      Day trips with a 3 1/2 year old

      by Addison833 Online Now Apr 19, 2015 at 11:20 AM

      Hello there! We are heading back to Tucson in mid-May and are looking for ideas for day trips with our 3.5 year old. On our last trip we went to the Desert Museum (we'll be going back!), Pima Airspace Museum, the zoo, San Javier del Back Mission and Mt. Lemmon. We're thinking of going to the Kartchner Caverns this time so am hoping to get your thoughts on that and also wondering if there's anything else we should check out in the area that we may have missed the last time?

      Thanks!

    • I’m looking for a place to live

      by ted56g Online Now Apr 2, 2015 at 8:03 AM

      Hello,
      I’m a French student in engineering and I’ve an internship in Tucson from 25th May 2015 to 3rd october .
      I’m looking for a place to live during this period. I don’t know Tucson and it’s a little bit hard for me to find something from France. Would you, please, help me?

      I’m searching something clean, safety, nice and furnished (with a laundry unit or washer-machine is better). I want to find something near the university of Arizona because my job will be near it.
      I’m okay with sharing an apartment with other people and exchange about our different culture, but I prefer to have my own room.

      If you have any information that could help me (place to avoid, nice housing,…) don’t hesitate!
      Thank you!

    • From Tucson to North East

      by Saraanderlini Online Now Jan 24, 2015 at 5:31 AM

      Hi everybody, I need some advice! I'd like next summer to visit the States, especially go to Tucson and then travel up north, go to, let's say NYC. Now, I've heard of Megabus as one of the cheapest way to travel around (actually something cheap is what I'm really looking for). But, apparently, there's no megabus service in AZ. Do you know any other websites or alternative means of transport to get north east? As cheap as possible! Thanks in advance :)

      Hi, I'm a single mom with 9y.o. son, we are from Europe. We'll be in Tucson for a week in April 2015. We'll have to connect Roadrunner hostel with: Hilton el con (Oro valley) - conference, and museums (desert, Pima air&space), and Flandrau observatory.
      As I prefer bike rental instead of car, my question is: are these routes feasible by bike? I like biking, I adore it. Thank you all in advance! Bye

      Tuscon and area with a 17 month old

      by Addison833 Online Now Apr 22, 2013 at 6:12 AM

      We'll be traveling with our 17 month old daughter to Tucson, staying with family towards the end of May. We will also be staying for two nights in Sedona. We plan to drive around a lot and see the Grand Canyon, but I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for places to see with a toddler (give me strength!). It doesn't have to be kid-focused, but perhaps parks or areas where little toddlers can run around and let off steam. I'm just starting to do research about this trip now so am really open to any and all suggestions. Thanks in advance!

      Should I go Saguaro National Park if I do not intend to go on the trail or hike?

      by Daisylove Online Now Feb 29, 2012 at 6:12 PM

      Hi,

      I am planning for my vacation. We will be at Albuquerque driving northeast towards Phoenix.

      1. I am wondering if Tucson worth a day trip?
      2. Should I go to Saguaro National Park if I do not intend to go on the trail or hike. I have been to Joshua tree national park, no doubt it is amazing to see the hugh land full of Joshua trees... but after hours of driving in the park, we are overwhelmed. I am not sure if that would be the case for Saguaro National Park?
      3. Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix is in our plan. Should I go for both Saguaro National Park and Desert Botanical Garden? or just either one?

      Hope to hear some thoughts and tips. Thank you.

      Hotel Recommendations

      by Gillybob Online Now Oct 10, 2011 at 8:22 AM

      Will be staying in Tucson for 3 nights in early November. I'll be arriving by Greyhound and am looking for hotel recommendations that will give me easy access to Tucson and its public transportation (don't drive so cars aren't possible).

      I don't fancy Hotel Congress because of the potential for noise. I'd like to stay under US$100 a night. Armory Park B&B is a consideration. Something that might have it's own tour desk would be a plus as I would like to take a tour to Tombstone if I can fit it in.

      On a side note, are there generally taxis to be found at the Greyhound depot when Greyhounds have arrived?

      Hi there--

      My husband and I will be in Tucson in late July. We would like to stay in an area where there are several bars and restaurants within walking distance of a hotel/motel. We are from a college town so we enjoy those kind of hang outs. We don't require a 5 star hotel but would like a recommendation for some place that is clean and quiet. We will be there for a week. We will be attending a gathering at the Doubletree Hilton as well.

      Thanks so much.

    • Tucson Nightlife

      by KatyM Online Now Feb 21, 2010 at 5:27 PM

      I'm coming over for a visit in two weeks (from the UK). I'm staying with a great friend and we want to have a really nice night out. We are not teenagers and we don't want to "pick up guys". We would like a quiet place where we can chat, with decent wine and maybe with some scenery or something else interesting about it, for a night out. Music is okay, as long as it isn't intrusive. My friend smokes and I don't. Security is important to us both, so we need a place where we feel safe.

      Any suggestions?

      Also, what is the situation with taxis (cabs) in Tucson? Are there regulated companies we can trust? My friend is dubious for some reason.

      Safe for a day-trip to Nogales Mexico?

      by Tom_In_Madison Online Now Jan 9, 2009 at 6:06 AM

      I'm probably making it to Tucson in March. I was thinking of going across the border to Nogales Mexico for a day. I've heard of all the violence in Mexico and wasn't sure if Nogales is one of the cities that's best left unvisited? I'd only be there during the day, and possible stopping in a pharmacist to pick up some inexepensive drugs for my mom if that's still allowed.

      Tucson Airport layout and directions

      by kop-queen Online Now Oct 13, 2008 at 4:40 PM

      Its a few years since my last visit so I only have very vague recollections of the airport layout and remember missing our intended route as we drove away in our rental car. I'm on my own this time and it will have been a long day so the more knowledge I am armed with the better!

      I will be arriving from Atlanta having cleared customs and immigration there so hopefully it will be a fairly simple process of collecting my bags and heading for the car rentals.

      From memory it was a short walk to pick up the car (Dollar this time)and I thought the garaging was under cover but maybe it was just dark? Can anyone give me detailed driving details as I come out from the garaging? I will be heading east onto I10 towards Benson.

      Neighborhoods in Tucson

      by marlasimone4 Online Now Sep 7, 2008 at 2:46 AM

      Hi, I've been living (on and off) in Tucson for the past two years and I still can't find a reasonable area to rent a house/apartment in. I'm a full-time grad student and work part-time and currently live in an 1 bed-room apartment in the central NW. I want to be very close to the University and would prefer to upgrade to 2 bedroom house or guest house near the University and in a safe area, but everything seems outrageously priced. For those long term residents, I'd appreciate any advice. Ideally, I'd love a large guest house in the Sam Hughes area, but they seem impossible to find (oh, and I want to live alone). If you have recommendations for other areas that are safe and close to the U, I'd appreciate the insight. Also, if you know of anyone renting a reasonable guesthouse or house that sounds right please let me know or pass the word. Thanks!!
