Jan. 8, 2013 - PRLog -- Fort McDowell, Ariz. January 8, 2013 — Fort McDowell Adventures, one of the most unique venues in Scottsdale, is pleased to announce its inclusion in a revered “bucketlist” of the top fifty things to do in the Valley by Phoenix, Ariz.-based is the online arm of local news publication The Arizona Republic.  The list recommends renting a kayak from Fort McDowell Adventures to enjoy a trip down the Salt River spotting indigenous flora and fauna in the number nine position out of fifty local things to do in Phoenix.

Fort McDowell Adventures is one of the most unique event venues and entertainment complexes in the Valley of the Sun and offers four alternating weekly activities from a group of eight, every Friday with their “Sign Up for Adventure” program.  The weekly activities include Jeep tours, horseback riding, kayaking, Green Zebra Tom Car tours, a “City Slicker Cattle Drive”, Segway tours, steam boat rides and a cultural heritage tour called “The Yavapai Experience”; a nod to the native-owned lands on which Fort McDowell Adventures operates.   Fort McDowell Adventures boasts a 20+ year history as an event, activity and entertainment destination serving local residents, hotels, destination marketing companies, event planners and more in the Phoenix and Scottsdale region.

Kayaking the local Salt or Verde rivers in an inflatable watercraft with Fort McDowell Adventures offers innumerable opportunities to explore the local landscape and view indigenous animals like wild mustangs, bald eagles, javalinas, Arizona ground squirrels and other wildlife, as well as domesticated horses, cattle and free range livestock herds.  Additionally, guests are afforded unparalleled views of four local mountain ranges framing the northeast valley of the Phoenix and Scottsdale region.

“It’s such an honor to be listed amongst other local favorites here in Phoenix and Scottsdale,” states Fort McDowell Adventures’ General Manager Rick Cibik.  “When you consider all the things to do in Phoenix and narrow it down to just fifty -- it’s just mindboggling. To be in the top 10 is a testament to the activities and adventures we offer here weekly.”

All guests of Fort McDowell Adventures’ “Sign Up for Adventure” program are invited to spend the evening enjoying their weekly “Friday Night Franks” cowboy cookout and wiener roast after the adventure activity.  Each “Sign Up for Adventure” ticket is a full package including a cookout meal consisting of a Hebrew National Hot Dog, a Johnsonville Bratwurst, or veggie dog, beverages and a s’mores kit to roast over an open fire while enjoying live music.
