2-Hour Arizona Desert Guided E-Bike Tour

If you’ve ever ridden an e-bike, you know how fun they can be. And if you’re new to the sport, there’s nowhere better to test the waters than the picturesque Arizona desert. Starting at the Sundial town center, set out on an adventure with a local guide. Cruise through the desert, learn about local flora and fauna, and get great photos and video along the way.

What started out as a charming little desert garden has become rather ridiculous. The arches? All the new memorials? Carefree used to have a couple first class events - Villafane's Free Halloween Festival and The Christmas Festival - both gone and with the relationship irreversibly severed from the Villafane's there is no hope of resurrecting something that truly made Carefree special. Carefree has lost its way in the last few years - such a shame.

Enjoy a short stroll through the Carefree Gardens. The cacti and succulents are well taken care of. Parents with children can sit and watch their children play on the giant Gila Monster slide. During the cooler months, Art shows and Farmers Market happen here. There is also a “Little Free Library” box where adults, children and teens may take free books or recycle their own. Many restaurants, galleries and boutiques in the area.

They put Christmas lights on the cactus - so it is fun to stroll through the gardens at sunset. There are many unusual cactus there too.

The desert gardens are beautiful! Meander through the gardens, stop to peek in the Little Free Library kiosk by the gila monster slide, grab a bite to eat at the many restaurants. Cute shops and art venues.
