September means back-to-school season for many Arizona families, but that shouldn’t stop Phoenix residents from living a healthy, active lifestyle. Sitting at school or work for as many as eight hours a day can take a toll on the body: fatty deposits build up, obesity rates rise, and overall lifespans are shorter in populations with sedentary lifestyles. Kids may participate in gym at school, but one hour of activity (often less in public school systems) simply is not enough to aid children and their growing bodies. Did you know Arizona Outdoor Fun can actually help your family lead an active, healthy lifestyle?

Thrill the kids with ATV and UTV rentals in Phoenix. Choose from guided or unguided tour options on desert trails through valleys, over mountains and into the heart of the old west. We offer the valley’s only “Show Up & Ride” program in the Tonto National forest and the Bradshaw mountains. Choose from Tonto National Park’s 30-square mile marked trail or embark on an educational western adventure with a skilled tour guide. The kids won’t believe family fun can be so cool!

One of our more active family adventures in Phoenix is paddle boarding at Lake Pleasant. This stand-up activity allows parents and kids to get a full-body workout while enjoying the cool water and relaxing scenery of the Arizona desert. Work with an Arizona Outdoor Fun activity specialist to select the right size board for each member of your family and select a paddle that will allow for maximum leverage. Experience the thrill of standing on the water and using your core to maintain stability as you glide smoothly past saguaro cactuses and mountain scenery.

Surprise the family with a trendy geocaching adventure. Search for hidden “treasure” in the desert, learn survival skills, and use a GPS to locate various challenges. This physical and mental exercise will challenge everyone to work together towards a common goal. Your family will grow closer than ever before with this unique, goal-oriented activity. Bonus: the kids will be excited to go back to school and share their new real-world knowledge with friends after hiking in the Phoenix desert.

Work with an Arizona Outdoor Fun specialist to customize a day-long Phoenix adventure for your family. Working with our adventure experts comes at no additional charge and can greatly enhance your family fun. Receive expert recommendations for additional adventures and add-ons your family will love. Shooting adventures, a barbeque lunch or dinner, or even a hot air balloon ride are all ideas your specialist might suggest. The sky is the limit with Arizona Outdoor Adventures!

With so many options to choose from, it’s easy to understand why Arizona Outdoor Fun is the top choice for active family activities in Phoenix! This fall, get off the couch and onto an ATV, headed toward unknown adventure. The kids will never see this coming. Create your day of fun today!
