Events & Adventures Arizona has a Fresh new Outlook on Camping

Nothing is more American than pitching a tent, building a bonfire and grabbing a cold one while being surrounded by friends.  Camping is a summer getaway, a rite of passage, and gives us a sense of nostalgia.  It’s the best way to remove yourself from your daily routine and step back into an easier way of life.  If you are not typically a camper or outdoorsy person you’re in luck, because here in Arizona we have the perfect camping environment.  Not only is it just a short drive north to get away from the heat, the dry weather keeps the bugs at bay, and the cooler weather makes it perfect for swimming or cozying up next to the fire. Northern Arizona has beautiful water sources for kayaking, high rising evergreens that canopy the area with shade, and amazing evenings with clear, starry skies.

Events & Adventures takes this as an opportunity to help you leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind on Memorial and Labor Day weekends. This Memorial Day weekend we will be heading to Cottonwood, do some hiking amongst the Red Rocks of Sedona and kayak in the Verde River. The nights will be spent fireside getting to know new friends, and reminiscing about past adventures.  Outdoorsy or not, Events & Adventures has you covered.  There will be camping experts at your disposal that will teach you how to rough it for the three days, or how to “glamp” up your campsite to make it just as glamorous as your own bedroom.

As the summer months roll in, Events & Adventures will be taking to the high country multiple times. We’re going to the Mt. Lemmon cabins for 4th of July weekend (with all the hotel luxuries you need, while still getting to enjoy the outdoors) and tent camping again up north for Labor Day.  The days in the valley are getting warm, so join Events & Adventures for the perfect escape from the heat and stress!

The Minneapolis Club has Great Activities for the Summer

There is nothing Minnesotans love more than when the weather finally starts to warm up and they can enjoy hanging out on a patio, enjoying ice cold beverages and playing yard games. That’s why this summer Events & Adventures Minneapolis is having a Sunday Summer Patio Tour. We’re hitting up all the best places around the Twin Cities that fit the patio lounging theme.

We are kicking off our Summer Patio Tour at Forepaugh’s in May. Forepaugh’s Restaurant is a gorgeous, state-of-the-art venue located in a historic, Victorian mansion. The rooftop terrace overlooks Irvine Park and the quaint porch and patio offer views of the Ramsey House.

We will get to try a small tasting menu created just for Events & Adventures members, including great dishes like beef satay, lemon candy, shrimp caprese bites, and Malaysian chicken samosas. We will also have our own personal whiskey connoisseur who will be mixing personalized drinks for our guests and educating those who want to learn about whiskey. He’ll also be holding parlor games like trivia where our members can win great prizes.

Forepaugh’s is also known for being haunted so they will be hosting ghost tours through the mansion for the brave at heart. The paranormal activity in Forepaugh’s Restaurant seems to revolve around the original owner of the mansion, Joseph Lybrandt Forepaugh and his former maid and lover named Molly. Their apparitions have been seen on countless occasions within Forepaugh’s Restaurant.

Without a doubt there is something for everyone to enjoy at Forepaugh’s.  See you on the patio!

Our Minnesota Club is Getting Ready for Their Summer Adventure

Here in Minnesota the weather is starting to warm up and everyone is excited to get outside and enjoy the beautiful scenery. This summer Events & Adventures Minneapolis is going to get out and take advantage of the few months of bliss we get each year during these seasons! So get ready to check a few things off your bucket list because together we’re going to give you a summer adventure like nothing you’ve ever experienced before.

We’re heading out to Sandstone to try out Anchors Climbing Course, which is a rock climbing course built with top-rope anchor systems, and top-belaying anchors. We’ll also learn some aid climbing techniques, so if our members acquire a taste for rock climbing they’ll have the knowledge to be able to safely go on their next adventure. After that, our next stop is the Kettle River for white water rafting right in our own backyard! The rapids on the Hell’s Gate section of the Kettle River are action-packed with spectacular views. The three hour trip races through rapids that vary from intermediate to advanced in difficulty.

We also have our Memorial Day camping trip coming up; it’s one of the biggest events of the whole year! We’re meeting up with the Chicago club in the Wisconsin Dells for a weekend full of adventures and good times. Then, make sure to take the 4th of July off because we’ll be watching the fireworks on a private yacht on Lake Minnetonka! There’ll be breathtaking sights, a summer breeze, and delightful cuisine, so this event is sure to be a truly unforgettable night!

Later in the summer we’re hitting Ft. Snelling Base Camp, where we can all work together and inspire each other to face our fears head on conquer the 30 foot rope course. And for those who are not as brave but still want to join us, there’s a 15 foot indoor course that is much less intimidating. These are only a few of the awesome events we’ll be hosting in the next few months. We’ll also be making the most of the spring and summer with bonfires, drive-ins, sand volleyball, wine tasting, pickleball, and a lot of other exciting things! So get ready to have the time of your life, because with Events & Adventures Minneapolis, your social calendar is always filled!
