$399 (Based Upon Double Occupancy) $100 (Single Supplement)
Cool off with us this summer in Arizona’s beautiful White Mountains. This high-country destination offers scenery much like Canada or the Pacific Northwest; it is a land of thick pine forests, crystal mountain lakes, lush green meadows and abundant watchable wildlife. At elevations of 6,500 to 9,000 feet, and temperatures that average 30 degrees cooler than the Phoenix area, the White Mountains are a terrific getaway. This region is also home to ten sparkling lakes—our focus for this scenic driving tour—and we’ll explore as much as time allows.
Day One: We’ll leave the Valley with a stop for coffee & goodies in Payson, on our way to enjoy lunch on self in Heber, at The Red Onion. A true Kindred Tours favorite, The Red Onion is famous for their cheeseburgers, homemade chili and daily lunch specials. After lunch it’s back on the bus and we’ll enjoy the most remarkable scenery on our way to Hon-Dah Casino Resort, our headquarters for the next two nights. Nothing fancy, the Hon-Dah hotel rooms are clean and cozy, and buffet style dinner is included, at the Indian Pine Restaurant. After dinner we’ll enjoy a free evening. Check out the casino if you are so inclined, kick back with a cocktail in Spirits Bar, or enjoy the heated pool, spa or sauna.
Day Two: Breakfast is included at the hotel, and then it’s back on the bus and we’re off to explore the lakes of Arizona’s beautiful White Mountains. We’re keeping it scenic and easy, with a stop along the way for lunch on self. Late afternoon we’ll return to our hotel, where we’ll enjoy dinner, included, and another free evening.
Day Three: Breakfast is included at the hotel, and then it’s bags out and we’re on the bus headed for home. We’ll enjoy a scenic loop tour back to the Valley taking us through the Salt River Canyon, a 2,000-foot-deep river canyon, so gorgeous and loaded with history that it is often referred to as the Little Grand Canyon. This stretch of highway is broad and well-paved offering some of the most dramatic views ever seen from a bus window! We’ll make our way into Globe, where we’ll stop for lunch on self at Guayo’s Mexican Restaurant. After lunch it’s back on the bus, and we’ll hightail it for home with more great sights to enjoy along the way. This affordable tour includes so much! Don’t miss it
