Fly to Arizona for a boozy backpacking time
For two days, over the 17th and 18th, the Railroad Park and the Willcox Wine Garden will provide art from homegrown talent and from those further afield as well as locally produced food, like real Arizona honey. The event is free for all so backpackers who are trying to save money for cheap travel elsewhere need not worry. Although, if you want to do a bit of wine tasting from places such as the Keeling-Schaefer Vineyards, a session of six drinks will cost $10 (£6.10) - but you do get to keep the glass afterwards and there's the option of buying a bottle or a case, for the hardcore among you.
And, seeing as it's held that close to the Christmas season, anyone wanting to get souvenirs for their families waiting for them back at home could do worse than the displays of jewellery, pottery, photography and clothing - all crafted lovingly in Arizona. Live entertainment is also provided during the festival so you can relax in the autumn sunshine with a glass of wine in your hand and think about how great life really is.
