• Verde Canyon Railroad - Clarkdale, Arizona

      Ride in restored, vintage Pullman cars pulled by a FP7 locomotive on a 20-miles scenic ride to the ghost town of Perkinsville and back. You'll pass through the high desert and 100 years of history as your train takes you through the canyon. Step out onto viewing platforms for plenty of photo ops with informative attendants to point things out and answer questions. Entertainment and food is available inside. By the way, inside is climate controlled. You could spot Ancient Sinagua ruins, bald eagles and Great Blue Herons as you pass close to canyon walls and riparian areas. It's a relaxing way to get a sense of the area.

      If you go:
      The train runs most days at 1 p.m. except Tuesdays with a few special evening trains. Check the website for the schedule and rates. You can also reserve your tickets online and book packages. Reservations are recommended. Clarkdale is west of Cottonwood and about two hours from Phoenix.
