The Desert Diamond Casino

by jedd43 about The Desert Diamond Casino

There are two casinos in Tucson.
The Desert Diamond Casino is the one we went to.
The woman next to me won a bunch but not me so we weren't there long.
It was fun though. Wear anything you want to.

Travel Tips for Tucson

The 'old highway US 80' (now...

by VNV6768

The 'old highway US 80' (now replaced by I-10) east of Tucson is a 2-lane mountain road that twists through what was probably an old stagecoach route (the 'Butterfield' Road, of which only the New Mexico portion has been immortalized in the several movies going by the simple name of 'Stagecoach' with Doc Holliday, Wyatt Earp and the gang). The eastern portion goes by the name of Benson Highway and indeed it reaches the outskirts of the town of Benson. Old US 80 went south from here to the Mexican border at Douglas/Agua Prieta, then north to meet the stagecoach route once again in a hamlet called Rodeo NM.
How to find the Benson Highway. Do not exit !-10 within the city of Tucson itself, unless a view of decaying, anciently-built motels and 'tourist courts' really inspires you. The 'Benson Highway' I'm talking about is reached by a simple exit sign reading 'Vail'--I cannot remember the number of the exit, but I remember the highway is unnumbered and virtually unmarked; the reason you don't wander off into the wilderness is that it remains the only paved byway you can use to 'shunpike.' Vail is an even tinier hamlet than Eloy, on I-10 near the junction with 1-8 west of Tucson, and you'll surely miss either one if you blink. As you near Benson, if you should be driving at night, you will top a ridge from which there will be a panoramic view of the entire countryside up to Fort Huachuca.

The city of Benson has a real-life old-West quality about it, as does all of southeast Arizona--Geronimo and Cochise Apache country, untamed and untameable. So enjoy--remember you won't get lost by sticking to the paved roads, although you'll find a few in Apache-land that the state and the feds have feuded about maintenance on the Indian reservation, and the upshot of it is that some roads on some reservations are not maintained really at all.

Alternative Place

by Basaic about The Surly Wench Pub

Typical clientele is listed as "tough chicks and rock dudes". Slightly older crowd. Decor tend to pictures of painted ladies, roller derby jerseys, and a poster of Angelina Jolie. The Surly Wench attracts a very interesting crowd. Alternative lifestyles, welcome. They sometimes have live music of the acoustic, punk, or trash variety. Hours are 5PM to 2AM. Tattoos, biker jackets, jeans, fishnet, etc.

One of my favorite mexican food places

by raevnzno about El Charro Cafe

I've been to 2 of the 3 locations. The original location downtown has such a great atmosphere, and has been around since 1922. The eastside location is fun as well. Both are decorated with the wonderful bright colors, warm saltillo tile floors. The downtown location is the one featured on the Food Channel. The sonoran enchiladas and the corn tamales are my favorite. My companion always orderes the Carne Seca plate. Choose your favorite or try something new, you won't be disappointed.

Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum

by roamer61

Actually more of a zoo than a museum, the Desert Museum is home to a large collection of desert animals and plants (many in their natural habitat). Here one can see grand stands of mighty Saguaro Cactus and a host of animals including Javelina, Mountain Lion and playful Prarie Dogs. Also there are numerous reptiles and amphibians on display as well as certain invertebrates. Birdwatching is popular here as well for not only are there 2 aviaries, but one can see a host of native birdlife in the wild as well such as Cactus Wren and Gila Woodpecker. The latter making its nest in the trunks of the saguaro. There are 2 restaurants and a nice gift shop on the premises. Plan to spend at least 2 hours (3-4 is best). Bring water and a hot to protect yourself from the powerful desert sun.
