Family

If you've ever played the 1980s computer game Oregon Trail or studied the history of early American homesteaders, you'll appreciate a ride in a mule-drawn covered wagon. It's as close as you'll get to being a brave first settler in the region.

Your kids will love the adventure as well and luckily, Covered Wagon Tours has modified the wagon so it's a bit cosier - and you won't have to hunt for your dinner. During the tour, learn about the desert's ecology, local Native American customs and earthquake geology. Then head back to camp for live music and a barbecue.
