Scottsdale: Half-Day Desert Discovery Eco-Tour in a Tesla

1. Scottsdale: Half-Day Desert Discovery Eco-Tour in a Tesla

Start the day with pickup at your hotel or residence in a luxury, eco-friendly Tesla Model X SUV. First, take short hike through a desert canyon at the beloved Lake Pleasant regional park. Enjoy the scenic views and even have the opportunity to splash in the water. Next, drive along the famous Desert Foothills Scenic Drive. See craggy tors, remnants of ancient granite batholiths. Enjoy plenty of opportunities to photograph stands of the world-famous Saguaro Cactus. After the scenic drive, arrive at "Water to Water" by artists Christine Tanz and Paul Edwards. This piece of public art explores how Scottsdale has harnessed water and used it to build a thriving city. Visit the Scottsdale Xeriscape Garden, a National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat, and learn about water conservation and nature appreciation. Lastly, explore the epic waterfalls at Arizona Falls, a recommissioned hydroelectric power plant from the early 1900s. Here you will learn the science of water delivery and power production that takes place in Arizona, before being returned to your pickup point.
