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!
What are some of the best restaurants in the Northeast area of Tucson?
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.
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?
Can you recommend a motel close to Pima Air Musuem. Looking for a good clean motel for seniors - serves free breakfast with reasonable rates - swimming pool
Sorry for this low level question but does anyone know the resort fee for Dove Mountain? Thanks
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.
Hi All I am travelling with my mum and best friend to Tucson in April, staying for 4 nights arriving on a Sunday. Can anyone suggest a place to eat, possibly fine dining / more up market than usual as its my best friends birthday and we will want to go out in the evening.

Coming to Tucson early March for first time and have singled out the above two hotels - just by luck?? Prefer a place thats relaxed and not pretentious or very exoensive. Do either fit and which would be your choice? Any advice would be great. Thanks a lot.
Does anyone have contact information for a photographer or gallery that has photographer of Sabino Canyon available for purchase?
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.
Where's the best place for snow play ie saucers etc for kids age 11,9,7,5 on Mt Lemmon?
Has anyone stayed here recently? Is it safe and clean? I am finding mixed reviews online, but they all seem to be at least 1 year old! Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks in advance for your help
I heard that Old Tucson Studios burned down a few years ago. Does anyone know if it was rebuilt, and is it open now ?
Does anyone know the maximum number of people the mission holds? Are people able to get married there? Thank you, tcheltz00
Meeting several friends there for the first time. Is there a place where we can sit, have a coke and wait for all of us to arrive that's around the park: Sunrise Dr. and Sabino Canyon Road?
What is the maximum length restriction for an RV at the park? I have a 40' fifth wheel.
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.
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.
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!! Marla

We will bringing our daughter to University of AZ in Tucson at the end of August, and I have not booked our flights yet. Does anyone have any experience with timing your travel booking for the best rate to Tucson?
What are the dates of the historical costume festival that I saw several years ago?
I am going to be in Tucson for a month conducting research at the University... unfortunatley I have to go alone because my husband will be tied up at work! Having never been there, and having never travelled as a single female, I was wondering what you guys would recommend as the best areas to live that are within walking distance to campus? I have a lead on one property that is just west of the university, between the campus and fourth avenue - would this be considered a safe area? Thank you!
Hi everybody, I’ll be moving with my family (Wife, 2 Childs (5 & 2 years)) sometime in the 3rd quarter 2008 to Tucson for 12 months assignment with IBM. It is my first time to US and would like to know what the best community/nigborhood to stay in. This includes, the distance to work, availability of schools, markets, restaurants and other major services. Also, what is the distance between Tucson downtown and IBM offices? Thank you all
Where can I find George L. Mountainlion's epitaph that was written on a huge vertical stone in the museum years ago? The words brought tears to my eyes and I would love to hear them again! Thanks so much! Diana Preusser
I will be arriving with my family (my husband, my son, and me) in tucson March 15. I will be going to The University of Arizona for a few months. I searched online for suitable furnished apartments that are affordable and close to the university but so far I couldn't find anything. If it's within walking distance to the campus, it's some kind of student housing and is not suitable for a family. If it is, it's faraway. Any suggestions??
How easy is it to walk around this city? How's the public transport.? Is it possible to get to any parks or sights other than museums? Thinking of here instead of Phoenix.
Hello, I've recently moved to Tucson (and Arizona as a whole) and am now a student here. My Fiance's birthday is coming up in Oct. and I'd like to get a hotel room for the night for him and I (as a surprise). I want somewhere nice, but not too expensive since minimum wage doesn't exactly make you rich :/ I'm really looking for a place with a pool (indoor or outdoor, doesn't matter), whirlpool, rooms with 1 bed (king preferably), and for the room's bathroom to have a tub (shower-tub combos work fine). I've tried browsing around online, but find it somewhat to be a pain, hence why I came here. Thank you for your help, I appreciate it :)
Hi My parents are staying in Tucson next March and are looking for transport to me us in Tombstone. I've heard there's a Douglas Super Shuttle that goes from Tucson to Douglas and stops in Tombstone. The phone number in various listings doesn't seem to have anyone who speaks English answering and my parents are trying to find out: 1. Where in Tucson does it go from? 2. What is the schedule (on a Sunday morning) and how long does it take? 3. How much it is? 4. Do they need to book or just turn up? Can anyone help? Thanks
