In this overnight adventure, you’ll travel back in time! Saturday will be a full day of adventure as the first activity takes place on the Dolly Steamboat where you will take a 6-mile cruise in hopes to see desert bighorn sheep, bald eagles and a host of other animals viewed from the decks of the Dolly! Views will also include the beautiful flora from the stately Saguaro cacti to the microscopic organism called desert varnish. An unforgettable vista of volcanic “welded Tuff” canyons and 1300 foot cliffs awaits you on Canyon Lake. This is one of Arizona’s best-kept secrets! Upon completing your afternoon cruise, you will be able to see the sights and take in lunch at Tortilla Flats, “The friendliest little town in Arizona”. According to Gross Management Department of the state’s main U.S. Post Office in Phoenix, Tortilla Flat is presumed to be Arizona’s smallest official community having a U.S. Post Office and voter’s precinct. The town has a population of 6. There is a lot of history and stories that go along with this small town that you need to visit it for yourself. As you leave Tortilla Flats, the next stop calls for Goldfields Ghost Town where you can visit over 20 shops, exhibits, and attractions from the old west. You’ll also get to witness an old west gunfight performed by the famous Goldfield Gunfighters! After more than 115 years, travelers from all over the world still visit this gold mining town located on the historic Apache Trail ( and enjoy the excitement and grandeur of Arizona’s Wild West!
