SIGHTSEEING

The Carefree Cave Creek area is a nature lover’s paradise. You can take jeep tours through the desert landscape and visit an old fashioned 1883 gold mine, or take in the view from a hot air balloon soaring over the desert floor. For more adventurous types rent a 4-wheel drive all-terrain vehicle and explore miles of back country roads on your own.
