You still have time to get away for a weekend of fun before the kids start back to school. So why not head to the White Mountains in Sunrise where the average temperatures in August are a high of 72 °F with a low of 47° F?
You’ll find a long check list of family fun activities at the Sunrise Resort. The kids will definitely want to experience Arizona’s longest single zip line, and so will mom and dad. The line is over 2,300 feet long with a birds-eye view of the surrounding mountains and Ponderosa Pine Forest. If that’s not thrilling enough, try the other lines that include free falls from platform to ground, a tandem line that exceeds 45 mph, or fly along a 75’ suspension bridge while dangling a mere 70’ off the ground.
Is the zipline a little to edgy for your comfort zone? No worries, free fall from a 30’ platform into an inflated 50×50 foot airbag for a free fall sensation!
Mountain bikers can lift their mounts to the top of the mountain and ride down beginner, advanced or expert trails for a ride of their life.
Does it still sound a little too racy for your style? Well then, the perfect experience would be the scenic lift ride that whisks visitors to the top of Sunrise Mountain for lunch in the café with a leisurely and calm ride down while enjoying the mountain views and limitless blue sky.
There are plenty of other outdoor activities like, fishing, and horseback riding.
Take your neighbors to qualify for group pricing, take your sunscreen and camera and head out before the summer leaves you in its tracks.
Oh and the weather can be quite cool in Sunrise so don’t forget your jacket!
