Tucson is known for its cuisine and is increasingly becoming renown as a foodies’ hotspot. There will be countless places for our group to go and enjoy great al fresco dining in the desert.
Getting Your Drink On
Travel Ted loves to celebrate his German & Slovakian heritage by imbibing in the occasional beer (cerveza is a very popular term in Tucson) or other forms of libation which can be easily remedied. Although the bars and lounges at the hotel are great, Tucson is home to over 20 microbreweries and a plethora of cantinas. Barrio Brewing, Dove Mountain Brewing Company, and Sentinel Peak Brewing are some of the local favorites. Other bars include the Outlaw Saloon, Sidecar, and Pinnacle Peak. Ted’s impromptu excursions to local watering holes and eateries with a festive group of fun seekers are legendary and not to be missed.
Taking It All In
Tucson is spread out over an enviable setting, and we will be including some exciting excursions in its wide-open spaces. Trips to the Sonora Desert Museum, Saguaro National Park, and the Wilhelm Family Vineyards are sure to be big hits. Travel Ted will also be detailing a long list of other offsite excursions, including Cocoraque Ranch, El Presidio Park, the Fourth Avenue neighborhood, Mission San Xavier de Bac, Mount Lemmon Scenic Byway, Old Tucson Movie Studios, Pima Air & Space Museum, Sentinel Peak, and Tohono Chul, to name a few.
Located in the arid Sonoran Desert, Tucson is blessed with sunny skies, virtually no rain, and temperatures between 60-75 degrees can be expected during our trip. Jeans, shorts, and other casual attire will suit you fine, although you will want to pack a sweater or light jacket as well as chino pants or a cocktail dress for the evenings. It will be a fun and relaxing time for everyone to get out of our beloved Midwest winters!
