vistas will take your breath away on this peaceful outdoor adventure.
Desert Dog Off Road Adventures
Take a 4×4 through the beautiful scenery with Desert Dog Off Road Adventures. They offer tours through what some call the Arizona Outback in H1 Hummers, H2 Hummers, ATVs, and sand buggies.

You can even book a BBQ to enjoy a hearty and delicious meal after your ride.
Adventures Out West Segway Tours
One of the best ways to enjoy winter in Arizona is by getting outside. While the rest of the country is bundled up inside, Arizonians enjoy mild warm weather that is perfect for hiking, biking, and segway tours. Okay, we know that last one might not be what comes to mind, but with Adventures Out West Segway Tours you can enjoy the beautiful Sonoran Desert in a totally unique way from a Segway. Tours run from November through April, when the weather is warm enough to enjoy being outside before the Arizona summer really heats things up.
