Cal-Am RV Resorts are immaculately maintained with attractive desert landscaping, crystal-clear pools, relaxing Jacuzzis, and gleaming dance floors. When you are not lazing on a sun-splashed patio under Arizona’s endless turquoise sky, you can take advantage of the many craft, hobby, and card rooms that are housed in beautifully appointed community centers.
At a Cal-Am Resort, you can rent a vacation home or park your rig on a super-sized RV site. When you arrive, you will be greeted by a friendly and knowledgeable staff that will assist you with your reservations, and make sure you are comfortably settled in.
Each five-star Cal-Am Resort provides first-class amenities and is located just minutes from the sort of attractions that will turn a good vacation into a great one.
Mesa Regal, Apache Wells, Valle del Oro, Sun Life, and The Villages at Val Vista are located just east of Phoenix in Mesa. Canyon Vistas RV Resort is a little farther east in the shadow of the spectacular Superstition Mountains, while Sunflower RV Resort is a little to the west of Phoenix. Each resort boasts spectacular views of the mountains’ ever-changing colors. And the breathtaking winter sunsets are not to be missed.
You will find a full schedule of activities, dances, classes, and entertainment at each Cal-Am Resort. Large well-equipped sewing centers and craft rooms offer kachina carving, paper tole, painting, reminiscence writing, quilting, scrapbooking and many other fun classes. Hobbyists at all skill levels can work in lapidary, ceramics, stained glass, woodcarving and more. If you are interested in a specific hobby or craft, you can call the Cal-Am toll-free national reservations line, (888) 940-8989, to find out which resort is best suited to you.
If spectator sports are your thing, then a Cal-Am RV Resort is a handy place to be. Major league baseball, football, basketball, and hockey are nearby. NASCAR fans will be drawn to Phoenix International Raceway. You could catch a local rodeo, attend the races at a greyhound track, or extend your stay pastthe winter to take in a few spring training baseball games.
Tennis players can play under the lights, and golfers will find dozens of nearby golf courses guaranteed to challenge the accomplished amateur or satisfy the weekend duffer. Hikers can get up-close and personal with stately saguaro or flame-tipped ocotillo cactuses as they explore countless miles of trails, ranging from handicap-accessible routes to rigorous mountain climbs.
And, of course, no vacation is complete without a little shopping and fine dining. Nearby Old Town Scottsdale has charming boutiques, Native American ware, and many art galleries. While you’re there, go “celebrity-seeking” at the Biltmore Hotel or have an elegant brunch at The Boulders. Scottsdale is also the place to spend a few relaxing hours being pampered at one of several elegant day spas.
No matter which Cal-Am Resort you choose, antiques galleries abound, a giant flea market is just minutes away, haute-cuisine restaurants and ethnic eateries beckon, and, of course, there are more great Mexican restaurants than you can imagine.
A few special day trips also deserve investigation. Sedona offers spectacular red rock scenery. Jeep tours will take you down back roads to enjoy what most tourists miss. The nearby, nearly vertical town of Jerome is a must-see on many tourist lists. Perched precariously on the side of a mountain, this little “mining ghost town that was” is now enjoying a resurgence with local artisans, small shops, and cafés that serve delicious food.
Another scenic highway takes you to Roosevelt Lake and past the historic buildings of Tortilla Flats, population six. Don’t miss the prickly pear cactus ice cream at its one-of-a-kind restaurant and store. You can experience Arizona’s diverse climate with a scenic drive onto the Mogollan Rim with its majestic forests of Ponderosa pine and jewel-like fishing lakes and streams.
An Arizona vacation means lots of sunshine, abundant outdoor recreation and endless opportunities for sightseeing. If you stay at a Cal-Am Resort, you will have access to numerous amenities, organized activities and classes to fit just about any interest. In addition, Cal-Am provides old-fashioned hospitality and a friendly staff. To learn more about Cal-Am Resorts, call (888) 940-8989 or see www.cal-am.com.
