Family Fun Outings – Arizona Style- part 1 The Duttons

Spring Break title

Spring Break is right around the corner and if you are anything like me, you can’t wait for it to get here, but after a day or two of squabbles over the remote, you are ready for it to be over.

Never fear! If you are staycationing here in Arizona (or visiting from somewhere else), I have a few great family finds you may not have thought of before, that will turn your break into a vacation! All this week I am going to be highlighting fun things to do right here in the valley of the sun. Check back each day for more Arizona fun!

Disclosure: I received free admittance to many of these places as a blogger or for specific events, but would never tell you about them if my family and I hadn’t had a blast there!

Part 1: The DUTTON Family Show

Every summer countless tourists make their way to Branson, Mo. to experience the talent and entertainment there. What you may not realize is that for half of the year, one of Branson’s best shows is set-up here in Mesa

The Duttons–you may have seen them on America’s Got Talent–are a family full of seriously talented musicians. Mom and Dad were serious about those violin lessons and it shows! They have repeated won honors for best fiddler, instrumentalist, performer, etc. of Branson. But what I love is this show isn’t just about talent, it is all about family! You will see three generations of performers in this high-energy, hilarious, fast-paced variety show–perfect for all ages. I kept wishing I had brought the kids. They would have been entertained and motivated to practice their instruments.

This guy, “Julio” is absolutely hilarious! You leave the theatre smiling, tapping your toes and feeling like you just made friends with the entire Dutton family (and there are a lot of them).

You can catch the Duttons in AZ through the first part of April! Get tickets here. Also, on the days they aren’t performing you can catch country star Billy Dean live in the Dutton theatre!

Come back for more Spring Break AZ Style fun and a giveaway!
