If you’re hoping to beat the heat up north while enjoying some spectacular views, look no further than the Firecracker Express. The Verde Canyon Railroad promises an authentic Fourth of July complete with barbecue on the patio and a visit from a bald eagle prior to departure at 1 p.m. Spend the morning enjoying a pancake breakfast and patriotic tunes from a local orchestra, followed by the Children’s Parade throughout the quaint town of Clarkdale. Tickets cost $100.95 and can be purchased online.
